Rules for Year 1-8 transitioning through futureFERNS netball

Especially for those playing within our junior netball satellites competitions who are transitioning into the modified futureFERNS netball game variations for Year 1&2 (4v4), Year 3&4, (5v5), Year 5&6 (6v6) and Year 7&8 (7v7)...

Please find attached a handy dandy snapshot of the rules for each game.  Our aim is to help all coaches, managers, parents, supporters and players to stay on top of your game.

Also included is an outline of the key differences for those transitioning from the 6v6 game to the 7v7 game and how to assist players, parents and coaches ahead of 7-a-side trial-time to start the netball season.

All the best out there on court!

Should you have any questions please consult your individual Satellite representatives in the first instance otherwise feel free to email Netball Central Zone's Junior Netball Development Officer Irene van Dyk who will be happy to help -

Comment Guidelines: The SportsTG Network is made up of players, families and passionate sports followers like you who have a strong opinion about sport. That's great - we want you to have your say and share your thoughts with the world. However, we have a few rules that you must follow to keep it fun for all. Please don't be rude, abusive, swear or vilify others. Apart from some pretty serious sport sanctions, we also can ban you and report you if things get out of hand. So play fair and have fun, and thanks for your contribution.
