The aim of all of our classes is for your child to have FUN! We review our class plans regularly to ensure we are catering for all skill levels of the children. We also review which activities are the best mix of learning and fun.
Little Shooters (2.5 – 3.5 Years)
The Little Shooters class has been designed to introduce your child to the skills used in netball. Their physical abilities are developed by using gross motor skills, which use whole body movements like running, jumping, balancing, throwing and catching. We also encourage social skills, like sharing and taking turns. We use balloons, hoops and all sorts equipment to make it a fun and safe learning environment.
Mini Shooters (3.5 – 5 Years)
The Mini Shooters class has been developed to build on basic motor skills and use them as a platform to learn more netball specific skills, like shooting into a net, changing direction and dodging. Your child will have grown in confidence and will be encouraged to play independently.
Sharp Shooters (5 to 7 Years)
The Sharp Shooters will continue to have lots of fun as they participate in netball specific games to improve greater growth at an individual level. Their social skills will continue to grow as they learn about team work and communication. By introducing specific skills, like the chest pass, bounce pass and shoulder pass, your child’s hand eye coordination will vastly improve.
Super Shooters (7 – 8 Years)
Our Super Shooters begin to handle sport-specific equipment more confidently and fluently and develop team-based skills for mini matches with core rules and strategies for safe play. They will learn about the positions on court and get to play everywhere from Goal Shooter to Goal Keeper! With this versatile approach, our super shooters get to develop the vast range of skills needed in netball.
All of our Little Shooters are rewarded for good sportsmanship and etiquette with weekly stickers. At the end of the term, all children receive a Certificate to reward their hard work, enthusiasm and team spirit. This positive recognition helps develop confidence and lasting commitment to sport. And it’s all in the name of fun!
At Little Shooters we believe that fun comes first! That is why our coaches are not only netball experts, but they are also enthusiastic, energetic & excellent at communicating with kids (oh and have the patience of a saint when needed! ).
Little Shooters coaches have played netball to different levels from clubs socially to competitive leagues, from County to the International stage! But more importantly they all have a passion for coaching and extensive experience of working with & coaching young kids! They embody our company values for fun, hard work, enthusiasm and team spirit. We want them to be big positive role models for all of our Little Shooters!
