Year 3 and 4

Year 3-4 games are played on the Newlands College netball courts in term 3 from around 2-4pm (depending on the number of teams registered). Sessions run for 45 minutes and include a warm-up, skills session and a game.

 

The focus for this age group is learning basic skills in a modified game of 5 v 5, using two thirds of a netball court. Mother Earth Future Ferns Year 3 and 4 is designed to be fast and fun, maximising participating and touches of the ball. With modified equipment and less players on the court, in 5 v 5 the game is less complicated. Five players in each team and rotating positions ensures everyone gets an equal chance to develop their skills.

 

Coaching

All teams are required to have a coach (or star helper) that completes the appropriate training/s as set out by Northern Suburbs Netball committee.
