Players who played Netball or Football in season 2019 – 

There are 2 steps involved in each membership  –

  1. League Registration (incorporating VNA payment for netball)
  2. Paying your St Mary’s Membership

In 2019 AFL Barwon have introduced a compulsory levy for all junior and senior players. This must be paid when you complete your League Registration or My Netball VNA Payment.  You cannot complete your registration/VNA without paying this fee. The levy is $5.00 per junior player and $10.00 per senior player.

STEP 1: Netball VNA Payment  – Use the information the  SMSC My Netball Portal  to register yourself to St Mary’s Sporting Club and pay your 2019 Netball Victoria (VNA) and pay the AFL Barwon Player levy.  If you have already paid a 2019 My Netball Membership (VNA) you must still go through this process and pay the AFL Barwon Player Fee.  This also registers you to SMSC.  You will have a $0 value VNA fee and then just need to pay the AFL Barwon Player fee.  Once completed go to Step 2 below.  Emails will be sent inviting you to pay your VNA.

Follow our 2019 VNA instructions to finalise your VNA.
