From the President
Firstly let me thank you as players and our sponsors who committed to helping the Goolwa Netball Club for 2020. Your support as a player had ensured we were again looking to submit 13 teams in the 2020 season, the same number of teams as in 2019, well done.
Our sponsors for 2020 include
Goolwa Priceline Pharmacy
Please support our local businesses at this time and especially our sponsors. We are looking to continue to work and support our sponsors still throughout the year.
What's happening with netball in 2020?
What we do know is that we are working with Great Southern Netball Association and our role is to communicate with you as often as we can about what we know.
We know that we cannot train as a club or play games until it is deemed by our Government safe to do so. Stopping the spread of COVID-19 in our community is our first priority and to keep our coaches, players and committee safe, which is why we cancelled training before we were officially advised to. We especially want our club and community to continue to be free from this virus as we do want it to be eradicated from Australia and the rest of the world.
When will we start netball training and when will games be played again?
Under the GSNA constitution the netball follows the Great Southern Football League. The earliest training can begin is the 1st June with the first game planned for the 20th June with a nine game season. Of course things may change either way between now and then.
I have paid my money for a full season. Do I get a part refund?
The GSNA are working with Netball SA to review the fees for 2020. As you may be aware, over 50 percent of netball fees you pay goes to Netball SA and GSNA for player insurance and administration costs in running our competition. As soon as we hear from GSNA, we will let you know.
What grade will our clubs teams be in?
GSNA will make a final decision of which grades all clubs will compete in from the 12th May.
As we have submitted our grade preferences to GSNA, if you know now you won't be playing in season 2020, please let us know as soon as possible. This is important for us in our planning. On the other side if you know of anyone who wants to play 9 games of netball plus hopefully finals, please let us know.
There it is as we know it. Please feel free to contact us at anytime if you have any more questions.
Remember wash your hands as often as you can and be kind to yourself and those you meet as it is a tough time for us all.
Goolwa Netball Club.
