What do Netball4Life Clinics include?*
Netball4Life clinics are all about fun, fitness, friends and inclusion for all, and our clinic programs are designed to reflect this. Our general daily clinics include a warm-up, general ball and footwork skills, basic attacking and defending skills, modified games, match play, and a cool down. Our specialist daily clinics include a warm-up, general ball and footwork skills, positions specific skills (e.g. shooting, defending, centre court), modified games, match play, and a cool down. A full clinic plan will be presented to parents prior to all of our clinics kicking off. Participants will receive a free netball gift at the end of each clinic.

What time do I need to be at the Netball4Life Clinic?*
The Netball4Life Clinics begin at 10am and finish at either 1pm (for kids aged 5-6 years) or 3pm (everyone else). We ask that all participants arrive at 9.30am to check-in which includes having your child’s name marked off and receiving a name tag. A brief introduction will also be given to parents and participants at 9.45am which we encourage all to attend. We have a presentation 15 minutes before the close of each clinic which parents are quite welcome to attend. We ask that all parents are prompt in picking their child up at the completion of the clinic.

What should I bring to the Netball4Life Clinic?
Food – It is up to each participant to bring their own food. Please have enough food to last the day. There will be a break for recess and lunch.
Drink bottle – You will need a drink bottle. We also suggest that you bring a spare bottle of water just in case. Drink bottles can be refilled on site. We suggest that you make sure your drink bottle is marked with your name.
What should I wear to the Netball4Life Clinic?
We ask that all participants wear comfortable training clothes (e.g. t-shirt and shorts/leggings/tracksuit pants) and suitable footwear (e.g. joggers). We also ask that participants take off all their jewellery and leave it at home. Hair should be tied back firmly and not be impeding the face/vision. Please don't bring any valuables with you. Lastly, we also ask that each participant makes sure they bring something warm to wear in the event of really cool weather.
How are groups allocated at the Netball4Life Clinic and can I be with my friends?
Groups are generally allocated based on age, but playing level is also taken into consideration. There is a space on the registration form to indicate playing level. If you would like to be placed in the same group as a friend there is also a space on the registration form to indicate this. We will try our best to accommodate each participants request, but cannot guarantee it will be possible. Netball4Life is all about making new friends anyway!
Who will be coaching my child at the Netball4Life Clinic?
All Netball4Life coaches have at least Foundation level coaching accreditation through Netball Australia. All Netball4Life coaches have also completed their working with children check. Where possible we employ home grown coaches so that a rapport can be built with participants and so that Netball4Life is giving back to the local netball community. If you want more information on the coaches involved we suggest you click through to the Coach Bios page.
What happens in the case of an injury, illness or emergency?
There is always either a Netball4Life staff member or a staff member of the host venue who has a current First Aid Certificate on site. You can rest assured that in the case of an injury, illness or emergency your child will be in good hands. In the case of any injury, illness or emergency the emergency contact that is provided on the entry form will be contacted.
Can parents stay and watch the Netball4Life Clinics?
They sure can! Parents are more than welcome to stay and watch as the clinics offer a great learning and observing opportunity. If you’d prefer not to watch and have the day to yourself, please be prompt in picking your child up at the close of the clinic.
What is the cancellation policy?
Netball4Life has a 48hr cancellation policy. Cancellations received outside of 48 hours of the clinic date will be eligible for a full refund. Cancellations received within 48 hours of the clinic date will only be eligible for a 50% refund. In the event of injury or illness (and on presentation of a medical certificate) you will be refunded your full registration fee. Substitutions are allowed as long as we are notified by email of the change (email@example.com).
