2018 & 2019 - IMPORTANT DATES

Posted: 24-Oct-2018 by Netball

Dear MANC families,

There is a lot of information contained in this email.  Please read it all - we have some important changes for the 2019 season.

2018 SEASON - IMPORTANT DATES (as per dates on the website under "NEWS")

Training until Tuesday 13 November

Training will continue for ALL teams regardless of placement in finals.  We have some highly credentialed external coaches lined up to run specialist sessions in the lead up to selections.  If your child doesn't have a full team at training due to camps etc, they should still attend - specialist sessions will be run in age groups. As per season dates, there is NO training on Tuesday 6 November, Cup Day.

First week in November - 2019 Registrations

2019 Junior Registrations will open in the first week of November and will remain open for 12 days.


Tuesday 20 November

Presentation Night for the WHOLE Club.  Only teams in finals will train on this night, from 5.15 to 6.15.  There will be no Pups, U9 or U11 training on this night, so that players can all attend the Presentation Night.

Time and location - 6.15 to 7.45pm at Duncan Mackinnon Social Room (upstairs).


Tuesday 27 November

Selections - age groups and times TBA.  This will be confirmed once registrations are open.


Tuesday 4 December

Selections - age groups and times TBA.  This will be confirmed once registrations are open.


Friday 25 January, 2019

Team lists will be released


2019 - NEW ASSOCIATION / VENUE FOR YEARS 3 TO 5 Due to PNA shifting games to a Friday night, in 2019 our U9 (Set) and U10 (Go) and U11 teams will all play in the Kingston & District Netball Association (KDNA).

Matches are outdoor on a Saturday morning in Warrigal Rd Oakleigh South, 4.5km from Duncan Mackinnon Reserve.

KDNA operates quite differently to PNA and CDNA - more information will be provided directly to the relevant age groups after registration.


2019 - NEW REGISTRATION PROCESS - TWO PARTS In 2019, ALL players will have to register and pay for VNA (Vic Netball Assoc) via the MyNetball Portal.  Each player will be sent a link to create a MyNetball account AFTER 2019 MANC Registration has been completed.  We understand that having to register on 2 sites is not ideal, but we have no choice as Netball Australia have mandated this across the country.  A player will not be allocated to a team and will not be able to take the court unless the VNA Membership has been completed and paid for by 20 December 2018.

There is a lot of information on the Registration pages and more can be found on our website, but in summary:


This is for Pups, U9, U11, U13, U15 and U17 players who play on Saturdays.

Senior Registrations for U25 and all mid-week teams will open in the first week of December.


There are NO selections for Pups, U9 or U11 (years 2 to 5).  Coaches and Head Coach will determine teams for these age groups Selections for U13 (years 6 & 7), U15 (years 8 & 9) will be on one or BOTH of these dates, TBA: Tues 27 November, Tues 4 December Selections for U17 (years 10 & 11) will take place in February in the first weeks of training prior to matches starting.


Team placement is determined by many factors including performance at selections (where relevant), coach input (through coach assessments), player positional preferences, team positional requirements.

Team placement is NOT determined by social friends, rosters, family members, training times, previous season’s team, nor length of time with the Club.

Where more than one team is placed in the same division, teams are graded as evenly as possible.  Where an Association places a team in a division different to that which the Club has requested, team composition may be changed if allowed in the by-laws.


A team can not start the season without a Team Coordinator.  Please volunteer for this vital (but not time consuming) role during registration.


Prior to completing registration, please ensure you are familiar with the refund policy as stated on the registration form:

If a player is withdrawn after the team lists are published, the Club will not provide a refund.

An email will be sent once registrations are open.  We are always happy to welcome new Jewish netballers to the Club - please feel free to pass this email on to family and/or friends as appropriate.
