2015 AGM – Updates and Outcomes
President’s Report – Big thank you to all committee and club members for another successful season; 5 teams made finals with 2 in the grand final and a best on ground in a losing team, three coaches successfully completed the introduction accreditation, Karen Jamieson was appointed TACT Assistant Coach for 2016 as well as successful implementation by Jo Esteban of the junior umpire mentoring program. Off the court we survived the first year of registrations under the new MyNetball system, with several impromptu Saturdays at the Carine & the Junior Movie Night & fundraising for Pink Day, as well as launching the new web site.
Fees – Final fees are yet to be set however it was agreed unanimously to keep fees as nearly as possible to 2015 plus $25 for the End of Year Presentation Function. This will enable us to book and plan now to celebrate the successes of 2016! Final fees hopefully will be set at Forward Planning once WDNA have provided their details.
Uniform Change – It was proposed we move to the A Line dress for three reasons; rebrand the club, cost per unit is much cheaper than the bodysuit dresses and provides an opportunity for the Juniors to have the same uniform as the Seniors. This change was voted in (15 to 3) and now the committee with source a quality supplier and present designs for vote at Forward Planning Meeting at the end of November.
Registrations/Nominating Teams – Although the club has had a successful playing season, it was acknowledged that the decision for all players to be graded did cost the club members. Four options were considered; all players to grade, allow teams of 7-8 players to nominate or players can request other players they would like to be graded with or all of the above. The vote was 11 for a combination to 4 for full grading (proxies abstained). All players/teams will be expected to participate in preseason/grading and the specific details of preseason/grading will be advised once registration fees and process has been finalised.
Other Business – Expressions of Interest – Coaching. The club is seek expressions of interest for coaches, apprentice coaches and coaching mentors for 2016. More information about coach development will be provided after Forward Planning.
