When will the Commission decide if the League can resume come July?
The SNL Commission will review the situation before the end of May and based on the latest medical advice and government regulation, will determine whether the season start date should be extended further. Clubs, athletes and coaches will need appropriate lead time ahead of the recommencement of SSN.
What were the other options?
There were a number of options. Ultimately the League wants to do everything possible to ensure our players, staff and supporters are healthy and well throughout this pandemic.
Is there a possibility of the season being cancelled?
Our focus has rightly been a decision relating to the start of the SSN season and the SNL Commission will review the situation before the end of May and based on the latest medical advice and government regulation, will determine whether the season start date should be extended further. Cancellation would be a last resort.
Are players going home?
That’s a matter for each player. At this stage all international and interstate athletes are considering what’s best for them and their families. In the interim, Netball Australia, SNL, Clubs and the Australian Netball Players Association have come together, to agree how to support the well-being of our athletes in what will be uncertain and challenging times.
Will this impact any international matches this year?
Netball Australia is working with the other nations involved in the Quad Series and Constellation Cup to determine what the approach will be in relation to these matches. Further information will be communicated once decisions have been made.
