President’s Letter – May 2015

By May 10, 2015President's Letters

Time certainly flies! We’re well and truly past the halfway mark of the season. Hopefully our teams continue to put in strong performances leading into the finals and ensure good representation in the finals series for Hi-Lites.

Registration Forms
Registrations for the coming Spring season are now open. Hopefully you will have received registration forms from your team manager via email in recent days. If not, the registration forms are available via our website.

Registration forms must be submitted to your Team Manager on or before the 16th May. These will be on forwarded to the committee for processing.

Teams for the Spring season must be submitted to the WNA before the Winter season concludes, so you can understand that prompt attention to the registration forms is essential.

If you do not intend to continue for the Spring season, it is important that your team manager is advised by the 16th May.

Uniform
There have been a few enquiries regarding the uniform in recent weeks as the weather cools. Please be aware that the registered uniform for Hi-Lites is the blue/green dress; blue/black briefs; white socks and sports shoes. All players representing Hi-Lites MUST adhere to this uniform on the court on game day.

Please note that the Whitehorse Netball Association’s Bylaws state that “players not in correct uniform may incur a 1 point loss per player, per game”. It would be very disappointing for a team to potentially miss out on finals due to a penalty based on our players not being in correct uniform!

There has also been a noted trend for players wearing black socks. This is not correct Hi-Lites uniform. So please ensure white socks are worn on game day.

AGM
We are holding the Hi-Lites AGM on Wednesday 27th May at 7:30pm at the Vermont Primary School in the GP Room.

All positions are declared vacant. Nomination forms for anyone wishing to join the committee will be posted on the Hi-Lites website shortly.

So, if you have an interest in helping shape the direction of the club and are willing to commit some time and effort into the club’s operations, please feel free to discuss with a committee member to gain a greater understanding of what is involved in the roles. Nomination forms should be forwarded to the Secretary personally or via email to hilitesnetball@gmail.com

To ensure we have a quorum to conduct the AGM, we expect that each team be represented by at least one delegate.

We look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.

Umpires
Congratulations to some of our umpires who have been successful in attaining their umpiring badges in recent weeks. Nathan Begley attained his “A” Badge, whilst the following umpires have received their ‘C’ badge: Eden Whelan, Kate Ward, Leah Stremski and Matisse Nannes. This is a fantastic outcome these umpires and also for our club as it opens up further umpiring opportunities for other club members hopeful of joining the umpiring ranks.

Well done to all our umpires who continue to represent our club so admirably.

Good luck to all our teams in the lead up to the finals.

John Nannes
Hi-Lites President
