Following the presentation at the November Council meeting by McLaughlin Sports Consultancy and the finalisation of recommendations from the Competitions Review conducted by McLaughlin Sports Consultancy in 2017 the Netball NSW Board of Directors has reviewed and adopted the Competitions Framework.
The Competitions Framework (adopted by the Board of Netball NSW) is available to view here >> Competitions Framework
In 2019 Competition costs will remain in line with current competition costs. Competition costs for the ensuing year will be announced at the November Council Meeting each year.
Final rules are still to be finalised. The rules of each Competition will mostly remain the same as the current competition rules, with some minor revisions to bring them in line with the proposed format.
Finals Rules will be published no later than July 2018.
An announcement will be made no later than the end of April on the final format for 2019 Competitions.
We are currently liaising with Associations on hosting in 2019. We endeavour to announce 2019 Venues at the March 2018 Council Meeting.
The dates of the Competitions will remain the same, with the exception of State Masters, that will move from its current May date to a weekend in October.
All Associations will only be eligible to enter one team per Age Category.
Fast5 will be considered as a Division for State Masters.
State Masters, Social Division - if a team is not affiliated with an Association, how will they register and be covered by insurance?
Teams wishing to play in the Social Division of State Masters who are not affiliated with an Association are eligible to enter a team. Players will need to ensure they are registered with Netball NSW to play in the Competition. Registrations can be processed by contacting a Club or Association directly.
