Results from the 2018 VOP survey said over 50% of our community had experienced poor sideline behaviour. We don’t realise the impact our behaviours can have and we want to creative positive sporting experiences so, with the support of our Netball Northern Zone centres, we have come up with a Community Campaign: STAND WITH ME – Kiá tú ngátahi tatou.
Netball Centres have received Stand With Me Poster/Court Signage and Ambassador Sashes. The sashses will be provided to a representative from each team/sideline to act as a Positive Sideline Behaviour Ambassador for that game. Sashes will be handed out with score cards for each game and returned to the control room with the score card. We encourage centres and the netball community to use the catch phrase ‘Stand with Me - Kiá tú ngátahi tátou’ – to stand together to support our Whanau and our community as we partake in an activity that we care about!
