For all students who sustain an injury that prevents them from training or playing we would appreciate written advice from your Doctor/Physiotherapist for the best course of action. Students are expected to still attend training and games to support their team if they are physically able.
For safety reasons students cannot trial, attend training or play games on Saturday’s unless they are in the correct uniform. Therefore casual shoes, socks, school shoes, bare feet are not permitted. Hair must be tied back and no jewellery is to be worn. Navy polyprops can be worn under the netball dress, bike shorts are not expected to show below the uniform. All players are provided with the OGHS Netball dress. Uniforms are issued from the Sports Department.
All teams may find that they will have umpiring duties either before or after their Saturday games. OGHS will endeavor to hold umpiring sessions for all teams. Your coaches will make up a roster for umpiring duties, if you are unable to make your scheduled umpiring duty then it is your responsibility to contact your team members to swap duty. Failure to turn up to duty incurrs the following penalties from the Dunedin Netball Centre:
