ANZ futureFERNS offers four different year groups for our junior Netball programme.
Year 1 & 2
Introduces Netball to 5-6 year olds. The aim is to develop fundamental movement and basic Netball skills. Playing 4 v 4 allows the players to pass, catch and shoot from day one.
Year 3 & 4
Year 3 & 4 is designed to be fast and fun, maximising participation and touches of the ball. With modified equipment and less players on the court, in 5 v 5 the game is less complicated.
Year 5 & 6
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 and easier for coaches to ensure the players learn the skills relevant to all and to provide them with equal opportunities.
Year 7 & 8
Players have developed a considerable understanding of the game and are now playing 7 v 7. The emphasis is on converting 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.
I wanted to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for the successful season we had at Manurewa Netball Centre. The support and resources you've provided have made this season enjoyable. The quality of the umpire workshops you provide are greatly appreciated. Thank you also for the amazing comms throughout the season, the prompt responses and actions taken on requests we asked throughout the season.
