Competition Rules – Fast5
Fast5 features modified rules that are outlined below. Outside of these, the standard rules of netball apply.
- Players: Each side only has five players on the court, compared with seven in normal netball competition.
- Timing: Each quarter lasts only six minutes, compared with 15 minutes in normal international netball competition. Breaks in between quarters are two minutes each. Injury time-outs are 30 seconds only; standard rules allow for one initial two-minute injury time-out.
- Coaching: Coaches can give instructions to players from the sidelines during play, from in front of their playing bench. Standard international rules do not allow coaching during play.
- Substitutions: Teams are allowed to use rolling substitutions, with no stoppages in play per substitution and with unlimited substitutions per quarter. Standard international rules only allow substitutions either between quarters or when a player is injured.
- Power plays: Each team can separately nominate one “power play” quarter, in which each goal scored by that team counts for double points. The two teams cannot nominate the same quarter to be their power play.
- Two and Three-point shots: Similar to three-point field goals in basketball and two-point goals in six-a-side indoor netball, the goal shooter (GS) and goal attack (GA) may shoot goals from outside the shooting circle. These goals count for two points if scored from inside the outer zone and three points if scored in the super shot zone; in a power-play quarter, they would count for four and six points respectively. In standard netball rules, goals can only be shot from within the shooting circle and count for one point only.
- Centre passes: After each goal, the team that conceded the goal takes the next centre pass; teams alternate taking the first centre pass of each quarter. Under normal rules, a toss determines the first centre pass of the match, after which centre passes alternate between the two teams.
- Tied scores: Tied games are decided by penalty shoot-outs. Tied games simply continue until one team wins in extra time, or else subsequently achieves a two-goal advantage.
Each team will be responsible to supplier their own scorer. Score cards are to be collected from Control with the first team listed in the division draw responsible on collection. The winning team is responsible to return the completed score card to the control after the game. Any score cards not handed in after the game will have no points allocated.
Any team found to have players who are not registered but play during the summer competition will lose 2 points.
In the event of games being cancelled due to wet weather half games will be played the following round. RNA will communicate any wet weather notices via the RNA website or RNA Facebook page.
Any team unable to play their scheduled game must advise the RNA by midday on the Wednesday of play. Team Captains are responsible to communicate any forfeits direct to email@example.com
Points will be awarded to the opposing team in the event of a forfeit.
Grand finals for all divisions will be held on the final round ie Wednesday, 11 December 2019. The winning team for each division will be noted as “first past the post”.
