ANZ futureFERNS Age Groups

  • year1

    Introduces Netball to 5-6 year olds. The aim is to develop fundamental movement and basic Netball skills. Playing 4 v 4 allows the players to pass, catch and shoot from day one.

  • year3

    ANZ futureFERNS Year 3 & 4 is designed to be fast and fun, maximising participation.

  • year5

    Netball continues to be modified for this age group. Throughout the 2016 season, 33 Netball Centres will pilot the 6 v 6 game to allow NNZ to determine the most suitable format for this age group.

  • year7

    Players have developed a considerable understanding of the game, and are now playing seven-a-side. The emphasis is on converting fundamental movement skills to foundation Netball skills which are essential for success in any sport.
