HOW TO REGISTER YOUR TEAM AND PLAYERS

Step 1 - Register your team in Netball Connect

All team nominations are processed via Netball Connect either via the Netball Connect App on your phone or via this link on a computer.  Step-by-step instructions can be found here.

Nominations Close 19th September 2021 - Cost $0.00



Step 2 - Complete 2021-22 Summer Night Season Independent Team Nomination Form

Each team nominating to play in our 2021-22 SNS must provide additional information regarding their team to enable an initial paper grading of the team to be completed.  This information is provided via 2021-22 Summer Night Season Independent Team Nomination Form document which can be accessed here and must be submitted by 17th September 2021. When completing this form please provide detailed, accurate information regarding players ages, experience and skill level so the best grading outcome can be achieved.  Grading is conducted over 3 weeks - teams do not earn points during this period.

Umpire

Independent teams who register a team or teams to play in the Summer Night Season Competition must provide at least one (1) umpire per team who is capable and qualified to umpire at the same level as the team nominated for competition games each week during the season. 

Umpire name, contact number and email address and National badge level needs to be supplied via the 2021-22 Summer Night Season Independent Team Nomination Form as well.

Clashes can occur if the umpire nominated also plays in the team nominated. Teams can work with the BNA Umpire Convenor to overcome these situations and allow teams to umpire and play at different times each week throughout the season. Email umpiring@brisbanenetball.org.au for more details. 

Teams who cannot supply a suitable can pay BNA a fee of $455.00 to supply an umpire for the entire season. Should you wish to avail yourself of this service, please complete the online Pool Umpire Request Form.   Payment of  the fee of $455.00 is required  at time of completion. All requests must be made by 19th September, 2021

NB:  If the BNA Umpire Management Committee deems an umpire is incapable or unsuitable to successfully umpire at a certain competition level, they will discuss further with the team and umpire to negotiate moving that umpire to a more suitable level.

STEP 3 - Get Players to Register Individually in Netball Connect

All Independent players need to register and pay their registration fees via Netball Connect App on their phone or via this link on a computer.  Step-by-step instructions can be found here.

All teams must have at least 7 players registered in Netball Connect by 19th September 2021.  

Once all players have registered, BNA will assign the players to your team.  Please ensure you advise BNA of any late player registrations throughout the season at least 24 hours before their first game so these players can also be attached to your team.  


NB:  For our 2020-21 Summer Night Season, fill in players are NOT permitted.  Only fully registered team members to BNA in Netball Connect are permitted to participate in any game so it is important that you have sufficient team members to cover player absences -  particularly around the holiday period .  Additional players can register to your team throughout the season.

Uniforms

All players must wear the team uniform as specified 2021-22 Summer Night Season Independent Team Nomination Form.  Players are allowed to wear shorts/tights/T-shirts/singlets provided that they are all the same style/length/colour. 

For the safety of all players, zips of any size or length on uniforms (whether functional or cosmetic) will not be permitted to be worn.

We ask that you please nominate a uniform combination other then black tights/shorts and black singlets/shirts. We suggest black bottoms with a brightly coloured singlet/shirt to help differentiate your team from your opposition. 


Balls and Bibs

All teams must supply their own ball and bibs for fixtures.
