Welcome toNetball Wellington Centre
Year 6 Comp (7v7 head-start)
In 2022 we introduced a Year 6 Comp in Term 4 as part of our competitions with the specific purpose to help Year 6 players moving into the Year 7 game. Unfrtunately, this did not proceed in 2023 but we will be offering it again in term 4 of 2024.
Our Year 6 Comp aims to provide a 7v7 head start, introducing the transition from six to seven positions on the court.Year 6 play 6-a-side netball with Cs, Ds and As.Year 7 play 7-a-side netball played featuring seven less-familiar positions made up of GK, GD, WD, C, WA, GA and GS.
Here's an opportunity for young players to enjoy netball in the off-season yet give a different game format a go and familiarise themselves with each position before next season begins. Also a good way to guide players and coaches into the 7v7 differences and further helps ease uncertainty prior to trial time.
Games are 39 minutes duration - 4x8 minute quarters, 2min, 3min, 2min breaks with 11mins between games .Game times are 4.00pm and 4.50pm.Mixed, all-female and all-male teams welcome.
