Our Club’s primary aim is for all players to have fun and we request your support in the following

Team Selection

Teams will be selected based on age, ability and/or experience (beginners are welcome!). Teams are selected according to number of nominations (numbers in an age group) and following the training/grading sessions which are compulsory for most age groups. Training/grading sessions and team selection are conducted by experienced Club coaches and at least two Committee members. Teams within age groups are determined by numbers of players, experience, court position, ability and age. Divisions in each age group are determined by SAUCNA following recommendations from Wesley Netball Club. Players may be moved between teams within the first few weeks of competition. We try hard to accommodate preferred court positions as stated on a player’s registration form but to ensure balanced teams, this is not always possible.

As stated on the registration form, we cannot guarantee placement in a team with friends. We will consider requests but due to the many factors involved in team selection, requests cannot always be granted. The Committee’s decision on team selection is final.

Training

Training is compulsory during the Winter season. Training could be held on any week night (Mon-Fri) depending on availability of the coach. Players who do not attend training should expect to have less court time if all other players in their team are available.

Payment

Full payment of fees must be made at the time of registration to secure placement in a team. Membership fees do not include uniform costs. No payment=no team placement. If a player withdraws their registration from Wesley Netball Club they need to request a refund in writing to the Committee for consideration. If a refund is granted, an administration fee of $30 will be retained by the Club.

If I am submitting a Sports Voucher to the Club to reduce my registration fees, I will do so by the due date.  If the voucher is not accepted by the Office of Recreation and Sport I understand I will be required to pay the outstanding $50 by the first match.

  • Do not argue with the Umpire or team officials
  • Act as a role model. Show respect to Umpires and team officials. Lead by example and be reasonable in your expectations

Emergency

In the event of an emergency, when the emergency contacts are unavailable, the player or their parent/guardian consent to them being taken to hospital by a Club Representative or Ambulance at their cost. Netball is a vigorous physical sport and injuries can be sustained as a result of participation. Players and/or their parent/guardian agree to play for the Club entirely at their own risk and fully indemnify the Club against all costs, claims or demands incurred or brought against the Club arising in any way, whether through injury or otherwise, as a result of playing for Wesley Netball Club.
