If you are currently playing netball for a primary school team or a club outside school, you may be interested in studying netball as part of the Year 8 curriculum.

 

If you have not previously played in a netball team, but have an interest in the sport and would like to give it a go, you can also choose this option. Year 8 Netball is an elective course conducted a semester and is not compulsory for all students. The course is designed for students who have a genuine interest in and commitment to learning about netball.

 

The course consists of four lessons per week as two double lessons, of which one is theoretical. The lessons are conducted by teachers who have considerable experience as players and coaches with the support of Netball SA. There will be opportunities to liaise with some of South Australia’s top players and clubs in mentor partnerships. Students attend these lessons during the normal school day as part of the school’s curriculum. The course is designed to meet the Achievement Standards for Physical Education in the Australian Curriculum.

 

There is an annual fee of $100 to be paid if a student is accepted into the program, to help pay for associated costs of running the course.

 

It is expected that students will be involved in the school’s sports program and represent the school in the State-Wide Zone Knock Out Competition and attend their lessons regularly throughout the year. Attendance is expected to be at 93%.

 

Students who elect to study Netball will not study Physical Education as a separate subject in Year 8.
