Scoring

As a parent of a Prahran representative player, it is your responsibility to participate in the scoring roster developed by the Team Manager.

Collecting the score sheet

  • The home team scorer collects the score sheet from the office (before the game when players are warming up).
  • Outside games: Both scorers must stand together and the home team scorer chooses which end they stand down.
  • Inside Games: The home team scorer fills out the score sheet and the away team scorer is responsible for the electronic scoreboard.

Filling out the score sheet

  • Ensure that all players names are included on the score sheet and mark their positions. If there are fill in players, ensure their name and date of birth is recorded on the back of the score sheet.
  • For every goal scored, an entry must be made against the player position who shot it (e.g. GA or GS) and cross off the score against the progressive goal count for the team.
  • Record the centre passes in the relevant section (e.g use the first letter of the teams to keep track).
  • At the end of each quarter, total up the scores for each individual player and the total for the quarter. Check this against the progressive goal count to ensure there are no discrepancies.

Returning the score sheet

  • At the end of the game total the end scores.
  • If there is a dispute or disagreement regarding the total scores at the end of the game; DO NOT SIGN THE SCORE SHEET. Bring it to the attention of the coach and umpires.
  • If there are no issues, then the scorers, umpires and a player from each team sign the score sheet.
  • The home team scorer will then return the score sheet to the office.

Tournaments

PNA attend between 4 - 8 netball tournaments during the year (depending on the age group and team). Tournaments are held on Sunday's and usually run from the morning (8:30am-9:00am) until mid to late afternoon depending on the number of games and finals. Tournaments consist of a round robin of 6-10 games of two 7-8 minute halves.

Please ensure that you come prepared with plenty of fluids, food and snacks. There are canteens and BBQ's available to purchase food on the day.  Full rep uniform is compulsory (dress, socks, training top/hoodie or jacket).

Tent Duty

We have two tents that we bring to most tournaments.  The tents are used as shelter and a home base for our teams during the day.  We ask that all parents rostered on to Tent Duty assist in the transportation, setting up and dismantling of the tents on tournament day.

  • Pick up tent(s) from the Orrong Romanis courts on the Saturday before the tournament.
  • The tents are quite large so a wagon or 4WD will be needed to transport them.
  • Collect tents and tent bags which contain the tent walls, pegs and tarp.
  • Arrive at the tournament early to help setup tents and to ensure a good location. Discuss with coaches where they would like the tents.
  • Help dismantle tents. If your daughter's team is not in finals you may dismantle and take a tent early but please ensure that at least one tent remains for the teams in finals.
  • Return tents the following Saturday or at the next training session.

All Prahran representative players are given a netball bag when they began. It is compulsory for all 13/U, 15/U and 17/U players to bring their bag to ALL games, training and tournaments.
