2017 Netball Alberta Annual General Meeting

The Netball Alberta AGM is being held on November 25 at 4:00 pm in the gym at Southland Leisure Centre. All members are welcome and encouraged to attend and have your voice heard. You will hear reports and information about the organization and how it is run. You will also vote on the board positions. This event is important to our netball community and can give you great insight into the work involved in making this league run and organization grow.

We do have a few Board and General Volunteer roles vacant right now, and we would love to hear from you if you think you have the time, skills and experience suited to one of the following roles:

Board Position - Marketing Director: requires relevant qualification and/or experience in the field of marketing. Experience marketing in the sports industry or a not-for-profit environment is highly desirable.

Non-Board Position -Merchandise Coordinator: requires a commitment to organize and sell merchandise on the first night of league, at tournaments, and will require delivering orders to league.

Please email Julie Arnold at president@netballalberta.com if you would like to apply for one of these positions.

Attention: Subs must be logged on scoresheets or the game will be forfeit

It has come to our attention that subs are not being recorded on the scoresheets for all league games. This makes it impossible to monitor the number of times a person subs through the year, to uphold our sub rules.

It is imperative that Team Managers, or the person who is subbing for the team, records the substitute player on the scoresheet by the end of the each game.

Moving forward, if it is discovered that a team has played with a sub that has not been recorded on the scoresheet by the end of the game (regardless if they just play a quarter, or a full game), the game will be forfeit.

We suggest Team Managers have the sub visit the officials bench themselves to record their name on the scoresheet before they take the court or during an interval. Please keep in mind, though, that it is the responsibility of the Team Manager and team to be sure that any subs are recorded.

If unrecorded subs continue to be a problem, the next step will be to require all teams fill out a team list before every league game and hand the team list into the officials bench. We ask that Team Managers and players be diligent in their cooperation in upholding our sub rules so we can avoid this additional team list requirement.

Here is the official sub rule, as a reminder:

League Sub Rules

A registered player assigned to a team can sub in four games between September and December and four games between January and March. No more than 8 games total for the season. Senior B may sub for Senior A but not Senior A for Senior B.

A casual player must be registered in SI Play and acknowledged by their league coordinator before subbing in the league. These players are able to sub in up to three games for each of the same periods mentioned above, for a drop in fee of $10 per game. If they would like to play in more games than that, they must pay a pro-rated registration fee for the remainder of the year.
