"What happens if I withdraw my registration prior to trials?"

"What happens if I withdraw my registration after the teams have been announced?"

If a player withdraws after teams are announced it is at the discretion of the Development Unit as to whether a $100 administration fee will be withheld. If the administration fee is withheld any remaining fees will be refunded into the players bank account.

"I can’t attend all 3 trials, can I still register?"

Players must endeavour to attend all trials. The first trial is compulsory for new players, we are unable to accept registrations for new players that cannot attend the first trial. If two consecutive trials are missed, players cannot be guaranteed a position at the club for that particular season. This policy is for existing members and “new player trial” players.

"Why do we fundraise?"

Each year when the committee sets the club budget and membership fees, we have in mind a certain target we like to keep the fees close to (allowing us to remain competitive with the other netball clubs). To prevent either having to set the fees above this target or having to decrease the service level the club will deliver, fundraising comes into play to cover the income shortfall.
