WDNA Scoring Protocol

WDNA value the contribution of volunteers and have asked that all clubs share the districts' scoring protocol. It is important that the responsibility of scoring is shared across teams. Please see the WDNA Score Card Example as a step by step guide to filling out a score sheet. 

Scorers: 
Technical officials responsible for maintaining a scoring record of the match together with a record of centre passes and details of players on court.

Scorecard: 
The official record of the match results.

Scorers shall ensure:

  • The team listed first on the fixture sheet shall collect the card from the WDNA front counter.
  • Before the start of play ensure all players have signed the card.
  • One scorer from each team shall stand together on the sideline in the middle of the court.
  • During the match, record goals scored for each team as they occur as well as any unsuccessful shots. Successful goals are recorded as a stoke and missed goals are recorded as a dot. Tally the scores at the end of each quarter. 
  • Keep a record of the centre pass taken by each team.
  • DO NOT call out while scoring (this includes cheering). 
  • Notify the umpires if an incorrect centre pass is indicated prior to the whistle being blown for the centre pass. No action will be taken if the centre pass has already been taken. 
  • At the end of the match scorers, umpires, and captains sign the scorecard.
  • The winning team should return the scorecard to WDNA admin.

Reporting an Incident

The Incident Protocol will be added to the Raiders website soon. It is important to note the Raiders Netball Club Parent Player Agreement (accepted behaviour) located on our 'Our Policies' page.
