Suva netball starts

THE Suva Netball Association is eagerly anticipating a successful start to the season tomorrow.

After successfully conducting their third umpires and bench officials clinic on Wednesday, the NewWorld-sponsored association is confident of a grand season opening knockout at the National Netball Centre.

A statement from the association said the clinics were being run to not only increase the number of umpires and bench officials but to also raise the standard of both the officials and conduct of the game.

"This year all teams and clubs are encouraged to contribute an umpire with every registered team so this will ensure all clubs and teams are working with the association in increasing as well as improving the calibre of officials running games," the statement said.

"Suva Netball is fortunate to have Jona Saturu who is the highest ranked umpire in Fiji and holds a NZ B badge qualification in umpiring, with the assistance of Moape Vu and our Suva president Ruci Camaitoga who is a certified Oceania Bench Official, all of whom are well-versed in these respective fields to be conducting these clinics.

"Suva Netball urges all association members to make use of this opportunity to learn as much as they can."

Organisers of the knockout are urging netball lovers to be present at the centre from 9am to witness the competition level and officiating standards.

Meanwhile, registration for new clubs will be from 8am at the centre.
