ESF Wildcats Netball - Progression


Age Range

Beginners netball class (NE1)

5 - 6 years

An introductory level class helping players learn key skills related to netball through fun games and activities.  Ideally suited to players who are new to the game. Upon successful completion of this course most players would typically look to advance their netball to the next 'Improver' level.


Age Range

Improvers netball class (NE2)

7 - 8 years

Suited to players with some previous netball experience at a basic level, the Improvers class will build on key fundamental netball skills and introduce slightly more complex challenges for young players, all through the medium of fun and play.  More physical work is required of the players at this level.


Age Range

Advanced netball class (NE3)

9 years +

This course is for older and more experienced players that have developed their netball skills to a competent level and wish to develop their understanding of the game further.  Advanced netball classes not only develop a higher level of skills and abilities, but also introduce players to game rules and basic tactical understanding of how to play in netball matches.
