Student playing netballNetball is offered as a sport option for Years 1–8 students in Terms 2 and 3.

Netball is delivered in different variations depending on students' year levels.

For Years 1–2 students, a mini skills option is offered for throughout the school year. During Terms 2 and 3, this is led by the Preparatory School Year 8 netball captains.

Years 3–6 play in the Future Ferns Competition, which introduces basic netball skills and positional play. Students are rotated around positions several times in each game to experience and practise a number of skills. There is one practice and one after school game each week. There may be a Saturday morning option for Year 6 students.

Years 7–8 students have one practice, a core sport practice session and one Saturday competition game each week. Pre-season training and trials are held during core sports in Term 1, during school time. 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.
