Netball 1

Netball

Netball is one of Sweet Valley's major winter sports for girls. The girls are able to begin netball from Grade 1.  In Grade 1 and 2 , the girls concentrate on the basic netball rules and ball skills with the emphasis on enjoyment. From U9, the girls are exposed to match situations. The older girls practise once a week and have a match once a week.  At their practice, these girls hone their netball skills and match strategies.

Each age group has two teams that play league matches throughout the season with other schools nearby. For those girls who do not make these teams, we have social sides that play friendly matches.

At Sweet Valley we are privileged to have good netball facilities. We have at present 6 netball courts. We also have a dedicated team of coaches who are enthusiastic about this sport.

The U13A team has the privilege of going on Winter Tour in July where they play schools in Knysna, Grahamstown and Port Elizabeth. The U13 girls also play a fun match against the school's staff.

Sweet Valley can proudly say that their netball girls display wonderful sportsmanship on and off the netball court.
