Dear Coach's and Manager's
Thank you for taking on these roles in 2019 in your respective teams.

Topics covered include the role of the committee including age group coordinators, role of the coach, role of the manager, player and volunteer safety, equipment, duty rosters, game day fixtures.
The dates and times for the coaches and managers meetings are:
In the event of any queries/problems relating to coaching and or managing please contact the following coordinators:

Only a player can call time. If a player is injured or unwell they must call ‘time’ to the umpire. Another player may call time for the injured/ill player.
The player who called time must leave the court within 30 seconds
The umpire, coach, manager, onlookers, parents CANNOT call time.
If a player leaves the court injured or ill without calling time the game continues. If this player cannot return to the court they may not be replaced, nor may the positions be changed, until the end of the quarter. This can be brutal if it is your GS or GA.
If a player steps off the court briefly (for instance to get a drink/remove debris) they may NOT return to the court until after the next goal and then only with permission of the umpire.
These rules are strictly enforced and it is important that managers and coaches plan with players what will happen if a player feels they cannot play on.
Also players may not be handed objects such as drink bottles, hair pins or anything else whilst on the court.
Reminder to all managers and people who score that positions must be entered on to score sheet for each quarter if a player takes the court. Otherwise points can be deducted from your team.
As always full names are already printed, any fill in's or new players must be added to the sheet, with their information listed at the bottom.
ANY TEAM INTENDING TO FORFEIT (MEANING YOU HAVE LESS THAN 5 OF YOUR ORIGINAL TEAM MEMBERS) MUST NOTIFY THE COURT SUPERVISOR ASAP WITH A MINIMUM 48HRS NOTICE TO ALLOW TIME FOR COMPLETION AND SUBMISSION ON PAPERWORK TO SACSNA AND OPPOSING TEAM.
Please ensure if you have to forfeit that teams give the supervisor 24 hours notice. Forfeiting on the day means loss of points and a fine payable by the forfeiting team. Three forfeits and you can be fined and banned from the remainder of the season.
Walkover fees are calculated on the total out of pocket cost per venue to the association. This fine will be paid by the team that fails to give notification
