In netball we aspire to be skilful, committed, dedicated, resilient players individually and as a team. We will play fairly but competitively to gain and increase our knowledge in netball. “Train hard, play hard”.

Kia ora keen netballers, it’s great to kick start another challenging and successful season of netball with our muster/day camp for both Juniors (Saturdays) and Seniors (Sundays plus invited Juniors only to trial for Premier teams).

– UNISS will be held. I invite you to support our Premier Netball Team at this awesome event.

– Team Mentors are there to support and assist you. They are your number one supporter and are at Minogue Park most Saturdays to be available for you.

More information will be posted on our netball website to keep you updated with all netball events.

– The Netball Committee are dedicated volunteers passionate in working with our young women to sustaining a robust successful player-centred netball programme. Netball continues to be the most played sport in our school and it is only right that we dedicate time and effort to developing a player centred philosophy in the pursuit of excellence. We strive to provide quality player-centred coaching which maximises the potential of each player and progressively moulds that potential into competitive winning teams. If you would like to be involved and share your wisdom and knowledge, we would love to have your input.

I look forward to your enthusiasm and encouraging support at netball. Blessings and have an awesome season.

Sue Farrell

Chairperson, SHGC Netball Committee
