Our Club’s primary aim is for all players to have fun and we request your support in the following
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 may be required for certain 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.
We cannot guarantee placement in a team with friends due to the many factors involved in team selection, however if there is a particular circumstance that requires players to be placed in a particular team this will be considered. The Committee’s decision on team selection is final.
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.
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 I claim a sports voucher and it is not accepted by the Office of Recreation and Sport I understand I will be required to pay the outstanding balance of full fees by the first match.
See Wesley Fees Policy for further information.
