Harbourside Netball Centre
My netball dream is...
Harbourside Netball Centre is the only Netball Centre in Tauranga and currently services approximately 5000 members from as far as Katikati, Whakatane and Rotorua. Our competitions include Future Ferns, Intermediate, Seconday School (all levels) and two Senior Competitions. We also facilitate numerous tournaments such as Aims, Uniss, Teachers Games, School Cluster tournaments, Blue light, Girls Playing Sport and many more. One of our biggest growth areas and an area that is most important to our sport is our umpires and ensuring the ongoing development of these umpires, who provide leadership and structure in any game. Our centre struggles to find qualified volunteer umpire coach support as the cost of their valuable time and travel costs are burdens the centre cannot necessarily replace. Our application is to recognise these costs and to acknowledge the skill level these coaches have achieved. The outcome/impact will mean improved rosters and a strategic plan focused on the development and support our umpire coaches will provide. Our funding request also includes a request for skilled umpires who arbitrate our Senior premier league. Some of these umpires travel long distances to umpire these games weekly and the difficulty to attract these individuals who are furthering their development still need to be recognised and have at least their travel costs covered. The amount we are applying for is $18,740. This includes Umpire coach recognition over 4 nights of competition and 24 umpires that umpire our Thursday Premier Senior League. I have been unable to upload our umpire strategic plan( this is still a working document) and a breakdown of where this money would be distributed. Would you allow me to send these through to you for viewing. The benefits of this funding application will be the structured and improved development of our up coming umpires and the financial assistance to our Premier umpires along with the non impact to fees to accomadate these expenses. We appreciate your consideration and appreciate your time Ngaa mihi Tracy Walters Centre Manager
