2016 Season Launch

We are back again launching round one of Brisbane Netball Winter 2016 competition. Good luck to everyone taking the court tomorrow and on Wednesday night. We have a record 40 teams and 360 players.

We have an especially keen eye on KL Red, defending Premier Division champions, with a number of new faces in the squad – Kat Taylor, Kate Lister, Ainsley Carroll, and Jessica Matthews.

Kedron are also defending champions in the Wednesday night Premier Division – KL Magenta, with an almost unchanged line up for the past two seasons.

For all our Wednesday players, the Wednesday Night draw will be available soon.

Uniforms

We have uniforms to dispatch tomorrow [Saturday], so if you have ordered and haven’t picked up, come on down and look out for the Kedron Lions Den (under a marquee) up near the top courts (1-4) from around 10am.

Help I am new!

Don’t worry. Come to the shade from around 10am or look for one of the ‘Crew’ from Kedron Lions. You can’t miss the red shirt. We are here to help. If you need to call someone for help, ring 0478 015 332.

Make sure you know your team and when and where you are playing by looking at the draw. Consult the map of Bradbury Park for your court number.

If you are lucky enough to be scoring or timing, here is a Tip Sheet you may want to familiarise yourself with. Note you are able to time with a smartphone if it is well charged, is in flight mode, and uses a suitable app which sets an alarm at the interval.

Oh yeah…and here are the rules of netball. Watch the videos on the international rule changes coming into affect this season. Or take a look at the flyer that highlights the major changes

The first few weeks

The first three weeks are grading weeks. So while BNA has done their best to align teams’ capabilities with similar teams, there is some room to move in these first few weeks. A full season draw will be released after this grading period.

Behaviour

A reminder that Kedron Lions promotes positive behaviour in and around the courts. Remember also that there are a lot of umpires that are young and giving it a red hot go. They are not going to get it right every time and we always need to support them, particularly as we transition to the new rules.

Kedorn Lions has zero tolerance to bad behaviour.

All players, coaches, officials, and spectators must follow Netball Australia’s Code of Behaviour when attending any Kedron Lions Netball event.

Please familiarise yourself with these policies but most of all, have lots of fun next week and throughout the season.
