Centre Management

Best practice guidelines, templates and governance resources for Netball Centre Management.

Empowering dynamic leadership, innovation and operational excellence.


As a Netball Centre, there are different requirements about what policies and documents you need to adopt, follow, report and review. Our aim is to provide Centres with links to examples, templates and the resources needed to act as a best practice tool kit.

This content aims to assist small to medium size Netball Centres in New Zealand, however it’s still relevant to larger Centres too. These resources will be added to over time.

It is not intended that every Netball Centre have all of these policies and documents. This is a guideline so please discuss and select what is most relevant and important for your Centre.

An asterisk (*) identifies resources which are required either as an Incorporated Society or by NNZ. A double asterisk (**) means a policy or document is highly recommended. These documents are listed under “Essential documents”.

Resources/ guidance on specific programme areas such as coaching, umpiring have not been included here. This is intended as a high-level Centre overview. Coaching and Umpiring resources can be found on NNZ Sport Tutor or the NNZ Resource Library.

Feedback: Centres, if you have a template you are happy to share or any feedback/ requests about content, please send it to Jenna (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)


This content is provided by NNZ as a guide and is not intended to replace or act as legal advice. We encourage you to seek further legal information as needed.
