Year 5 and 6

Year 5-6 games are played at Newlands College and ocassionally Newlands Intermediate over terms 2 and 3 from around 11am - 1pm (depending on the number of teams registered). Registrations for Year 5-6 teams will open on the 1st April 2019.


Play 6 v 6 which is a fast game provididing lots of touches on the ball. The 6 v 6 game is played on a full size court with three positions on each team. Players rotate to prevent early specialisation in positions. The emphasis is on all players geting plenty of touches of the ball and the opportunity to develop a broad skill set.



Keep an eye out for coaching courses either run by Northern Suburbs or Neball Wellington Region. There is a specific Year 5 and 6 course which will be run yearly. Like our Facebook page to keep up to date with upcoming courses.
