out a few issues raised by ourselves! It also helps to put names to faces.

Let’s discuss coaching issues like double defending, to strategise or not to strategise etc.

ACE Netball - PRNA Playing Times & Team Gradings

Hi everyone,
Please find playing times for the first 5 rounds of PRNA 2017 season below. Please note that these times are currently only confirmed for the FIRST 5 ROUNDS of the season. After Round 5, there may be changes to these playing times.
In the last few weeks, PRNA have had some damage to courts 16-20 by an external contractor completing the carpark. The damage has made these 5 courts unusable and has placed the Association in a position where they do not have enough courts to run the rounds as per previous years. A lot of discussion has gone into possible solutions to accommodate all players. 

With these 5 courts unable to be used, the following changes have been made:
  1. Under 10’s – different playing times for different divisions.
  2. Junior 4 (U11’s) – different playing times for different grades in this division.
  3. Junior 3 (U12’s) – different playing times for different grades in this division.
  4. Junior 2 (U13’s) – different playing times for different grades in this division.
  5. Junior 1 (U14’s) – different playing times for different grades in this division.
  6. Inters 2 – Playing on a Monday night until the courts are fixed.
Repairs to these courts are to start shortly and should be finished by 14th of May. After this time, PRNA have advised that Inters 2 will move back to playing on Saturdays and there may be some change to playing times for all divisions.
The PRNA Grading Committee met last weekend to finalise all team gradings submitted by each club. We are pleased that most of the ACE teams have been placed in line with our gradings. A couple of changes have been made for reasons which will be explained below:
  1. Junior 1:
    • Only 2 teams were nominated in Junior 1A from all clubs in the Association (1x ACE Devils, 1x Blues Flinders). The PRNA Grading Committee have placed these 2 teams into the Inters 3 as they felt the 2x Jnr 1A teams would be competitive with the Inters 3 nominated teams.
    • With the 2x Junior 1A teams being placed into Inters 3, the remaining teams have been placed into 2 divisions – A and B. There will be no C grade in this division.
  2. Inters:
    • Inters 1: Due to numbers of nominated teams, Inters 1 has been combined with Open Div 3 and will play on Monday night. The division will be split for finals.
    • Inters 3: As explained above, includes Junior 4A nominated teams.
  3. Open Divisions:
    • Divs 1 and 2: Due to the number of nominated teams, Div 1 and 2 have been combined. The division will be split into Div 1 and Div 2 at the end of the season for finals.
    • Div 3: As explained above, this division include Inters 1 nominated teams. The division will be split into Div 3 and Inters 1 at the end of the season for finals.
    • Div 7: This division is a “Mature Ladies” division.

2017  Playing  Times -  First 5 rounds.

The draw for Monday night teams (1st 5 rounds only) has been placed on the PRNA website:

The draw for Saturdays (1st 5 rounds) will be released shortly, please keep an eye on PRNA website.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions

Kind Regards,
