Player Tracker

Registered Sharks playing up

It is the responsibility of managers and coaches to ensure this process is applied. Sharks will be fined in cases of non-compliance, and other teams could also be seriously disadvantaged. 

Registered players are allowed to play up any grade or division but are not allowed to play down a grade or division.

Players can play above their grade on four occasions - on the fifth occasion they are automatically moved to the team they are playing in on that fifth game. 

Sharks policy is that players can play up on three occasions during the normal season only. During the finals season a fourth game can be played.

Step 1: Check the player tracker

Check the player tracker by following the link below. All registered players are recorded on the spreadsheet in first name order, and by scrolling across the page you can see whether the player has played up on any previous occasion. If they have already played up on three or more occasions, unless the game is during the finals series the player is not available and another replacement player must be found.  

If the player has not already played three or more games, or it is the finals series, the player is available. You must complete the table for the game that the player will be playing. You do not need to save the changes you have made, that will happen automatically. 

Step 2: Register the player movement at CNA control on game night

The player will need to complete the relevant form at CNA control on game night at least 20 minutes before the start of the game. They will be given a slip which must then be handed to the umpires of the relevant game before the game commences.  

Unregistered players: casual games

It is the responsibility of managers and coaches to ensure this process is applied. Sharks will be fined in cases of non-compliance, and other teams could also be seriously disadvantaged.

 

Unregistered players are allowed to play three games, and must formally register through Netball Connect prior to playing their fourth game. The fourth game played will determine which team they are registered in. 

Step 1: Check the player tracker

All players that have played for Sharks this season are recorded on the player tracker. Registered players are at the top, and unregistered players at the bottom. 

If the player is not already recorded in the player tracker, and does not wish to register for the remainder of the season, then they must be added to the player tracker as an unregistered player. If they have already played three games, they must register for the remainder of the season (see further details below). 

The details of each game played by the unregistered player (including date and team/division played for) must be recorded on the player tracker. 

Step 2: Register the player movement at CNA control on game night and pay the $20 casual fee

The player will need to complete the relevant form at CNA control on game night at least 20 minutes before the start of the game and pay the casual game fee. They will be given a slip which must then be handed to the umpires of the relevant game before the game commences.  

Late player registration

It is the responsibility of managers and coaches to ensure this process is applied. Sharks will be fined in cases of non-compliance, and other teams could also be seriously disadvantaged.

 

Unregistered players are allowed to play three casual games, but must formally register through Netball Connect thereafter. This same process applies to players that wish to join the club late in the season (regardless of whether they have played casual games or not).  

Step 1: Check the player movement register

If the player has played three games already, the fourth game must be played for the team they will be playing in for the remainder of the season. Make sure you have checked the player tracker.

Step 2: Complete the CNA player registration form 

At least 48 hours before the game, the CNA player registration form (link below) must be completed  and emailed to registrar@sharksnetballclub.com.au. CNA will then provide us with a discount code to be applied when registering in Netball Connect, to reflect the fewer games that the player will play during the season. Our club Registrar will provide that code to the player and team manager upon receipt.

Step 3: Register in Netball Connect

The player must register through Netball Connect at least 24 hours prior to the start of the game. Our how to guide is here. Use the discount code provided by our Registrar to reduce the amount payable. 

 

Please note that payment plans through Sharks Netball, and instalment plans through Netball Connect are not available for late player registrations unless in exceptional circumstances and authorised by the Club Registrar.  Where the player is entitled to a reduction of the Sharks Netball Club proportion of registration fees (for example an existing management committee member) then they will be reimbursed directly by Sharks Netball. 

Step 4: Confirm Netball Connect registration 

Once the player is confirmed as registered through Netball Connect, they must email registrar@sharksnetballclub.com.au with their Netball Connect ID number. The Registrar will then email CNA to confirm the registration process is complete and the player can take the court before the game.
