NET SET GO
The Iona Club encourages boys and girls to play netball.
Players aged 6 years old (Kindergarten) and 7 years old (Year 1) are invited to join the NET program. This is a fun 10-week introduction to Netball commencing in term 2. Your player will participate in fun games and activities to introduce them to fundamental skills used in netball. Players register directly with Hastings Valley Netball Association (HVNA) for this program.
The SET GO program is an introduction to netball for players aged 8 and 9 years old with modified rules. It focuses on refining fundamental motor skills and introducing modified netball matches. During their second year of SET (return SET) the focus is on developing netball specific skills through modified netball matches.
Visit the HVNA website for more information.
Grading for players 10 year and above will be held on the 11th February from 3.30 – 5pm. Ione netball committee members will meet players at the Kiss and Drop area outside the sport hall.
Please bring afternoon tea, a big drink and comfortable clothes and runners to change into.
Parents are not permitted at grading and can collect players from Kiss and Drop at 5pm.
To review our grading policy please view it here.
Training times will be dependent on coach and player availability and will be confirmed once teams have been formed.
Each team will be required to nominate a Parent Team Manager to be the main contact and organiser for their team. This parent will be responsible for liaising with their team coach/coaches and may need to provide support during training and on game days.
All games are played on a Saturday morning at Macquarie Park. Game times will mostly likely be the same each week and cannot be confirmed until the draw and grading is completed by Hastings Valley Netball Association which occurs after all clubs have completed the registration process and entered their teams.
The netball season is due to begin 20 March 2021, dependent upon COVID restrictions and the resurfacing of the netball courts at Macquarie Park.
Iona Netball Club uniforms will be available for sale from the St Columba Anglican School Uniform Shop. Plain white playing socks will also form part of our uniform. Please feel free to sell netball uniforms that your player has outgrown on the Iona Sports Club Buy/Swap/Sell.
CANTEEN AND FUNDRAISING
As a club, we will be called upon to do canteen duty. This requires us to set up and pack down the courts and run the canteen. It usually occurs once or twice a season. Parents will be asked to assist with this. Additionally, Iona Netball Club will be provided with a fundraising day which parents will be called upon to provide treats for sale, donate raffle items or staff the stall on a single Saturday. Team managers will be asked to help organise their teams for these days.
