The Rules have been updated to reflect the need for at least one C grade Umpire or above on each match.The MNA Committee would appreciate it if Umpires could please rearrange cover for their allocated matches if they are unable to do them.

Clarification of the League Rule regarding, filling in Score Cards prior to the match and the addition of an exception for reserve players whom normally play in another team.
Following a query at the weekend, the Manx Netball Association Committee wish to clarify that whilst squad members should be on the score card before a match commences, they are mindful that reserves could be from a different team within the Club and once they are down on the scorecard they are then tied to that team.
Following consultation the Committee has decided to amend the rule to allow reserves from a different team to be written down after the match commences, but before they take to the court.
Extra time will NOT be allowed so teams need to act promptly if such a situation arises during a match.

Rule change for Players aged Under 18 participating in the Senior League
The MNA decided at their last meeting, there needed to be more development opportunities to the Under 18's and at the suggestion of one of the Performance coaches it was agreed to allow Players aged Under 18 (participating in the Senior League) to play up to two matches on a Sunday, one for their own team and the other for any higher team in their Club.
Players (U18 only) will no longer be tied if they play up more than twice.
Captains are asked to ensure all U18 players are highlighted on the score card this enables the checks on player movement to be carried out more easily.
