Player ratings have been implemented to enable players to know where they can ring AND for Team Organisers to see the make-up of their team to ensure it meets the criteria for the league they are playing in. Please read all sections.
PLAYERS CAN ONLY RING IN A DIVISION EQUAL TO OR ABOVE THEIR RATING – NEVER LOWER

Example:
Sharon has a Player Rating of 2 – she can ring in Division 2 or higher (not lower)
Joanne has a Player Rating of 4 – she can ring in Division 4 or higher (not lower)

PLEASE NOTE:  If one of your teams higher rated players is unable to play for your team one week, you CANNOT use another higher rated player as a ringer – this would be breaking the ringers rule.

Example:
Lucy is registered to a division 3 team and has a rating of 2. Lucy is unable to play this week. You must replace Lucy with a player who is rated 3 or below. You are NOT permitted to replace Lucy with another player rated 2 or higher.

TEAMS MUST NOT HAVE MORE THAN 2 PLAYERS RATED HIGHER THAN THE DIVISION THEY ARE PLAYING IN

If a team has a player or would like to add a player who is rated 2 divisions higher than the division that the team play in, then they would need to seek approval from Netball Fun League via our Contact Us page – click here

Correct Player Rating Balance:
Team called Fast Flyers wants to play in a division 3 League and is made up of two players Rated 2 and five players rated 3 or below

Incorrect Player Rating Balance:
Team called Hoopstastix wants to play in a Division 3 League and is made up of three players Rated 2 and four players Rated 3 or below

Netball Fun League reserve the right to have the final say on where a team can register for. This is to ensure our leagues remain as fair and competitive as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when a new player joins my team?

If the player is already in the Netball Fun League system, their Player Rating will already be in place and will automatically transfer. The Team Organiser would need to make sure that this new player would fit with the TEAM MAKE UP CRITERIA for their division.

If the player is NEW to Netball Fun League (not in the Netball Fun League system) then, once registered you will need to contact us by clicking here

How are the Player Ratings Worked Out?
A players’ ability is judged upon different characteristics that span across all positions (Delivery of passes, spacial awareness, ability to work with others) as well as positional specific attributes such as shooting accuracy, defence of a shot. This takes into account any team member that plays a number of positions.

Can a Player Rating Change? 
Yes of course it can. Over time players inevitably improve and we will constantly try to keep on top of ratings and adjust in accordance with progress. Likewise, should a player for any reason no longer be of a higher standard, we can adjust.

Who can see a Player Rating?
Your individual player rating is visible to you when you log in to your Netball Fun League account via our website. In addition to this your Team Organiser can view your rating. The ratings are not meant to be a closely guarded secret. They are there to help you source the correct ringers for your team in matches where needed. No excuses.
