A reminder all players should participate in both grading sessions (except those in self-select teams as outlined above). Players may be requested to attend addition sessions on Tuesday 12-14 depending on the size of the group to be graded. The Grading Convenor will provide information to those players required to attend additional grading sessions.

Questions or issues regarding attendance at sessions should be directed to the Grading Convenor –grading@thegapnetball.org.

Age Based Classifications – new arrangements for 2019

Due 4 February 

At the January general meeting it was accepted in some cases it is appropriate for a player to be graded into a higher age classification and the club supports the ability of the Grading Convenor and grading panel to make this determination.

A player will be considered for grading into a higher age classification:

  1. At the instigation of the Grading Convenor based on the advice of a grading panel; or
  2. At the request of a player and/or guardian in the case of a player under 18 years.

A request for consideration at a higher age classification must be received by the Registrar and Grading Convenor by registration close (4 February 2019). A request should be accompanied by reasons for the request including the player’s past playing experience or participation in representative teams. Requests should not be based solely on friendship groups.

Upon receipt of a request the Grading Convenor will provide instructions as to which grading sessions should be attended by the player.

The Grading Convenor and grading panel will make the final determination as to the grading of a player seeking to play at a higher age classification in accordance with TGNC grading policy.

Any questions should be directed to the Registrar – registrar@thegapnetball.org or Grading Convenor – grading@thegapnetball.org.

Self-select teams for 2019

Registration of self-select teams to continue

At the January general meeting it was confirmed TGNC will continue to accept the nomination of ‘self-select’ teams in the Open age classification. In 2019 the arrangements for self-select teams are as follows:

  1. Team nomination must be provided to the Registrar and Grading Convenor by registration close (4 February 2019)
  2. Nomination must include at least 7 registered players
  3. Nomination must include team coach and manager
  4.  Team members must be available for grading on the second nominated grading date (17 February) and Opens round robin (date TBD)

If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar – registrar@thegapnetball.org.

I never lost a game, I just ran out of time

I love the quote, “I never lost a game, I just ran out of time”.

As a mum of a mad keen netball fanatic, I know this feeling. However I think I am losing my game this week. Sounded like a great idea, start back at school after the long weekend. But I didn’t think through what has to be packed into 3 days of the week including registration for multiple clubs over multiple sports, changing shoes that I bought online as they were the wrong size, replace books as I ordered year 5 instead of Year 4 books!
Winning! #not!

If you are winning like me this week, this post is to help us all.
We can play this together.

What you need to do:

Step 1:
Register – Using this link, click and go the Mynetball website to register your child. There has been many links over the past few weeks, but I can assure you, this one works. Well at least it worked when I tested it an hour ago.

Step 2:
If you need help, email the awesome Cat, who manages the 500+ registrations for the club with ease.  registrar@thegapnetball.org
Or email me, Michelle, Communications Officer, web@thegapnetball.org

Step 3: 
Grading starts next week for 11 year + age groups.
Grading dates are: Saturday 9th February AND Sunday 17th February at Hilder Road State School. I will update the website with times for each year level.

What is grading I hear you say? Well that’s what I said a few years ago when I told we had to ‘grade’. It is a process to ensure players of skill and experience are playing within a team of same skill and experience.

We still have 91 hours left to get our game sorted!

Yours in netball
The most un-netball mum!
