RI enters a maximum of six Year 7 and six Year 8 girls netball teams in the Tuesday night winter competition at Auckland Netball St Johns venue.
Players are expected to commit to the entire season including at least one practice per week at a time agreed with their coach.
Trials to select teams are held early in March, times to be published in daily notices.
Winter competitions commence in the second week of Term 2 running through to late August with 13 games in total. For more details see the Auckland netball website www.aucklandnetball.co.nz/netball/year-6-8/
The A and B teams from each year also compete in the Central Zones netball competition at Auckland Netball St Johns venue in early August. A Year 7 and a Year 8 boys' team is formed especially for this competition.
Summer competitions are run by Auckland Netball at St Johns and Windmill Rd in late Term 3/early Term 4 and also in Term 1. RI does not organise teams for these competitions or provide gear for teams who do choose to register. See www.aucklandnetball.co.nz/netball
A single netball registration fee of $80 is payable at the beginning of the season that covers registration of teams, loan of netball uniform and umpires. Parents and Caregivers are responsible for transport to and from the courts at St Johns every Tuesday afternoon. Team members will be issued with an invoice/permission slip by Mrs Herbert, Neball Co-ordinator.
Coaching and Team Management
Teams are coached and managed by volunteers so we rely heavily upon support from parents and friends to ensure that our teams can be registered to play. Practices are organised by the coach and can be either before or after school.
There is an opportunity during the registration process to indicate any offers of assistance.
