Please note that this is a very popular program and we are limited by court space and coach availablity.   Therefore, it is strongly advised that registration forms are returned promptly.  Only those who have returned their registration form and payment will be accepted and registrations will close when full. Others will be placed on a waiting list for inclusion in the program if a place becomes available. It is inappropriate to arrive at the courts with a child expecting to play without being registered as this is distressing for the child (and us).

Information about the G3 program:

Our JuniorNet G3 program is a junior development program which is based on the Netball Australia NetSetGo! Tier 2 "SET" program. Similar programs include AFL (Auskick), Hockey (Minkey Hockey) and basketball (Ozball). It incorporates netball specific skill development via activities appropriate to the age and abilities of children in Year 3, and round robin game play with the emphasis participation and FUN.

The guidelines of the G3 program are:

  • Children join the program as individuals, not in teams.
  • Players are arranged into groups with 2-3 coaches / group.
  • Coaches are generally secondary school netballers / Boroondara Power representative team players who are also learning the skills of coaching.
  • Each session is divided into 3 parts: warm up, motor skills and a mini game.
  • Modified rules & equipment as follows:
