It’s ready, set, go for 2016 netball season
Sign On Days
Our sign-on days for the 2016 Saturday competition will take place at the netball courts on Bacon St on February 20 and 27 from noon-2pm. Club delegates will be present to accept both team and single player registrations for all players five years old and upwards.
Our NetSetGO! coordinator, Amy Jones, will also be present on sign-on days to accept registrations and answer questions for newcomers aged between 5-7yrs for this program. The cost of NetSetGO! is $75, which includes a great participant pack including a Gilbert netball, ANZ NetSetGO! t-shirt, NSW Swifts pencil case and a participation medal. This is a great opportunity for aspiring young players to get active, make new friends and become engaged in the sport we love.
No pay, no play
Players should keep in mind that fees for the year will need to be paid either during initial registration or shortly after due to the 'no pay, no play' rule imposed on all players by week two of the competition season. This year's competition will commence on Saturday, March 12. We look forward to seeing both new and old faces join us for the upcoming netball season.
Congratulations to all the girls who have been selected for our GNA representative teams for 2016. We would like to extend our gratitude to Athletes Foot Grafton for the goodie bags that each of our new rep players received.
