2020 Finals Information!

With the last game upon us, we have received important information regarding finals. This information must be read by all members.

There was a typo in a previous update from the club and incorrect information on mynetball regarding finals. We would like to inform members that the first final fixtures will be played as 1st v 3rd and 2nd v 4th. This was sent out in an early memo and has not changed.

When are finals?

- The first final will take place on the 11/12th September between 1 v 3 and 2 v 4.

- Winners from those games will go through to the grand final on the 18/19th September. 

Who scores and times?

Games will NOT be centrally timed due to the possibility of drawn games and overtime having to be played. The teams who finished 1st and 2nd will be required to supply a scorer and the teams that finished 3rd and 4th will be required to provide a timer.  

Game times -

Open games will have 15 minute quarters with breaks of 3, 5, 3. All other age groups will have 12 minute quarters with breaks of 2, 5, 2. (These breaks have been used all season.)

Who is allowed to watch?

Unfortunately, WDNA does not have the capacity to allow more spectators during finals. The reason being that the state government and local government (City of Wanneroo) have clearly stipulated that social distancing must remain in place during phase 4. This means spectators and officials must be spaced apart 1.5m along the sideline.

The number of spectators will remain at 10 people per side line for the finals series.

This number includes coaches, the manager and injured players. Each manager will be using a randomiser to determine which parents will be allocated a spot during the finals. 

A spectator list will be submitted to the club (and WDNA) for finals and only those on the list will be permitted to be court side. Anyone not on the list will be asked to leave. 

WDNA has tried to allocate games to courts that are visible from outside the complex so that parents are able to watch from the fence.

What happens if we win the grand final?

There will be no presentations held at the end of each age group in 2020. WDNA will call for an official from each winning team to collect medals. 

We will organise an area (and snacks) for teams to meet outside of the complex for celebrations and photos on the day. These details will be confirmed closer to the day.

How does the coach decide who plays in finals games?

The coach has rotated all players equally throughout the season to ensure fair court time. During finals, the coach will play the best combination/s of players on the day. All players will take the court for at least ONE quarter in each final.
