Despite Netball Victoria giving the green light for community netball to recommence training this week, the Tallangatta and District Netball Association won't be jumping straight in.
The league will hold a meeting on Thursday night to run through the guidelines clubs must adhere to as part of step one in a return to the court.
Netball Victoria advised on Monday that from Thursday May 21 groups of up to 10 people are permitted to train outdoors in line with the state governments eased COVID-19 social distancing restrictions.
TDNA president Judy Loorham said there's a lot to think about before a return can be made.
"It's not training as we used to know it, it's training differently," Loorham said.

"Some clubs are very anxious to get back and some are a bit more tentative.
"We'll have a chat with clubs and get a feel for where they're sitting."
Guidelines for associations and clubs to get back to training include a get in, train, and get out approach, with a 1.5 metre physical distance to be maintained.
While training is considered the first step in a return, Loorham admits the fate of a netball season is still no clearer at this stage.
She said the desired outcome would be to see the league return as a whole with both football and netball coinciding.
"We run in conjunction with the football so we try and ensure everything we're doing is similar to what they're doing," Loorham said.
"We don't know what the return to play requirements are going to look like, so it's difficult at this stage."
The Tallangatta and District Football and Netball league season is currently still on hold until at least May 31 this year.
