Netball

Netball is offered from Years 1–8. Years 4–5 play in the Future Ferns Competition, which introduces basic netball skills and positional play.

Students are rotated around positions several times in each game to experience and practise a number of skills. There is one practice a week at school (usually Wednesday 2.30pm–3.30pm). Games are played on Fridays from 4.00pm–5.00pm at the Netball Centre in Hagley Park. A mini skills option is offered for Years 1–3 students throughout the school year.

Years 6–8 students play in the Saturday competition at the Hagley Netball Courts. Pre-season training and trials are held at the end of Term 1. We have an ‘A’ squad and also a number of mixed ability teams. Students have the opportunity to specialise in particular positions, however, this is not a necessity and coaching is pitched at positional flexibility. Students have one or two practices per week. On Saturday there is a 50-minute game which is held at Hagley Netball Courts.
