NetSetGo

At Newport Power Netball Club, we want kids to love playing netball as much as we do!
NetSetGO is designed to introduce netball to kids aged 5-10 through games, activities, and modified matches to develop confidence and fundamental motor skills. It's a great way for your child to learn about netball and make friends in a fun, safe and social environment.

NetSetGo Term 2 2024

Woolworths NetSetGO is a fun, safe and active program for girls and boys aged 5-10 years old. It gives kids of all abilities a positive introduction to netball and teaches them the basic skills of the sport.

Each week your child will take part in skill based activities, minor games and modified matches that will help them develop fundamental movement skills, as well as important social skills like team work.

NET - Pick up basic skills, get ready to run a lot, catch a lot and play a lot of ball games.
SET - Get a bit more netball-focussed. Play practice matches, learn to pivot and work on those lightning passes.
GO - Build on the fundamentals and play modified netball matches and get to grips with more advanced drills.

We will be running all three tiers of NetSetGO in Term 2, 2024. All our tiers have friendly coaches and lots of skills instruction. Where players start will depend on their age and netball experience.

This will depend on the age of the children, the skill levels and readiness of the children and most importantly, the space we have available in our teams.
