How much are fees?
Fees for the Winter season per player are $175 (Junior and Senior). The fees cover equipment, umpiring costs, insurance and Association fees. Fees do not include player uniform costs.
Can I use a Government issued Sports Voucher? (Reception to Yr9 only)
Wesley Netball Club is a registered club for the Sports Voucher Program - an S.A. Government initiative administered by the Office of Recreation and Sport. The program provides an opportunity for school aged children from Reception to Year 9 to receive a $100 discount on registration fees. The purpose is to increase the number of children playing organised sport by reducing cost as a barrier to participate in sport.
Who is eligible?
All South Australian school children in reception to year 9. Remember it is one voucher for every child per calendar year, so can only be used for one sport.
How can I claim?
You must claim the sports voucher and enter your Medicare details during registration. Play HQ will automatically apply the sports voucher discount to your fee payment.
We will verify that you are entitled to the reduced fee with the details you have provided. If the voucher is not accepted by the Office of Recreation and Sport, you will be contacted and will be required to pay the outstanding $100 prior to the commencement of the first match of the season.
How can I get involved with the netball club?
Being involved as a volunteer can be a rewarding experience and we cannot operate without them. Being involved offers the chance to form new friendships with other parents and players and be more involved in your child’s interests. We welcome anyone who is willing to assist. Please let us know by indicating your interest on the registration form or contacting us. Roles and opportunities include:
New Committee members are always welcome please contact the Secretary for more information.
Coaching positions are usually filled from within our netball community, often a parent or relative. Some of our Coaches continue in this role for many years, offering quality coaching to our teams but we welcome anyone who is willing to give coaching a go.
The main attribute needed for coaching is enthusiasm. Coaches usually run the compulsory weekly training session for their team, held at a time suitable to them.
Team Managers assist the Coach in various ways by creating team rosters, managing team equipment, communicating with their players, organising scorecards etc.
We need two umpires for every home match during the season. We are always interested in training and mentoring new umpires (minimum age 14) and welcoming accredited umpires to our roster. Umpires are paid according to their level of accreditation and the grade they umpire.
Umpires require a solid understanding of the rules, the ability to apply the rules with a calm demeanour, a confident and loud voice, white clothing and a whistle.
The Association runs ongoing training/certification courses throughout the season.
For any enquiries regarding Umpiring please contact our Umpire Co-ordinator Kerryn Berry on 0420 981 131.
