Grading 2020 Information

Important changes to grading for Wednesday 12th February: Grading Venue: PCYC Waitara.

Due to the rain that is predicted for Wednesday, we have decided to move our Kissing Point grading indoors. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find indoor netball venues, so the only booking we have been able to obtain is for one court at the PCYC at Waitara. This means that we have to change our grading times for Wednesday’s session only. We are expecting that all other sessions will go ahead as per the original schedule.

Our new times for Wednesday are as follows:

Under 9s – no grading this Wednesday. We will see the Under 9’s on Monday 17th. And if we need to call another session we will let you know as soon as we can.

Under 10s: 3:45-5:15

Under 11s: 5:00-6:15

Under 12s: 6:00 – 7:30

We realise that these changes will be inconvenient for some people – they’re inconvenient for us too! Our main aim is to have an opportunity to grade all our players fairly before the KNA deadline for team lists. Please wear appropriate clothing for playing netball – club uniforms aren’t necessary. Please bring water to drink, and please arrive promptly to ensure that all players have maximum court time for grading.

 

All Junior (9-17 yrs) players playing in the 9yrs – Cadet age groups must attend grading sessions to provide the best possible opportunity to place players in appropriate teams. All players are to attend the grading session for their age group, which is the age turned in 2020.If you are unable to attend either session or if any Cadet-aged players are planning on playing in an Opens team please please advise Tina Tritton (KP Registrar) or Katrina Ward / Beth Stewart (KP Grading Conveners) as soon as possible.

Please remember when you register anyone aged Under 9s to Cadets, to state their preferred playing positions (don’t just auto-fill the form from last year) because we will place them in those positions for grading purposes.

If KP graders require any players to attend a different session they will be advised.

All players should attend both grading sessions to provide the best possible opportunity to place players in appropriate teams. All grading will be at Canoon Rd courts.
