The Broken Hill Netball Association is hosting a Net Set Go Come and Try Night for children who have an interest in learning the basics of the game.
Net Set Go is for kids five to 10 years old who are ready and eager to learn new skills, play more games, and make new friends.
The Come and Try Night is a free event designed to introduce the future netball stars of Broken Hill to the great game through skill work and modified games in a friendly environment.
“The environment in which sportsmanship is important is by teaching kids from a young age and this is a great way to learn netball,’ said BHNA Net Set Go Coordinator, Lucy Clarke,
“It’s really great to have Alyssa (Cadd) helping out as the assistant coordinator. She and some other local representative players will be helping the kids out.”
Lucy said the Come and Try Night and the Net Set Go program in general will be beneficial for youngsters in many ways.
“It’ll be beneficial in allowing them to interact with new people as well as learn communication, teamwork and, really, it’s just all about having fun while doing it.”
“The skills they learn they will take with them and use as they start playing netball when they’re older,” she said Lucy.
“They’ll see how the game can grow and how they’re going to grow. If we can show them that in a supportive environment then that’s what we’re going to do.
“If parents are not sure if netball is their thing then we suggest you come down on Tuesday night for the introduction session and have a look, see what it’s all about and see the great things that are happening in Broken Hill netball.”
