UMPIRES - Each team MUST supply a REGISTERED umpire and scorer for each game.

REGISTERED PLAYERS - Players may only register for one team within the same grade.
Any new players must be registered by 1.00pm each game day to ensure they can be loaded to the system and are available for selection in the game day app. New Registrations after this on each game day will be deemed unregistered until the following week.

Teams may have unlimited registrations but may only select up to 12 players for each game.
If teams play unregistered players, your game will result in forfeiture of competition points.
GAME DAY TEAM LIST SUBMISSION & SCORING
This year, we will be using Live Scoring via the Netball Taranaki App to submit team lists and to score the games.
Team contacts must submit a final team list of up to 12 players to participate in each game, prior to the start of the game.
Failure to submit a team list in the app BEFORE your game will result in forfeiture of competition points.
Each team must supply one scorer, who will keep score using the scoring app. These designated persons stand in line with the centre circle together on the side line of the court.
Your scorer code can be found at the bottom of the Team Builder box where your players are registered OR you can collect the scorer code at the Tower prior to your first game.
BEFORE submitting the final scoring result, please enter YOUR UMPIRE’S FULL NAME in the comment box.
Failure to supply a scorer means your team must accept the score as presented by the opposing team. If neither team provides a scorer, no competition points will be awarded to either team.
DUTY - Each Team will be responsible to get their own goal/post pads etc, if playing first round and return them if playing last round, please allow time to do this prior to playing or after game also please remove any rubbish and leave courts clean and tidy. Teams not complying with this will be given one warning and if still not compliant, forfeit their games.
RULES - Governing of the game and conduct will be those applied by Netball Taranaki and Netball New Zealand.
