September Newsletter 2022

Kia Ora Koutou,

Here is our latest newsletter.


Our Annual General Meeting will be held on 
Thursday 24th November 2022.


At 11:59 yesterday (Monday 12 September 2022), the Government announced a new COVID-19 Strategy which will replace the old Covid Protection Framework (CPF) and Traffic Light System that we’ve been operating under for the past few months. 
Updates to these changes can be found on the SNZ website HERE

These changes mean that there are no longer any restrictions for our sector under the new strategy. 

The summary changes are:

  • The CPF and associated restrictions have been removed
  • The remaining vaccination mandates will be removed on 26 September
  • Vaccination and testing requirements for travellers into New Zealand (such as teams and athletes) have been removed, however it is recommended they complete tests on day one and day five after arrival
  • Household contacts no longer need to self-isolate for seven days but are asked to test daily for five days. Positive cases are still required to self-isolate for seven days
  • There are no mask requirements for sport and recreation settings (both spectating and participating)
  • Sport and recreation participation providers and participants are advised to follow general public health guidelines outlined on the Unite Against COVID-19 page.

Thank you to all our netball membership, regular facility hirers and wider community users for your co-operation and support to abide by the different changes we set out over a difficult couple of years due to adopting the Covid Protection Framework.


Congratulations to all our futureFERNS teams this year. 
Thank you for participating in our 2022 winter netball season.
We look forward to seeing you all in 2023!

Summer is rolling on in and we have a FREE Whanau Multi Sports Nights coming up.

Netball Manurewa is collaborating with other sports to provide this FREE event for our community so make sure to come down and check it out and have a go!



In April 2022, Netball Manurewa (NM) surveyed all Manurewa local schools, with a view to understanding the “barriers” that schools currently experience, which may contribute to entering teams at NM, in season.  NM has worked hard to try to alleviate or reduce these barriers, and as a result, the new NM “Netball Revitalisation programme 2023” has been created. 

The programme will involve a 4-Tiered approach:

  • Player development
  • Umpire development
  • Coach development
  • Netball Leaders development

The programme delivery will provide experienced and qualified netball deliverers, to work with School Students in school settings (at a day/time which suits schools best) and at the NM Community & Events Centre (Netball Leaders development programme for Y9+ youth).  

The “Netball Revitalisation programme 2023” will provide participating schools with:

  • sports equipment (netballs, ball bag, whistles, umpire/coach resources)
  • increased knowledge of netball and netball qualifications, through player, coach, umpire development in school delivery
  • encourage more rangatahi & youth to be more involved in sport and learn ‘transferrable skills’ to add to their CV and build self confidence, self esteem & knowledge.  Assisting Y9+ students with achievement of NCEA credits relating to Sport Officiating.
  • providing a FREE 6 week netball competition at the conclusion of the programme delivery

15 local schools and 5 clubs will be the recipients of the new programme.  We’re excited to deliver this programme to in 2023. If your school or club is interested in participating in this programme please contact the office before 20th August.

Funding is pivotal to our ability to deliver this programme, we are hopeful our funding application is approved in the near future.
