Playing Information

  • Players should play in 3 different positions each game.
  • Players should play equally in all positions across the court throughout the season.
  • All players must play at least 2 quarters of every game (unless ill or injured).

Net Set Go Competition Rules

  • Time to pass the ball – players should be encouraged to pass the ball within 5 seconds.
  • Footwork – coaches encourage correct footwork at all times, however, shuffling on the spot to gain balance before passing is acceptable. There should be no forward or sidewards movement down or across the court.
  • Defending – One-on-one defence at all times. Shots for goal may be defended by one player defending from 1.2 metres.
  • Obstruction – the correct distance for defence in Net Set Go Competition is 1.2 metres.

Major infringements – obstruction / contact

A player who contacts or obstructs will not be stood out of play. The umpire will blow the whistle, stop play, explain the infringement and demonstrate the correct technique.
