INF Host INF World Ranking Webinar

IslandStats.com
The International Netball Federation (INF) hosted a webinar on the INF World Ranking for INF Members. The webinar provided further guidance and information on the INF World Ranking system and saw over 75 attendees from INF member countries in addition to members from the Rules Advisory Panel (RAP) and Coaching Advisory Panel (CAP).

Bermuda is now ranked 35th out of the 45 countries.

The International Netball Federation completed a global survey with Members in May 2020 to determine what areas of the World Ranking system needed further clarity and to capture ideas on how the rankings may be further developed. The webinar was presented by David Kendix, actuary and statistician, who was appointed in 2007 by the INF to create the mathematical model for the INF World Ranking system and hosted by INF CEO Clare Briegal. It included information on the basic principles, how the rankings are calculated, how the model will be adjusted in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and allowed Members to get answers to their questions.

When the annual update takes place on July 1st, 2020, the INF Board has decided that the number of matches required to be played in order to have a ranking will be reduced from eight to six. This will allow countries who have not been able to play eight matches in the period due to the suspension of international play as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic to maintain their ranking. This decision will be reviewed by INF prior to the annual update in 2021.

Caribbean Netball Association Hold AGM

IslandStats.com
President of the Saint Lucia National Netball Association, Rufina Paul has been returned to the helm of Caribbean Netball for her third consecutive term. The veteran sports administrator’s victory came when the Caribbean Netball Association (CNA) held its 46th Annual General Meeting (AGM) via Zoom.

The AGM was attended by a total of 20 delegates and six observers from 12 member countries, namely: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago.

The 32 participants included the six member CNA Executive Committee.

Due to the WHO declaration of a Covid-19 pandemic on March 11th, 2020 and the imposition of public health protocols designed to contain the spread of the virus; the CNA 46th AGM, initially scheduled to be held in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines during the period March 26th – 27th, 2020, had to be put on hold.

The order of business included the tabling of the minutes of the 45th AGM, the approval of the Executive Report and Audit for the period under review, the adoption of the amended Constitution and the Election of Executive members for the period 2020 – 2022. The CNA Council has returned the members of the last Executive Committee to serve for the incoming period; except that of Immediate Past President (IPP).

The IPP has served in that capacity for two terms, as per stipulations of the amended Constitution.

As approved by Council, the veteran sports administrator Rufina Paul will have alongside her, 1st Vice President – Nisha Craigwell of Barbados; 2nd Vice President – Doris Mc. Intosh of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines; Secretary – Debbie Ann Francois of Trinidad and Tobago; Treasurer – Daria Poyotte of Saint Lucia.

As anticipated, the impact of COVID-19 on netball was a major concern to all members. In light of prevailing circumstances, the Council agreed that the hosting of tournaments may not be feasible this year. In order to provide scope for the eligibility of players that have been disadvantaged with the cancellation of the 2020 Jean Pierre Caribbean Youth Netball Tournament (JPCYNT), the Council approved the hosting of an Under 17 (rather than an Under 16) JPCYNT in 2021. It was proposed that the “down time” should be used to advance e-learning in the areas of governance, umpiring and coaching.

Following deliberation as regards the status quo, a “Post Covid-19 Caribbean Netball” strategy committee was appointed. The Council has mandated the strategy committee to “translate talk into actions”, which is a move aimed at enhancing the capacity of member countries to secure the resources necessary to build resilience and enhance the profile of netball throughout the region.

The President took the time out to thank the CNA Council for their continued confidence in the leadership of the organization and assured member countries of the Executive’s commitment to the advancement of Caribbean Netball.
