WHAT IS NetSetGO?
Woolworths NetSetGO is Australia’s official starter program for girls and boys aged 5 to 10. It’s a chance to learn the netball basics while having fun. For a lot of kids, this is the first time they’ll pick up a netball. It’s a learning experience, and a lot of fun.
NetSetGO is divided into three tiers; Net, Set and GO, meaning that your child will learn at a pace that’s right for their age and ability.
Each week your child will take part in skill-based activities, minor games, and modified match play that will help them develop fundamental movement skills, as well as important social skills. Each session will be led by a trained coach, using modified equipment.
WHAT TIER IS RIGHT FOR MY CHILD?
The age brackets below are only a guide. Our NetSetGO coaches will assess the group and tailor the program to the abilities of the children attending. At RISE we offer a program to cover all the Net, Set and GO tiers*
Net is for 5 to 6 year olds and teaches fundamental motor skills through dance, music and games
Set is for 7 to 8 year olds and focuses on refining fundamental motor skills and introducing modified netball matches
GO is for 9 to 10 year olds and focuses on developing netball specific skills through modified match play
The Parkville Netball Association also runs weekly competition games for children at the SET and GO levels. Our program aims to prepare players for these competitions (or 11&U or 13&U Divisions) and will create a team at the appropriate level if numbers allow.
* Tier grouping is dependent on numbers
