Shine Hotshots (Years 5 to 7)

Netball Development Squads

Designed to inspire primary aged girls and boys, the Shine Hotshots development programme will benefit those who enjoy being involved in this fast moving, sociable team sport.  The Shine Hotshots squad is now part of the Avon Youth League, so training will be on a Thursday with matches taking place on Saturday mornings.

Your fee covers all training and matches.

Your fee is for all sessions from Thursday 22nd April 2021 - Thursday 27th May 2021

We will always run within the COVID-19 guidelines and with this in mind, I'm afraid no parent are allowed in the sports hall during the activity. There are way way sign in/out systems in place which are signposted on arrival with additional cleaning and hand sanitising stations for the children to sanitise their hands when required.

Activity Details

Players will get the chance to improve their technique in all the essential skills through fun games. These skills will be age appropriate as part of a progression through the age groups. 

The focus of the weekly sessions for the squads will include:

  • Attacking (shooting and build up around the D) 
  • Defending (body position and angles) 
  • Movement (footwork and landing with 2 feet)
  • Passing (Chest, bounce and shoulder)
  • Pattern of play 
  • Communication and team work
  • Matches and rules
  • Learning to win and lose

As long as the guidelines allow, each session will end with small sided matches in which the members of the squad will be divided into ability based teams and put their new skills into practice.

In addition to improving the participant’s knowledge of the game and helping them to work as part of a team, sessions will also incorporate fundamental skills such as; 

  • Balance
  • Speed
  • Communication
  • Co-ordination
  • Agility

We will endeavour to plan fixtures against other local clubs of equal ability and experience.  Matches will usually be on a Saturday. (Subject to our opposition's availability). All training and fixtures will take place outdoors at Coombe Dingle Sports Complex.
