Coaching:                                

Grange Uniting Netball is a volunteer Club.  In order to keep Grange netball thriving it is important that we have parents and Community members volunteer their time to help provide children an affordable place to develop netball skills within their community. Often we are faced with the problem of having more children register than we have teams with coaches.

Please consider volunteering your time to be a coach for your team.

Our mission is to provide an environment where young netball players are guided and inspired to advance their skill level in a friendly inclusive social environment and reach their full potential both on and off the court.

No previous netball experience is necessary in order to serve as your teams coach; we will share our best practice drills with you and offer free trainings and clinics.  We offer support to our coaches and respond quickly whenever you need support guidance or coaching tips.  If you are a parent you will get to spend quality time with your child on the netball courts.  This can be a great time to bond with your child. 

Team Manager:                          

Each team must have a Team Manager.  Team Managers play a vital role in a team running efficiently.  An organised Team Manager is important to ensure the team runs smoothly throughout the season.

We like to ensure we spread the love and get each parent involved in their child’s match.  Duties that need help each week are scoring timing. Don’t worry this isn’t a daunting task we will supply a document to help you manage if you haven’t managed a team before.

Your success and your child’s enjoyment is our priority. Jump over to our coaches and managers page for more information (insert link).

Stall:                            

To assist in driving community interaction and to help keep our fees low Grange is committed to having a stall. When your team is allocated to Court 1 on the Beach St courts we ask if two members of the team donate a food item to sell. 

Some good ideas are:

12.30 game – cocktail sausages

pies or pasties…the choice is yours. We supply the pie warmer.

2.00pm game – something sweet for example cupcakes or cookies the choice is yours.

3.00pm game – any idea is a great idea the choice is yours.
