Sporting Schools Program
Netball Queensland is encouraging Queensland Primary Schools to get involved in the Sporting Schools Suncorp NetSetGO program!
The national program was launched in July 2015 by the Australian Sports Commission to replace the Active After-School Communities program, and aims to engage more children in sport-based activity within schools. Sporting Schools will engage more than 850,000 children across Australia in what will be the country’s largest school-based participation program.
Sporting Schools Program
The netball product on offer through Sporting Schools is Suncorp NetSetGO.
Suncorp NetSetGO is Netball Australia’s only junior entry netball program. It has been developed to provide children with the best possible learning and playing experience to develop a positive introduction to netball, ensuring enjoyment and continued participation. It can be delivered and tailored to suit the age and needs of students via the three different tiers
‘Net’ Tier (Prep-Grade 2) students will learn netball related fundamental motor skills with fun games, music and activities.
‘Set’ Tier (Grades 3-4) students will take part in modified games and activities with a focus on fun and teamwork.
‘GO’ Tier (Grades 5-6) is ideal for teachers that have inter-school teams that need assistance in coaching skills, teamwork and game tactics.
Sporting Schools Suncorp NetSetGO program will be delivered by accredited netball coaches before, during and/or after school using resources designed specifically for different age groups and abilities. The program is run over four consecutive weeks, with each session being one (1) hour long, and with the same group of participants for the entire four-week program.
