Entries to the 2020 Anchor AIMS Games International Sporting Championships will be made and only accepted online:
If registration for an activity is oversubscribed, then the opportunity to participate will be at the discretion of the executive committee and no further correspondence will be entered into (if unsuccessful team/individual entry will be refunded). The four semi-finalists in the tournament of the previous year have right of entry.
Final placings from the 2019 Anchor AIMS Games tournament will determine seedings for this year. If oversubscribed the top 96 placed teams from last year will get automatic entry with final 32 places being balloted if required. Teams withdrawing last minute will be replaced with an Invitation teams (where possible).
The AIMS Games Trust recommends a maximum of 60 minutes of play per day for a student of this age. Coaches and Managers must ensure they bring a sufficient squad to enable player rotation to ensure player safety. Netball NZ (NNZ) and the AIMS Games Trust recommends all players play a minimum of half a game for every game.
As of the 1st January 2016, new rules were introduced internationally for Netball. Schools are to ensure umpires, coaches and players are made fully aware of these changes. Local netball centres will be hosting rule change workshops at the beginning of the netball season, otherwise visit www.netball.org/netball/the-rules-of-netball or https://www.netballnz.co.nz/our-game/rules-of-netball.
Attendance at a NetballSmart educational workshop is a compulsory event for all coaches prior to the Anchor AIMS Games netball tournament. The workshop not only works through the NetballSmart Year 7 and 8 Power warm up but also provides very useful tips on recovery, hydration and nutrition and how to survive a tournament which is relevant for coaches and managers. Contact the NetballSmart Development Officer in your area to find out more about the workshops.
