  • Mother Earth futureFERNS Year 5-6 Fee $406 aside

Season starts Tuesday 28 April 3.45-5.45

The focus is on continued ‘learning’ of netball as Junior players will have an increased enthusiasm to learn but still want to have fun and experience the game with their friends. Netball continues to be modified for this age group but there is the first introduction of 6 v 6 game play. This involves full court play with relaxed umpiring. The focus is on player rotation to prevent early specialisation of positions. Players are continuing to develop both physically, technically and socially so it is important to give them the opportunity to play a wide range of positions on the court, regardless of their physical attributes.

  • Mother Earth futureFERNS Years 3-4 Fee $35 5 aside

Season starts Thursday 30 April 3.45-5.45

The focus for this age group is on learning the basics with players joining in a skill development session prior to a modified netball game of 5 v 5, using two-thirds of a netball court. It’s designed to be fast and fun, maximising participation and touches of the ball.
