1. Fair play
ANZA Netball has an experienced group of coaches who teach their young players the rules of play and sporting ethics. As your child runs, jumps, defends and shoots, they’ll also be gaining a better understanding of fair play and respect for others … which are fantastic life skills, and useful both on and off the court.
2. All ages
From kindy kids to teens, ANZA Netball offers a bib to match your child’s age and stage. Younger players (5-8 years) focus on basic hand eye coordination, throwing, catching, foot work skills and passing. Older players (9-16 years) progress to more strategic play, such as defence, attack and goal shooting.
Netball is fantastic for teaching kids how to work as a team. Each season they set a common goal, learn to play in their positions, support and encourage each other, and pull in the same direction to achieve a good result. Healthy competition allows players to see the value of commitment and hard work. It also helps them to overcome disappointments and losses, and allows them to celebrate the wins and gain confidence!
4. Socialising and fitness
Joining a netball team means a bunch of instant new friends, and a sense of belonging to a team and a club. Kids from all across Singapore take part in ANZA Netball, so students from many different schools can mix and mingle. Sessions include a range of skills, fitness and strategy, increasing your child’s agility, problem-solving skills, coordination, ball skills, cardio fitness and strength.
