Year 10 – 13 students can make up their own team of 10 players (no less) plus appoint a parent manager, in consultation with the Sports Office. Social teams play in the same competition and grades as other teams. It is the responsibility of these teams to find their own coach if they want one. The team registration forms can be collected from outside the Sports Office, but each player still needs to complete their own registration form online and pay the fee. One team form per team needs to be returned to the Sports Office. Teams will not be entered until ALL players have registered and paid.
We are always in need of coaches and managers. Coaching support is provided before and during the season. Please indicate your interest by filling out the Volunteers form found on the main page of the WGC sports website. Netball Wellington runs excellent coaching courses. See the details on their website www.netballwellington.co.nz and register early. Senior students who wish to coach should register their interest on the Netball Notice Board. There will be courses held at school for senior students wanting to coach.
Umpiring is compulsory for Collegiate 1 grade players and above. If you are a parent who is considering doing some umpiring, please see Netball Wellington’s website for information on their umpiring courses.
Cost: $135. This must be paid before trials. If students are selected in a team that ends up playing outdoors at Hataitai, $20 will be refunded.
Registration Forms must be completed, and payment made, Friday 10th Feb.
