Saturday netball competition will start this week. Players are asked to bring a friend, new to Saturday netball, and have fun playing netball. Games will be organised in the divisions and the draw will be done on Saturday, as late entries are welcome.

Ladies who would like to play in the Open division at 9am will have their competition levy dropped, if they have a son or daughter playing in the Saturday competition, including NetSetGo. All players must be registered with Forbes Netball and Netball NSW. Registrations must be done on line, any difficulty contact Registrar Kerrie Priest. Kerrie will not be available this Saturday, but contact can be made before the day. Forms are available for players aged 10/11 years and 12/13 years who can nominate a friend to be placed into the same team.

Volunteers needed: Volunteers needed for Saturday competition. For coaching and managing junior teams and umpiring games. Help serving in the canteen is also needed, with the canteen profits, a huge fundraiser for the FNA. Help is also required for NetSetGo at 10am. Netball NSW set out a weekly coaching plan for NetSetGo, with coaching points, which makes the program very easy to deliver. Helpers will be given a copy of the program to follow.

Primary schools Gala Day: Was postponed, will now be held this Monday coming, March 20. Helpers will be needed to give the children an enjoyable experience of netball games and lots of fun and exercise for the day. Times for the day stay the same, whatever time can be given would be a great help. Starting 9.15am with the schools arriving at the courts, and finishes at 2.30pm.
