2018 Off-Season Programme Yr 7-11

By Term 4, the Netball Wellington Centre will have completed our Junior Netball Academy for Year 5-8 which is offered as a mid-season programme in Terms 2 & 3 each year.  It's always really great to see a good number of keen participants happy to show off their newly-polished skills by the end of each term.

In Term 4, we let our Year 5s take a well-deserved break but there are still some netball options available for Year 6 upwards if you want to keep your skills sharp outside of the netball season...

We'd love to see you all back at our social Kids’ Netball Comp run on Wednesdays for Year 5&6.  You'll find the online registration link located down the right hand side of our webpage for you to click to register once it is made available.
Individuals are also welcome to enter if you are unable to pull together a team of your own - please email games@netballwellington.co.nz and our Games Coordinator will do their best to help you find a team.

For Year 7-11 players, there is the opportunity to attend our Off Season Netball Development Programme run at the Kilbirnie ASB Sports Centre on Monday/Tuesday afternoons for six-weeks starting in the second or third week of Term 4.

Keep your head in the game during the off-season so you can work towards hitting your full potential in preparation for next year!

This six-week programme is aimed at motivated netballers moving into Year 7-11 in 2018 who ultimately just want to start their netball season off on the best foot possible. Whether you may have an intention to trial for top school teams or representative level teams (Under 15 or Under 17) or just want to have the most fun possible, this programme should give you a good boost in the right direction.  The key focus is on helping to keep skills sharp and be confident with the basic skills in preparation for playing at their full potential. Sessions have a strong focus on basic skills and coaches will aim to correct technique for the benefit of the player.
