Notice to all parents, coaches and managers ...

We appreciate you have questions from time to time to do with netball and how the competition is run.  Please appreciate that we have over 200 primary teams in our competitions and answering phone calls and emails directly from parents, coaches and managers, takes up quite a bit of time which leaves us unable to get on with draws and other aspects of the competition.  All questions should be directed to your School Coordinator because they will be able to answer your questions as they have been given all the information.  Please refrain from directly contacting the Primary Games Administrator.

 

 

Attention Coaches, Managers and Umpires ... some important information:

  • Over Inflation of balls at the Year 4 to 6 competitions.  Please do not over inflate your balls.  The Sports Injury Clinic in the first 2 weeks are reporting badly broken figures in Primary and we think it is probably (a) not catching the ball properly and (b) the balls being pumped up too hard!  If coaches are unsure about how to catch a ball correctly there are some good videos online, for example this one, click here, although directed at older players the basic principals still apply.  Also when pumping up balls they shouldn’t be too hard.

 

  • Players defending with their arms out stretched at the side, again year 4 to Year 6 competitions.  I know we are only 2 games in but wandering around the courts we are seeing a lot of players trying to defend with their arms outstretched which is not allowed (obstruction) and the opposition players getting frustrated.  As a coach it is your job to teach the players to keep their arms down.  Certainly teach the players to defend the ball at 3 feet but not run and stop a player getting past by outstretching their arms.  A few of our umpires pick it up but a lot aren’t as they aren’t quite there yet with their development, so it would be useful to start teaching the players at an early age to not run with their arms outstretched.  Seeing it particularly at the centre pass and in the goal circles.
