Year 3 & 4 

The focus for this age group is learning basic skills in a modified game of 5 v 5, using two-thirds of a Netball court. Mother Earth futureFERNS Year 3 & 4 is designed to be fast and fun, maximising participation and touches of the ball. With modified equipment and less players on the court, in 5 v 5 the game is less complicated. Five players in each team and rotating positions ensures everyone gets an equal chance to develop their skills.

  • Up to 10 week programme
  • 5v5
  • 7 players maximum
