Please note that this is a very popular program and we are limited by court space and coach availablity. Therefore, it is strongly advised that registration forms are returned promptly. Only those who have returned their registration form and payment will be accepted and registrations will close when full. Others will be placed on a waiting list for inclusion in the program if a place becomes available. It is inappropriate to arrive at the courts with a child expecting to play without being registered as this is distressing for the child (and us).
Information about the Grade 1 program:
Our JuniorNet G1 program is a junior development program which focuses on fundamental motor skills and has been designed to introduce young children to organised sport.
It comprises a play based motor skills program for children in school year 1. The emphasis is on the acquisition of basic motor skills, in a fun environment of games and activities appropriate to the age and abilities of children in Year 1. Refinement of netball specific motor skills will be introduced when they reach the next stage of netball in Year 2.
The guidelines for the G1 program are:
Children join the program as individuals, not in teams.
Players are arranged into groups with 2-3 coaches / group.
Coaches are generally secondary school netballers / Boroondara Power representative team players who are also learning the skills of coaching.
Each session is divided into 3 parts: warm up, motor skills and a mini game.
Modified equipment is used
Children rotate around different stations doing different games and activities.
This program does NOT involve netball matches. There is no organised competition structure.
