They came out on the front foot to combat the COVID pandemic.
Posting informative and insightful videos on their Facebook page, but they know the battle isn't over yet.
The Southern Highland Netball Association (SHNA) will be getting back into action on Saturday, July 18 and players, coaches and committee members can't wait.
President of the Southern Highland Netball Association, Cecelia Marmont is excited to kick off the competition this weekend, but knows the battle with COVID is not even close to being finished.
"COVID is still going, it sure isn't over," Marmont said.
"We're putting in all the COVID necessary things for the weekend. We may have a guide, but that doesn't mean we can't go above and beyond to battle this.
"We're not through it and we haven't even had our first round yet. We start tomorrow and that's really exciting.
"We're thankful we've made it this far. Other associations like Wollondilly and Camden have shut their season and postponed. We're really grateful to be going ahead."
With the recent scraping of Rugby League in the Highlands till August 1, surrounding competitions have been advised to lower spectator attendance for competition going ahead this weekend.
Again, the netball association is on the front foot and has that already put that measurement in place for this weekend's competition.
"We're really limiting the number of our spectators," Marmont said.
"This is pretty easy to adhere too. We're only allowing one spectator per child. We will consider family dynamics, but if you have siblings, don't bring them. If you have vulnerable family members that want to watch, don't bring them.
"It's a matter of putting these measurements in place and then hoping community members are practicing their own COVID safety.
"We have a coding system that makes it easier for registration when entering the building that is nice and easy. We also have a database collecting and able to be monitored.
"We don't have to do these things according to Wingecarribee Shire Council, but we feel it would be a bigger benefit to our community."
SHNA knew posting large clumps of text on their social media platforms could tune out readers and might result in them skipping important COVID information.
They thought outside the bubble and began creating engaging video content that allowed people to retain information in a entertaining way.
"They were a lot of fun to create," Marmont said.
"It just makes getting the information out there easier. We don't know who will be coming to the games, who's up to date and reading latest news on COVID.
"So we made the information as simple as possible and made fun videos to get our message across. It just makes it so much easier to let our community know what our expectations of them are also."
With games returning this weekend, it is a sign of 'normality' returning, but Marmont and the association know there's a long way till normality returns and that's if it does.
"I'm not sure if we will have normality again (laughs)," Marmont said.
"This could be a part of a new normal. Every Winter hopefully people will now be much more aware of how easy it is to pass on germs. That's a good thing for society in general.
"But normality? How long's a piece of string? (laughs)."
