By March 28, 2007No Comments

The Maroondah Indoor Sports Centre is excited to be launching a brand new netball development program designed by Netball Australia.

Councillor Alex Makin said the ‘Net Set Go’ junior development program is a national concept which replaces the former FunNet program and commences on Thursday 19 April.

“For some time now parents have been asking for greater development opportunities for their children within the sport of netball, as well as value for money, better program structure, trained accredited coaches, and above all the opportunity for their child to take the next step. This new development program provides all this and more,” said Cr Makin.

“Net Set Go has been developed to provide children from the age of 5 to 11 years with the best possible learning and playing experience,” said Cr Makin.

“Importantly, the program will enable them to gain a positive introduction to the sport of netball, learning the basic skills and game rules that will allow them to develop and continue their participation in the sport,” said Cr Makin.

“The Net Set Go program will benefit many of Maroondah’s budding netball players by enabling participants to experience personal achievement in terms of competence enhanced self-esteem, team building, and skill development in a fun environment,” said Cr Makin.

The Net Set Go junior development program offers appropriate skill teaching in a sequential program, leading to the participation in Netta Netball matches using modified rules, all under appropriately trained/accredited coaches and umpires.

The Net Set Go junior netball program commences Thursday 19 April. Places are limited and registrations close very soon.

The cost of the program is $57 per child and all participants will receive a special Net Set Go branded netball, activity book, and a sports bag.

To register your child please call Maroondah Indoor Sports Centre on 9298 4487 between 9:30am and 5pm on weekdays.
