Students are rotated around positions several times in each game to experience and practise a number of skills. There is one practice a week at school (usually Wednesday 2.30pm–3.30pm). Games are played on Fridays from 4.00pm–5.00pm at the Netball Centre in Hagley Park. A mini skills option is offered for Years 1–3 students throughout the school year.
Years 6–8 students play in the Saturday competition at the Hagley Netball Courts. Pre-season training and trials are held at the end of Term 1. We have an ‘A’ squad and also a number of mixed ability teams. Students have the opportunity to specialise in particular positions, however, this is not a necessity and coaching is pitched at positional flexibility. Students have one or two practices per week. On Saturday there is a 50-minute game which is held at Hagley Netball Courts.
