Guidelines for Players

  • Players are representing the school and therefore the appropriate school rules apply.  Behaviour at the venue must be exemplary at all times; 
  • Players can only play in the team they are registered in.  While players may be chosen to play in a SGHS team graded above them, this is at the team coach’s discretion.  The Invercargill Netball Centre issue fines for players playing in inappropriate teams;
  • Players must arrive a minimum of 30 minutes before start time to appropriately warm up with the team;
  • No jewellery is allowed and cannot be taped. Hair must be pulled back off the face;
  • Only the coach or manager will complete the playing score card before play starts;
  • If a player is unable to make practice or a game, she must advise her coach (not another team member) in enough time to allow for possible substitutes for that team. If a player does not attend practice without reason she is not guaranteed to play;
  • If a player misses 3 practices or games without notifying the coach the player will be withdrawn from the team without a refund. All coaches will receive an attendance sheet;
  • Please arrange appointments outside practice times;
  • Correct training gear must be worn for practice (proper gym shoes and shorts/track pants and top). School shoes, socks, bare feet and school uniform are inappropriate to be training in. 


All teams in Open grade are required to umpire. If teams fail to provide umpires, an immediate fine of $100 per umpire per game is issued by the Invercargill Netball Centre

It is vital that all teams set up an umpiring roster at the beginning of the season. Please ensure that players do their umpiring duty.  All Fines are payable by the team, not the school.
