Woolworths futureFERNS

Introduces Netball to 5-6 year olds. The aim is to develop fundamental movement and basic Netball skills. The focus for this age group is on ‘exploring’ Netball. It allows players to catch, pass, and shoot from day one, providing a fun introduction to Netball. Junior co-ordinators/ star helpers are on court to guide and assist coaches & parents. 

This programme will run for approximately four weeks. Tuesday Afternoons from 3:45pm-4:45pm inside at Saxton Stadium. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Tuesday 7th May - 11th June

The focus for this age group is on ‘learning’ the basics of Netball. It’s designed to be fast and fun, maximising participation and touches of the ball. With modified equipment and less players on the court the game is less complicated. Coaches are allowed in their attacking end and guide both learns.

This programme runs on a Tuesday or Wednesday, from 3:45pm-4:45pm outside on the Netball courts. Schools only register teams to play on one of the days. 

Tuesday/ Wednesday 7th May - 25th June​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The 6 v 6 game is fast and provides players with lots of touches on the ball to enhance skill development and enjoyment. With only three positions on court, it means the game is less complicated for children. It is easier for coaches to ensure that the players learn the skills relevant to all positions and provide equal opportunities.  

This programme runs on Saturday mornings at 9:00am or 10:15am for a total of 10 weeks. Games consist of 8-minute quarters. 

​​​​​​​Saturday 4th May - 3rd August ​​​​​​​​​​​

Players have developed a considerable understanding of the game and are now playing 7-a-side. The emphasis is on converting the fundamental movement and basic Netball skills to foundation Netball skills. Performance, challenge and ‘playing’ are key motives for this age group. Ensuring positional rotation and playing at least half a game will give each player the opportunity to participate and develop. 

Games are played on Saturdays for 12 weeks.
