Modified Game 8&9yo’s

NGCNA – Modified Game for 8 & 9 year olds for 2015

Netball Australia and Netball Queensland have now abolished what was once called the ‘Nova” competition. It is now called the Modified Game.

Our club will put together teams with players aged 8 (born 2006) and 9 (born 2005).

No teams will have any players turning 5, 6 or 7 in their teams (please refer to Modified and Net Set Go games for these age groups).

Teams may be mixed of players turning 8 & 9.

Teams will go onto a “draw” and each week teams will turn up to their court per their draw.

Netball Skills Coaching

NGCNA will supply a coach to each court. This coach along with the two club team coaches will run a 20 minute skills and drills session.

These sessions will be written by NGCNA Coaching Convenor and implemented each week by coaches appointed by NGCNA Coaching Convenor.

At the end of the 20 minute session, teams will play 4 x 8 minute quarters

This will run from week 1 (22nd March) through to week 15 and then teams will participate in a Modified Game Break up on the 23rd August.

Team coaches will follow the program set out and are taught the correct way of teaching these younger players by the NGCNA Coach.  The Team coach will also umpire the game at the end of the session.

Sessions will be 20 minutes of Modified Game drills/skills followed by 4 x 8 minute quarters.

Parents / Spectators are to be on the sideline of the court only please.
