Netball Australia announced exciting news in September that in a joint venture with the Australian Sport Commission a new online module has been developed called ‘Getting to Know NetSetGO’.
ANZ NetSetGO is recognised as the only introductory program for netball in Australia and is the netball product on offer through the exciting new Sporting Schools program.
But do you actually know what ANZ NetSetGO is and why it’s so important to the future growth of the game?
To help you find out more about ANZ NetSetGO, Netball Australia and the Australian Sports Commission has developed an online module called `Getting to Know NetSetGO’ that’s free and will explain in detail the benefits of teaching young children modified sport.
Sporting Schools is Australia’s largest school-based sports participation programme to help children foster a lifelong interest in sport.
After kicking off in July 2015, Sporting Schools brings together schools and sports to help get Aussie children active in their local communities.
`Getting to Know NetSetGO’ is a fun, interactive module that can be used by anyone – from parents and family members through to teachers, coaches and umpires right throughout the netball community.
The module takes about 20 minutes to complete and participants receive a certificate upon completion.
Netball Australia’s Head of Community Strategy and Netball Development Anne-Marie Phippard said ANZ NetSetGO participant numbers continue to grow every year and the module explains in great detail the benefits of the program.
“These ANZ NetSetGO participants are the future members, coaches, umpires, volunteers and fans of our sport in general,” Phippard said.
“Netball Australia encourages family and friends to gain a greater understanding of how NetSetGO fits in to the Netball Australia Athlete Pathway and why modified sport is so important to young children starting out on their journey.”
NetED is BACK in 2016!
In 2016 Netball NSW is pleased to offer affiliated Associations the opportunity to apply for a grant to cover costs associated with NetEd Coach and Umpire on court sessions plus the new and exciting Connected Clubs & Communities workshop (CCC workshop).
In support of the existing accreditation frameworks, the three-hour educational workshops are designed for coaches and umpires at beginner level, as well as workshops aimed specifically at development level, or higher.
Plus, those Associations who host a NetED workshop can also apply to have a practical ANZ NetSetGO session delivered.
But, you better BE QUICK! NetEd Grant Applications close 5pm AEDT on Friday 20 November. Associations seeking to apply for a grant should speak with their Regional Coordinator and complete the 2016 NetEd Grant form.
