MAT Netball Champions – February 2019

On Tuesday 12th February our mixed Year 5 and 6 High 5 netball teams played their first competitive matches against Parklands Primary.  

High 5 is designed specifically for children aged 9-11 and involves the rotation of positions after each quarter played.  This enables players to try out the different positions of shooter,attack, defence and centre court which are seen in the more well known 7 a side game. 

Both of our teams have been training hard and played exceptionally well in their games.  They showed great teamwork and really encouraged each other on and off of the court.   The final scores were 5-2 and 3-0 to Preston Hedge’s.  

We are now looking forward to our away matches over at Parklands which will take place at the end of March.  Well done to all of our children involved!
