In the event of inclement weather, the following protocols are in place:
Coaches will make a decision for their own team and will notify parents and/or players via text. If conditions are deemed dangerous by the Committee, training will be cancelled and posted to Facebook.
The Association is responsible for deciding if games will proceed. A decision to call off morning games due to inclement weather is made at 7.30am on the day of play, although in some instances the grass courts may be closed the night before by Council, while the call for afternoon games is made at 12.00pm. Once the Association has notified the club, we will post to Facebook and text coaches.
Please assume training and games are proceeding unless otherwise notified.
No jewellery is permitted to be worn during games. Please note that taping of earrings is not permitted under Netball Australia rules. Any player caught playing with jewellery will be asked to leave the court until such time as the item is removed. Please do not take your child to have their ears pierced immediately before or during the season.
