What is NetSetGo?

Suncorp NetSetGo is Australia’s official starter netball program for boys and girls. It has been developed to provide children from 5 to 10 years with the best possible learning and playing experience to develop a positive introduction to netball, ensuring enjoyment and continued participation.
Kids of any ability or experience are introduced to a number of fundamental motor and netball skills in a netball environment. It’s a chance to learn the netball basics, get outside and make some friends. Participants will experience fun and success by participating in age and developmentally appropriate activities and minor games that foster cooperation, teamwork and the ability to listen to and follow directions. Children learn and practice the foundation netball skills of throwing, catching, shooting and running. Sessions combine a structured, fun-based skills development and age appropriate match play. 
The focus is on maximum involvement, being active and having fun. Children of all abilities get an equal chance to participate. It’s a learning experience. And a lot of fun. One week it might be passing drills and ball games, next it could be shooting and practice matches. All Suncorp NetSetGO sessions are led by a friendly netball coach, using equipment built specially for kids.

What level you start playing netball at depends on a few things: how old you are, how fit and strong you are, and how much netball you’ve played before. Here’s a rough guide of what our NetSetGo levels look like.
Net     Little Hubs Netball Program (Born after 2016) It’s all about picking up basic movement skills. Get ready to run a lot, catch a lot, and play a lot of ball games.
SetGO      U9s Team (Born 2012-14) It’s more netball-focused. You’ll play modified matches, learn to pivot and work on those lightning passes. There are no finals at this level. We incorporate the Go level and prepare our little netballers in readiness for U11s.
We deliberately wait until Set (Under 9’s Team) to introduce modified netball games. That means kids start playing matches from around seven years-old. It’s important to remember that kids aren’t just small adults. Their bodies are still developing, and we don’t want to make things too difficult at this early age. The rules and equipment have been modified to help kids play more easily (and enjoy the game).
