GEAR UP is for children who are new to netball or who have some netball experience. Classes focus on learning and perfecting those basic skills so that the children can play games with assurance and ability.
Yrs 1, 2 and 3 but older children who haven’t played before are welcome too, we will move them up to Aim Higher as soon as they are ready…it won’t be long, they learn fast!
This level is aimed at children with a good experience of playing netball. Classes will re-emphasise basic skills while also building on tactics and more advanced techniques to improve and enhance competitive match play and confidence.
Yrs 4, 5 and 6
If you are unsure about your child's level do get in contact.
Classes in Putney, Battersea, Esher and Twickenham - see timetable for details.
All our coaches are qualified to teach netball and have been chosen for their fun, 'can do' attitude, their passion for netball and their skills in working with children.
All round learning
Each class is a mixture of fun activities and an actual game. Children are mixed up throughout the lesson which gives them the chance to meet loads of new friends as well as play with existing friends.
During netball games, children rotate positions to ensure that they are confident in a number of positions and no child is 'pigeon holed’.
Finally, we are not selective. When we enter tournaments, all are welcome to join us, not just ’the best’. We don't think this is helpful at this early stage in a player's netball career and can put children off if they don't think they are 'meeting the grade’. We want every child to have fun while being the very best netball player they can be.
