State Squad Practice Weekend
The venue for the State Squad weekend is yet to be confirmed. It is planned to be a central location, the final venue will be dependent on the conditions of the grounds due to the dry weather conditions.
After the successful introduction of Blue Bandage Polocrosse in 2019 the last half yearly Council meeting moved to incorporate the division at all carnivals in the 2020 season. Going forward all NSW Clubs must advertise and promote the inclusion of Blue Bandage at their carnivals. The new initiative was responsible for introducing 167 new or returning players to our sport nationally in 2019.
The database now allows for BB players to be nominated by a club like pool players.
There is a new age limit for BB, players must be over 12 years of age.
The umpire for BB at every carnival must be an accredited minimum Level 1 coach.
Please check out the website link below for more information.
PA NSW SEO Vicki Grant and Board Member Cathy Bennett held a polocrosse administrators workshop at the Yass High School on the 18 January 2019 which was evaluated as a success.
18 participants were involved in the workshop covering areas such as the database and what happens at the beginning of the year, carnivals, Blue Bandage, Paramedic Services for 2020, SZine and communication in the future.
With the help of the PA NSW Bookkeeper Belinda Cosgrove and some very experienced office bearers from local clubs, the exchange of information was very valuable for all involved. Thank you also goes to Fiona Wykes for organising the school.
PA NSW will be holding a similar workshop in the north of the state later in the year and it is hoped that we see another good roll out for this session.
