2016 Pre-Season Programme Yr 7-11

The Pre-Season Netball Development Programme is run at the start of the year in Term 1 and follows on from the good work started at our Off-Season Development Programme in Term 4.  The programme provides the opportunity to carry on maintaining skills once back from the Christmas/New Year summer break, kick-start netball-specific activity in the lead-up to the coming netball season and get in the right mindset in preparation for the coming netball season.

While the Pre-Season and Off-Season programmes complement each other, each individual six-week programme remains of benefit as a stand-alone 6-week block or as a progressive 12-week programme.  Attendees are welcome to register as they deem suitable for their needs/interest and availabilty given we appreciate summer sports are also on the go.  



Get your head in the game to kick-off the netball season and tap into your full potential in preparation for school or rep trials!

This six-week programme is aimed at motivated netballers in Year 7-11 who may intend to trial for top school teams or representative level teams (Year 7, Year 8, Under 15 or Under 17) in 2016 with a focus on preparing them to trial at their full potential. Sessions will build on players' current performance of basic skills and coaches will aim to correct technique for the benefit of the player.  While our off-season programme focused on fitness and drills, our pre-season programme aims to extend players' technical ability and on-court application within their chosen area on court.

We are fortunate to have the expertise of Bubs Reweti leading these sessions. Bubs has been a rep level coach for many years and has a passion for working with dedicated young netballers, building on their current tactical skills and extending their technical ability and positional play in preparation for playing at rep-level.  Bubs is also happy to provide guidance to players who are not yet sure what position they are best suited to play.

This programme suits netball players in Year 7-11 in 2016.  It aims to prepare this age group for school trials as well as potential Year 7, Year 8, U15 and possibly U17 age groups representative trials.
