News and Updates

Auditing Your Organisation's Admin Users

With Season 2024 underway, now is a good time to review who is connected to your organisation's profile in NetballConnect and determine whether changes are required.

Are there former committee members / paid staff members who no longer require the ability to have significant access to your organisation's NetballConnect?

Are all the people who have recently taken on a role that involves NetballConnect on your organisation's profile?

These changes can be made by an existing Admin User within the organisation.

You are now able to include roles for your committee members when updating the administrators on your organisation's NetballConnect profile.

By adding an 'organisation' email, communications can now be specific to those roles within your organisation.

Should you require any assistance regarding the addition or removal of people from your organisation's NetballConnect profile, please feel free to contact Netball Queensland's NetballConnect Helpdesk.

Updates for NetballConnect - 15 December 2023

  • Teams Module - The Teams Module will now be where Clubs and Associations can complete their player grading and team creation.  This will now allow you to choose multiple players at the same time to allocate to their teams.  Please see the Player and Team Grading resource if you need any guidance on how to complete player grading and team nominations.
  • Enhancement for following Teams or Associations - When following a Team in the NetballConnect app, you will now be able to choose to select Team/s or Divisions/Grades.
  • Competition Module - The Competition Module is now called 'Fixtures'.  The Player Grading section of this module has been removed and Player Grading now sits under 'Teams'.
  • Registrations - You can now choose to create a registration that does not include fixtures.  The Event/Program option in your Registration can be used for any registrations that you take that do not require a draw to be created.  Potentially, this could be for Netball Activities such as Clinics.
  • Update of the list of competitions showing in Communication to include those participating in competitions.
  • Default ladder points are now set to zero.
  • Umpires will now automatically populate from the Officials' dashboard.

Any questions regarding the above updates to NetballConnect can be directed to the NetballConnect Helpdesk.

 

Afterpay

Afterpay offers enhanced payment flexibility for registering users.  Afterpay is a buy now, pay later service that allows participants to register and then split the payments into four interest free instalments.

The organisation that the participant is registering with will be responsible for the Afterpay transaction fee of 5.7% + $0.30 of the total payment amount.  When setting fees, organisers need to be aware that anyone using this payment option will lose part of their profile for each registration using this fee and should budget accordingly.

Additional Information

  • Players that deregister through the system where a refund is given will receive an email from Afterpay that they will receive the refund amount back to their card or they will be informed on the reduction of fees from Afterpay.
  • Players that transfer / move that have used Afterpay will have their payments continued, as per the instalment dates set.
  • Any partial refund that is given due to transfer / deregistration will result in instalment payments being reduced by Afterpay to accommodate for the partial refund.

Any questions regarding the use of Afterpay in NetballConnect can be directed to the NetballConnect Helpdesk.
