A message from the SADNA President John Adams:
I refer to the communication issued by Netball SA on 18th March in regard to Winter 2020 competition.
The executive of the SADNA Board of Management have met and discussed this issue at length and have decided to postpone the start of Winter competition to 30th May 2020.
To allow for 14 rounds to be played it will be necessary to play on the June Long Weekend and during the July school holidays. Please see the revised programme (link).
Nominations for the Winter Competition will now close on Monday 27th April 2020.
If Netball SA push the date out beyond the 30th May SADNA will not go ahead with the Competition and the $40 per player will be refunded to clubs. SADNA Board of Management are of the view that a start date beyond the 30th May will not leave enough time to complete the competition and get ready for the Summer 20/21 season.
At this time nominations for Summer season will close on Monday 24th August for the competition to commence on the 12th October 2020.
With regards to Federal Government Health Department recommendations, I am in daily communication with Netball SA and as more information becomes available I will provide further updates.
