Grad­ing looms

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

Se­nior net­ball teams will play their first spon­sor­ship games on May 10.

The spon­sor­ship com­pe­ti­tion re­sults will de­cide the grad­ing of all teams for the Bill Grays Me­mo­rial Cham­pi­onships later in the sea­son. Twenty pri­mary net­ball teams will con­tinue with their grad­ing games on 10 May.

Fun Ferns will start on May 9 at the Event Cen­tre. Reg­is­tra­tion forms are on the Toko­roa Net­ball Cen­tre web­site and a new Net­ball NZ ju­nior pro­gramme will be in­tro­duced. The Toko­roa Net­ball Cen­tre or­gan­is­ers have at­tended the in­tro­duc­tory ses­sions pro­vided by Net­ball NZ to en­able the cen­tre to move for­ward with an en­hanced skills based pro­gramme. The new Net­ball NZ Year 1 and Year 2 pro­gramme will be the same for all young­sters through­out the coun­try and will be re­named.

Or­gan­i­sa­tion is un­der­way for a Toko­roa Net­ball Cen­tre Un­der 17 Rep­re­sen­ta­tive net­ball team to at­tend the Na­tional Un­der 17 cham- pi­o­nships this year. Tri­als will be held soon by coach Taneta Riki.

Um­pires classes con­tinue on Mon­day nights. The only nights that they will not take place is if Magic are play­ing in Ro­torua or Hamil­ton.

All player um­pires are re­quired to com­plete the reg­is­tra­tion form on the Toko­roa Net­ball Cen­tre web­site to en­able a data­base to be pro­duced. Many um­pires are keen to gain an un­der­stand­ing of more tech­ni­cal rules and will be at­tend­ing classes for the Net­ball NZ Zone level of um­pir­ing rules.
