JuniorNet G4 is a program for children in Year 4. It consists of non-competitive weekly matches with no ladders or finals.The prime aim remains skill development, learning the correct rules and having fun. Ideally children should have completed at least the JuniorNet G3 (or NetSetGo Tier 2) skill development program, but this is not always possible so is not a formal pre-requisite.
JuniorNet G4 is CLUB based so players must now join a CLUB or form an independent team to register and play > click here to learn how to join a club / team.
