Netball Americas Looking Forward to Caribbean Games

Marva Bernard, the administrative head of Netball in the Americas, is hopeful that next year's Caribbean Games will provide a development boost for some regional members hit hard by the postponement of the 2021 Netball World Youth Cup.

Last week the International Netball Federation (INF) announced that the global youth tournament to be held in Fiji from June 10th-19th was postponed due to the novel coronavirus, which causes the COVID-19 disease.

The world governing body has not yet given new dates for the tournament which features netballers aged 21 and under.

“The postponement is disappointing, but it's the best decision that could be made at this time when the COVID-19 pandemic is not under control in the way that the Government of Fiji would like it to be for the championship to happen in June next year,” Bernard, the Americas Federation of Netball Associations (AFNA) President, told the Jamaica Observer.

“Here in the Americas region there is to be the Caribbean Games, which is another development tournament to be held between the end of June and early July next year.

“So members who are disappointed still have the opportunity to play. It is for Under-23 players, so there is something to rock back on for developing talent,” the long-standing Jamaican netball administrator added.

The regional games is a multi-sport event sanctioned by the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC). With organizers closely monitoring the coronavirus pandemic, it is scheduled to be staged in Guadeloupe from June 30th to July 4th, 2021.

INF Host INF World Ranking Webinar

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.
