What is Suncorp NetSetGO?
Suncorp NetSetGO is Netball Australia’s only junior entry netball program. It provides children (boys and girls) from 5 to 10 years with a positive introduction to netball, incorporating skill activities, minor games, music, dance and modified matches.
NetSetGO focuses on learning fundamental movement skills and building overall motor skills. The program is delivered in a fun and safe environment and is coordinated by accredited coaches to ensure all participants have a quality experience.
How does it work?
In 2018, the Suncorp NetSetGO program will consist of three tiers – Net (5-6 year olds), Set (7-8 year olds) & GO (9-10 year olds).
Tier one – Net:
In this component, participants will learn fundamental motor and netball skills (like shoulder passes, pivots and shooting) through simple activities.
Tier two – Set:
In this component, kids will focus on refining their movements and skills through activities, minor games and modified sport. Participants will learn confidence in bounce passes, lobs, intercepts and throw-in strategies.
Tier three – GO:
This tier looks at specific skill development and refining motor control. Modified games will be played (you can find the rules here), and participants will learn a series of attack and defence strategies.
What do participants get?
All registered Suncorp NetSetGO participants receive a Size 4 netball, a Suncorp NetSetGO T-shirt, a Healthy Habits activity book and Suncorp Super Netball collectable player cards. Participants are also eligible to enter exclusive competitions.
