SUPER6 Club Night
SUPER6 is a pre-season fun competition that's held every other year. This year's event was due to take place on Sunday 7 April but has been rescheduled to Tuesday 28 May, which will supersede training.
The main aim of the event is for players to get to know other members of the club. Teams are made up with a mix of different ages to form a Junior and Senior competition. Played as a round robin, the top two teams from each competition play off in a grand final. Players are encouraged to dress up in their team colours and a prize is given to the best dressed team in each competition. Special rules apply such as 6 positions per team and rolling substitutions.
Sat 1 - Mon 3 June
Smarter Than Smoking Association Championships
The Smarter Than Smoking Association Championships are held annually to provide representative participation at all levels within an Association for players, coaches, officials, managers and administrators. The Championships provide the opportunity for the talent identification of players, coaches and umpires, the testing of umpires and an opportunity for Associations to test their pathway progressions against other Associations.
Don't forget to follow us for all things Hamersley!!

Communication with WDNA

We have two committee members that are our registered WDNA contacts and only these two people are permitted to talk to WDNA. On a Saturday, Managers may only approach the match office if they have an official WDNA card to present. THERE CAN BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THESE RULES.

WDNA Building Redevelopment

By Michael Chessells
Parent Member
Hamersley understands that members are interested in the current redevelopment by WDNA. The Club has conducted investigations of what the building works comprise and set out below is a synopsis for your information.
The project is to refurbish and rebuild the existing WDNA administration facility within the general footprint of the current building. The functions and form of the building will remain essentially unchanged although the building, fittings and fixtures will be modernised, and additional toilets will be provided. It is a valuable project that will significantly enhance the netball experience for WDNA members over many years and WDNA, the City of Wanneroo and the State Government should be congratulated for their support.
Building work of the type proposed would generally take in the order of 12 to 18 months, so this would have presented challenges to the design team as WDNA cannot vacate the site for this long. In order to allow continued operation of WDNA during building works, it was decided that the project be conducted in stages.
The building design drawings are set out below. The staged components are:
Administration building as the headquarters for WDNA
Amenities building with lots of ladies' toilets and a first aid room
Changerooms, commercial canteen and toilets to service the meeting hall
Refurbishment of the meeting hall
External hard and soft landscaping works to consolidate all new buildings
The administration and amenities buildings have commenced construction. It is expected that the canteen, hall and changeroom works will commence at the completion of the 2019 winter season. The initial construction fencing arrangement is in place, so what you see now is the likely extent of restricted site access for the coming season.
There will inevitably be some loss of amenity to users over the period, but the end result will be worth it. We hope the plans provided will help you understand the works as you watch it happen in 2019.

WDNA Photography

Please be aware of WDNA's photography and videography policy. Before taking any photos or videos on a Saturday, check the scorecard! If the opposition team does not give their consent for photography and videography there will be an alert sticker on the scorecard. Your efforts are appreciated.
We will be asking all the managers to organize game play photos of their teams for inclusion in our end of season Annual Awards presentation. However, for any of you budding photographers out there who'd like to start taking photos for your manager, we have a Photography Guideline page to help you take the perfect shot!
These photos are a great resource for the club and may also be used for promotional purposes on the website, social media and Hamlets.
PLEASE NOTE: Any photos taken using a SMARTBALL® are not admissible!

Thank you Hamersley

By Emma Johnson
Former Team 1 Player
A message to Lyn, Beth, Janine, Vickie, Alexis and everyone else who has coached me!
I’m just about to start my first New Zealand netball season and I’m so excited, but I’m also a bit nervous! My team has huge potential but as I’m so used to playing with Hamersley I’ve never felt so underprepared for a season!
It’s made me realise how lucky I was to be part of such an amazing club with the best coaches in my life! It started with Janine, she taught me manners, how to respect coaches and players and all my basic skills.
I have learnt so much from all of my coaches which I use in everyday life and netball. Everyone keeps commenting on my one handed shoulder pass! Isn’t that normal? Haha!!
Anyway, I just want to say thank you and that you are all doing an amazing job and I really miss you all.
Love EmJ
