Fees: These will remain at $115 per player and you will be invoiced once teams are confirmed.

Uniforms: These will be issued to the girls once the teams have been organised. Dresses go home with the girls every weekend and are cared for throughout the season. They will then be returned after their last game at the end of the season. We do not ask for a bond for the uniforms but trust that they will be well looked after. New uniforms are going to be purchased this season.

Netball Policies: Each student, parent and coach will be given a netball policy. These need to be read, signed and returned to Sheree McLeish in Room 32 by Thursday 29 March.

Coaches: We will be looking for coaches for the 2019 season. Please email your expression of interest to the committee at shereemcleish@silverdaleprimary.school.nz .

Committee: We are looking for a couple of people to join our committee in 2019. Meetings are once a month (or as needed) during the season. We have 2 or 3 fundraisers throughout the year which require some help.

Communication: We have a facebook page: Silverdale School Netball https://www.facebook.com/groups/1556898761277220/. This is a great source of information and help throughout the season. Draws can be found on the Netball Association websites linked above.
