Sport

Netball is a brilliant winter sport, traditionally for girls but like all sports is open to all students. Netball is a ball sport played with 6 girls on the court at a time. The sport follows the ‘Future Ferns’ programme and heavily relies on parent help. Children are involved in a number of skills based sessions each competition night which then follows with a game. It is a great game for children learning to be a part of a team and develop fundamental ball and movement skills.

When: Competition takes place on Thursday afternoons for years 1 & 2, Tuesday afternoons for year 3 & 4 and Wednesday afternoons for years 5 & 6.

Practices take place at a time that is convenient for the team’s coach. This may be during a school lunch break or straight after school one day. This will be confirmed at the start of the season once coaches have decided.

Where: Games are played at Minogue Park in Forest Lake, Central Hamilton.

Practices take place on the turf or top courts behind the hall at Hillcrest Normal School.

Ages: Years 1 – 6
Term(s):   2 & 3  (one registration late term 1 for the season)
