We had a great turn out at the Club Netball trials on Saturday. Selectors were really impressed with the level of skill and commitment on display. The second QISSN trial is happening today in Clubs and once finalised the teams will be sent out in the coming days for player registrations to begin.
We are still looking for two or three players in the 7-8 years age division to play Monday evenings. If you would like to sign your daughter up, please email ClubNetball@rggs.qld.edu.au as soon as possible.
Please remember, RGGS teams will be starting in the week of 28 February. Coaches will contact players and parents regarding trainings days prior to this.
The Rockhampton Touch competition was impacted heavily with COVID absences last night for our first round, as many fields were bare due to forfeits. Luckily, our RGGS teams had plenty of girls available and some high quality games were played. It was great to see our RGGS Navy team with new players having their first run around at touch. They improved significantly during the game, and I can’t wait to see how far they progress during the season. Well done to all.
The girls started strong for their first round of Oztag this week. With a wide range of playing levels in each team and two very experienced coaches, the players will continue to grow each week and I can’t wait to see their improvements. The season ahead is looking promising with the skill levels that were on display.
Reminder regarding Parent Lounge processes
Just a friendly reminder to parents that event invitations need to be either accepted or declined in Parent Lounge. Invitations are only sent out for whole school activities or for activities that your daughter has signed up for.
If you do not approve participation in the activity, please select decline. Acceptance is required for all cocurricular activities that are off-site or are high risk, girls will not be allowed to participate unless approval has been received through Parent Lounge. Please do not leave invitations sitting in your invited list, we think you haven’t gotten to it yet and will continue to email reminders out for you to respond.
The parent information letter emailed out with the event invitation will have all the required information regarding starting dates and costs. Coaches will be in contact prior to training sessions starting with the required details for those. Please read these letters carefully.
Secondary students are emailed game times and training reminders on a weekly basis. They need to be checking emails daily and noting this information in their planner and/or forwarding these emails on to parents.
