CONGRATULATIONS ALANAH!

IMG_1025Welcome to the Rangers Team White “C” Club, Alanah Jenkins.

Yesterday Alanah was awarded her National C Umpiring Badge.  Alanah has been supporting her club with umpiring for several years and having earned her Association Gold Award last year has taken one more step on the  umpire pathway – must be in the genes.

Alanah had to umpire our Rangers A Reserve team, of which our Umpiring Convenor is a member,  which meant Emily had the chance to see up very close her umpiring standard.  Emily commented that it was the best umpiring A Reserve had had all season.  Congratulations Alanah!

THIS RULE WILL KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF…

imagesThis rule has a lot of people surprised but here it is, you can bounce the ball once, under Playing the Ball:

  • 9.4.1 Methods of Playing the Ball
    • (iii) Without having possession of the ball a player may:
      • (d) Bounce the ball once before either catching the ball or batting or bouncing it to another player.

20160615_183049Umpire Get-to-gether:  Our Team White Umpires had a great session on Wednesday with AA Badge Umpire, Dianne Cocker.  Some feedback included “It was good to hear about the successes and hardships of an experienced umpire at all Australian level” and “something that really resonated was when she said that in playing netball there is a team and umpires were also a team and needed to support each other “

PHOTO DAY TOMORROW

UMPIRING NEWS

Unfortunately our Basic Umpiring Course planned for this Wednesday has to be postponed but …. the good news….. we are very excited to announce that we have a special guest speaker, Dianne Cocker, AA Badge Umpire (yep two A’s)

Di is the most recent umpire from Qld to be awarded the AA Badge and, among her achievements has been umpiring in the former national league as well as being part of the ANZ Championship umpiring pool.

This opportunity has been possible due to our CAPS Program funded by the Queensland Government Get Going Funding.  All interested parties are welcome to attend:

  • Date:        This Wednesday, 15 June 2016
  • Time:        6.00pm -7.00pm
  • Venue:       WDNA Club House
  • Topic:        Di will be sharing her experience as an AA and where umpiring can lead. It doesn’t have to be second to playing and the opportunities it can bring.

Strapping Sunday …

A few dedicated Rangers players and coaches came along this windy Sunday morning to do a strapping course, and learnt ways to strap multiple joints (ankles, knees, wrists, thumbs, fingers, shoulders) – Good thing it was all preventative, however the tape removal was a tad painful at times.
