Netball is an exciting, fast and skillful game of fair contest. It is a game in which two teams of seven players each strive to keep or gain possession of the ball.
The team with the ball, through running, jumping, throwing and catching, attempts to move the ball into its goal circle from where a goal may be scored, while the opposing team uses defensive movements and strategies to prevent this and to gain possession. The team with the greater number of goals is the winner of the match.
Come along to netball club to learn how to play and to be part of a team. Will will play against each other and prepare for matches against other schools.
A huge congratulations to the year 6 team who managed to win a Bronze medal and the year 6 district netball competition. It was great to see the cooperation and commitment of the whole team working well together to look like real netball players!
Thank you to all the girls who represented Westacre Middle School at the district netball tournaments. You all played well and worked hard as a team. Over the summer, practise your passing skills ready for the next season. If you wish to play out of school, there is a netball club at the leisure centre every Wednesday.
Year 6 girls have been using the new netball posts on the MUGA to practise their shooting skills before their tournament at Bowbrook House School.
What a huge turnout! We have lots of girls attending netball each Tuesday. Each session has exciting, seeing the girls develop as strong and confident players. They have had the chance to work within their year groups, houses and mixed years. Each time, they have all been supportive of each other. I am looking forward to taking the teams to their district tournaments. More news to follow.
It has been a great term of netball, with lots of skills and games being developed. To finish off 2016, we held a netball house competition and played netball in our Christmas hats.
