Presentation Day 2018
Our club presentation day was held on Sunday at Leanyer water park. A number of awards were presented for the contributions made to the club.
Northern Districts Coach Dave was presented an award for the guidance and support he has provided to the club in past and recent times. We’re very grateful to have such a fantastic coach on our side, Dave! Thanks for the wonderful contribution you’ve made.
Congratulations to Coach Claire Elliston on her Life Membership award. Claire has been instrumental in the establishment and ongoing management of the Northern Districts Eagles Netball Club. Her dedication and commitment to the Club, particularly the development of our junior players hasn’t gone unnoticed and today, the club acknowledged her efforts.
One of the greatest challenges with any sporting club is staying in a healthy financial position. Thanks to Ben Manfield for his efforts establishing effective systems to keep our finances on track. Working in collaboration with Tanya Hollamby, our Treasurer, they’ve assisted the club to stay in the black.
Thanks to junior coaches Ellen and Chloe who trained our Nettas, and coach Glen Ridley who lead our Under 11’s.
Northern Districts are very proud of the fact that every one of our Junior Teams made it into the Grand Finals in 2018. Well done coaches and players!
And a HUGE thank you to all our sponsors throughout the season. Thanks to the Airport Tavern, Fannie Bay Gourmet Meats and the Parap Bakery for supporting our presentation day.

New definitions of breaking, pivot and set (for a free pass and penalty pass)
The sanction if a free pass or penalty pass is taken in an incorrect position
When a player who is in the correct position may take the penalty pass
Umpires hold time to give a caution and new caution signal added
Change of ‘official warning’ to ‘warning’ throughout rules book

Rule Changes for 2016
Netball Australia, along with the eight state and territory Member Organisations, will implement the new Official Rules of Netball across all associated competitions and events from 1 January 2016. The new rule changes, released by the International Netball Federation (INF), will include the elimination of whistles following goals and obvious ball out of court, amendments to injury time and changes to the out of play rule.
The new rules were voted upon and approved by the International Netball Federation Congress, as part of the INF’s ‘Game Plan’ strategy, during the Netball World Cup SYDNEY 2015 in August.
“The new rules aim to meet the changing needs of the game, reflect the modern forward looking sport of netball, improve players’ enjoyment of the game, create consistency in the interpretation of the rules across all world regions, and make the game more attractive to spectators,” Netball Australia’s Head of Community Strategy and Netball Development Anne-Marie Phippard said.
As well as these changes, the rule book has been revamped to include a new definitions section, new technical specifications, including new court terminology, a clarification of interval times, a clarification of team officials, match officials and the terminology of the court and related areas. It is important to note that the rules remain unchanged in relation to a player’s responsibility. Players on the court are still expected to respond to rulings by the umpires and adjust their play accordingly. Similar requirements apply to team officials and bench players.
All players will be required to submit a DNA player nomination form if they intend to participate in the upcoming 2011 season. Forms should be completed and returned to Sue as soon as possible. Juniors can submit their forms at the sign on day this weekend. If you have any queries please speak to Sue or send the club an email.
Under 13 Blue Match Report
The girls had an excellent first half, nice movement of the ball through the centre by Karla, Kimmie and Krystal, with Lalani and Grace presenting well in the goal circle. Amy and Becci in defence worked very hard and managed some great intercepts. Changed things around in the last quarter (I thought it was half time!!), and unfortunately we could not capitalize on our opportunities. They held us scoreless in the final term and we went down by two goals. Thanks to Sophie for filling in and well done to Ingrid who had her very first game of netball. A very good all round performance.
Netta Game Report
The first ever game of netball for our girls, they tried hard, but struggled against a team that had obviously played before. They ran out of legs and got very tired at the end. Thanks to Lachlan and Lydia for filling in. Managed to score some goals and got to see how they all performed in different roles on the court. Hopefully practice will now see more relevant to all the girls.
Districts U13 Match Reports
Division 2 Blue
The girls played really well for their first game together and fought out a tough draw. Not having seen the girls play before I was very pleased with their attitude and intent. Best thing was that they listened to everything I said and tried to implement it on the court. Big tick goes to Kimmie who said she did not play centre, but then played the whole game there. Thanks go to Emily James who filled in on the night. Lots to look forward to.
Players and coach still getting used to each other. Differences between our game and the Nettas – we are taller, the goal posts are higher and we should know better???
Positives – play improved as the game went on, all players contributed and there was intent to get it right.
