Netball Resources for Clubs and School Administrators
Netball New Zealand launched NetballShare, a project that provides 26 free editable resources to make it easier and more efficient for the volunteers administering Netball. The resources include a Coach and Managers Handbook, a Guide on Leading a Coach Information Session, a Game Day Checklist, a Year Planner, and more. An advisory group of 34 people from clubs, schools, and Centres across New Zealand contributed documents and feedback to the project.
A suite of new resources for club and school administrators will make life much easier for the hard-working volunteers that make Netball happen throughout the country.
The resource project, called NetballShare, launched on the Netball New Zealand education platform Sport Tutor with 26 free editable and commonly used documents.
"The overall goal of NetballShare is simple - to create tools that make it easier and more efficient for our people to administer Netball," said Jenna Murie, Volunteer Advocate at Netball New Zealand.
"With time being one of the key barriers to volunteering, and in a season that will no doubt be affected by Covid-19, having these resources handy for each club and school to pick up and use will be so helpful."
There is a wide range of resources that have been included - for example, a Coach and Managers Handbook, a guide on Leading a Coach Information Session, the Game Day Checklist, some Parent Engagement Scenarios, a Year Planner and a Thank you Letter.
"We're keen to get feedback as the season progresses on which resources are useful, and if others are required we will look to create them for future seasons. Of course if your school or club is needing something, it's highly likely others will find it useful too. The more we can assist each other, the stronger our Netball community will be," said Murie.
