It could be the squeak of the floorboards, the shriek of an umpires whistle or the sound of the netball skirts sashaying down the court, but walking into a netball stadium instantly makes Mamma want to don the GK bib and yell “HERE IF YOU NEED!” The memories flow back as we gave the Net4Kids program a red hot go. These 45 minute clinics are especially designed for children aged 2.5 - 5 years. The sessions are full of activity with plenty of running, climbing, throwing and catching with a touch of netball skills thrown in as a basic introduction to the game. We are not talking trying to teach the stepping rule to three year olds, but simple things like ‘netball feet' - where they jump and freeze, zig zag running patterns and making attempts to shoot a goal.
Mamma’s special mention: This program is a natural feeder session to the next junior netball program - NetSetGo. This is a national program and you can find the details here.
