Netball training for Year 5 and 6 is on a Tuesday from 3:15pm until 4:15pm.
We start with a warm up, followed by a range of passing, footwork and shooting drills and then we apply our new skills in game play. Every child gets the opportunity to play a range of positions in both attack and defence while also getting the opportunity to umpire from court-side.
During our Tuesday training sessions we pick the team which consists of 7 players and 2 subs. We aim to give every player a chance to play a match during our season which is September to March. The children will then play matches against other schools alongside our school football team on Thursday’s after school.
The girls have played incredibly well so far this season and we have our final match on Friday 20th April 2018. This is the Evans Cup final game. The whole squad have worked hard and significantly improved throughout the course of this season!
