2018 Winter Grading - Important Information
This year LYVNA are trialing a slightly modified grading system. Clubs, players, coaches, umpires and parents must read the following information to ensure a smooth first day.

  1. There are 3 weeks of grading.
  2. Teams will play 2 rounds each week (unless they have a bye).
  3. Grading games will consist of 2 halves.
  4. Players, coaches and parents must check the website to make sure the know which courts and times their teams are playing.
  5. After the conclusion of the first round, there will only be 2 minutes until the start of the second round so each team must quickly move to the court of their second game.
  6. Umpires will stay on the same court for both rounds. This may mean an umpire is umpiring their own club for the second game.
  7. Score sheets for both rounds will be handed out on the same clipboard.
  8. The score sheets are to remain on the court until the end of round 2. The umpires will return the score sheets. Scorers and captains must quickly sign the score sheets at the end of the each round. The score sheets will still show four quarters so please ignore the third and fourth quarters.
  9. A few teams may have a large gap between their rounds or they may play their round 2 game before their round 1.  This is unavoidable due to limitations with court rostering and crossover of time slots within a grade.
  10. Teams will carry their points from the grading games into the main season. During grading teams will be awarded 2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw and 2 points for a bye.
  11. There is no grading for 9U sections so they will play “normal” four quarter games.
  12. Clubs should complete the “Team/Squad Setup (Season)” on MyNetball prior to round 1 so the players names are printed on the score sheets.
