The administration of the National Schools Event has been reviewed and England Netball have now released new regulations for the National Schools Competition which relates to all levels from local through to county; regional and up to the national event.
The format of the regulations has changed to provide a clearer overview of the competition structure as well as an amended section regarding complaints and appeals. These regulations need to be implemented throughout all county and regional rounds (and sections 4, 7 and 8 for area rounds – see section 2.2 in the regulations). Please note; this is part of an initial review of the National Schools regulations and further changes may be made during the second stage of review prior to the 2014/15 season when they will come into effect.
We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the regulations and share with anyone involved in the competition.

England Netball are pleased to provide updated guidance related to domestic rules for Netball in England. As you know we play to the INF Rules of Netball, however where the rules do not necessarily meet the needs for netball played within England we sometimes need to adjust to suit our unique needs. Various groups have helped shape these rulings and they have all been approved by the England Netball Rules Committee. As with many rules there is a balance between player safety and inclusion. England Netball believe that these domestic rulings strike this balance.
