Netball Specialist Program

Dear Student/Carer

Esperance Anglican Community School, in conjunction with Netball WA, are pleased to announce that we are offering a Netball Specialist Program for Years 7 – 10 in 2018.

Students involved in the program will be exposed to both practical and theory lessons during allocated class time, and compete in carnivals and interschool games during the netball season. Students accepted into the program will have the opportunity to learn the following:

Practical Theory
  • Skill development
  • Individual skills (ball handling, footwork, throwing and catching etc.)
  • Group skills (transitional strategy, timing, driving, communication etc.)
  • Strategies and tactics
  • Umpiring
  • Fitness
  • Coaching
  • Pre-season training
  • Game and training preparation
  • Nutrition
  • Game play strategy and tactics
  • Injury prevention and management
  • Rules and roles of the game
  • Inclusive practice
  • Coaching (roles, leadership, styles)
  • Body systems

Students will be trialled and selected based on the following criteria:

  • Athletic ability (netball experience and potential)
  • Behaviour (all subjects, attitude and attendance)
  • Grades (all subjects, with significance on Health and Physical Education) - a copy of your child’s last report must be given along with the ‘expression of interest’ form
  • Commitment (to school, the program and future success)

Esperance Anglican Community School will be hosting two athletes from the West Coast Fever side and holding a skills session for the purpose of selecting those students who meet the above criteria.

The trial for 2018 will be held on the 25th August 2017, at the Esperance Anglican Community School from 1-2:30pm.

Please fill out the details on the following page, attach the most recent school report and send to Sharelle Walter by the 18th August 2017 :

With best wishes.
