Women are increasingly seeking to continue their participation in sports, such as netball, throughout their pregnancy. Accordingly, these pregnancy guidelines have been developed by Totally Netball to provide information and guidance for all those participating in netball.
Totally Netball is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for all who participate in netball, including those who are pregnant. Playing netball has many health benefits, and current research suggests that a moderate amount of exercise during pregnancy can have beneficial effects. However, netball is a physically demanding game which requires a high level of agility. It also involves a degree of contact and carries an inherent risk of accident and injury, both to the participant and the unborn child. Accordingly, participation in netball during pregnancy is at the risk of the participant.
Whilst the decision as to whether or not to participate rests solely with the relevant participant:
The participant's own health and the health of the unborn child are of paramount importance;
Totally Netball strongly recommends that the participant:
consults with their own appropriately qualified medical practitioner to inform them, on a voluntary basis, of their pregnancy and to obtain individual and specific professional medical advice before participating in netball (both during and following pregnancy), in particular regarding the risks of such participation;
acts in accordance with the medical advice received; and
attends regular check-ups with their medical practitioner throughout and following their pregnancy regarding their participation in netball, adjusting participation accordingly;
The participant will be responsible for ensuring she has appropriate insurance cover for participating in netball during and following pregnancy; and
by participating when pregnant, the participant will be deemed to have consented to any risks (including any risk of injury to the participant and/or the unborn child) that may arise from such participation. Aside from liability for death or personal injury resulting from negligence, the participant will also be deemed to have waived any and all claims, causes and rights of action against Totally Netball or SENYAD LIMITED.
Registering a team is becoming more and more popular by participants. However, there are some key points which need to be adhered to by being the main registrar of the team:
Each individual, within the team, will still need to register
