Flinders Netball Club - 7-10 Year Olds

Net Set Go is non-competitive and is a modified form of netball.

Programs aim to:

  • Allow players to have fun with their friends
  • Experience excitement and enjoyment
  • Experience challenge, achievement, and personal responsibility
  • To use and improve their skills

This is achieved through:

  • warm-up activities
  • skill teaching through skill drills and games
  • matches (as provided by SCNA NetSetGo competition)
  • Appropriately trained officials – coaches & umpires and/or from those volunteers who are not officially qualified but are contributing valuable knowledge to the players.
  • No scores are kept for any game and there are no finals rounds or overall “winning team” for the season – they are all winners for competing & improving.
  • Players must be turning 7 years of age in the year they commence Net Set Go.
  • Players are usually placed in year &/or friendship group teams with consideration also given to skill levels should the number of players involved warrant it.

  • Coaches and / or managers may be required to umpire their own teams.
  • Players experience all positions on the court during the season, rotating through attack, centre & defence thirds.
  • Records of player rotations are kept by coach to ensure that each player not only plays through all positions but receives equitable game time.
  • Players may play in more than one position during the game (e.g., GK & GD). If required to play more than one position, where possible they will remain in the same area i.e., Attack, Mid Court, Defence.

Important Points to Note:

  • In response to the lowering of Net Set Go age from 8 to 7 years, girls or boys turning 7-10 years are offered the opportunity to participate in Net Set Go programs without the pressure of full competition as per the Children in Sport recommendations from the Australian Sports Commission. Players may or may not have completed any time in earlier Net Set Go programs and this provides an introduction to the sport of netball. Boys are able to participate in the outdoor netball competitions up to the age of 12 years in a mixed team.
  • Score sheets are provided so all players learn the sign-on process. Scores may be kept of the game however no official scores are recorded on the SCNA database or website. No finals are conducted and SCNA provides an end-of-season round robin competition and breakup for all teams.
  • The relative stages of physical development of players will determine how quickly their netball skills advance. All players should be playing across the court in all positions during the season as there is no pressure on teams to win. Individual and team development is of prime consideration at this level of netball.
