Senior Netball

I would like to make a special note to congratulate Team Diamond on being in Junior division 1 this season. This is a great achievement and something the girls should be very proud of. It has been a very long time since John XXIII has had a team represent the school in division 1. This grade is very competitive with a lot of very talented netballers. I'm sure the girls will be up for the challenge!

Well done to Year 8 Team Jade who is in Division 1 in the year 7/8 competition. Again this is a great achievement for the girls and the club.

Please be reminded that Perth Netball Association is being redeveloped, there will be limited food and no water fountains available. Please arrive early as it may take longer to get to your courts than it previously has. There is also a map in your fixture book and online, court numbers will be different to last year so please accustom yourself to the new court allocation map.

A reminder to parents and players that this season re-grading will be done after round 5. All teams will accumulate championship points from round one, with only teams that need to be re-graded moved to appropriate grades. All teams re-graded will move into their new division with 2 wins, 2 losses and a draw. Teams who stay in the same division will retain their points.

Reminder to all players that you need to ensure you are wearing the correct netball uniform, this includes the bloomers. Please remember to cut your nails short before you arrive at netball and have your hair up and out of your face.

All teams are to arrive 30 minutes prior to the commencement of their game to allow an adequate warm up. If your coach is playing or umpiring please start your warm up on your own until they arrive.

Finally I would like wish you all the best for the forthcoming netball season. I hope you all enjoy yourselves and continue to improve as the season goes on. Remember it's not whether you win or lose it's all about how you play the game. Sportsmanship is the key!!
