ANZA Netball is a not-for-profit organisation delivering quality netball programmes to girls aged six to 16 years. Our inclusive programme provides opportunities for children of all abilities to play netball in a safe, positive, and encouraging environment. Fair play, respect, skills development, and lots of fun are the cornerstones of our programme. One of the highlights for the ANZA Netball players is building friendships with girls from a range of diverse backgrounds and different schools here in Singapore. The season runs from September to March, excluding certain public and school holidays.
Training takes place on Saturday mornings in the predominantly airconditioned facilities of Tanglin Trust School on Portsdown Road* Nine full-sized netball courts inside and outside ensure our members can play on different surfaces and in different conditions throughout the season. Off season training is available for those who wish to continue playing outside the traditional season, we also offer midweek training for older age group league teams, and the opportunity to participate in a range of tournaments and leagues throughout the year.
The last few years have seen a dramatic transformation with the burgeoning netball environment in Singapore. ANZA Netball has responded by introducing professional coaches, particularly in the older age groups, providing professional first aid services, supporting entry into a variety of netball leagues across Singapore, and also introducing our own tournaments, such as the ANZA Accelerator Series and the ANZA Netball Carnival.
Our programme is run by dedicated parent volunteers who offer their time and skills in a variety of roles, including coaching and assistant coaching, age group, uniform, IT or equipment coordinators, as well as Committee Members. Our volunteer coaches are all encouraged and supported to attend Coaching Netball Foundation Courses, run by Singapore Netball. Interested in getting involved?
