WELCOME TO SNTA MINIS

take your FIRST STEPS INTO NETBALL WITH SNTA

 

FOR MINI ATHLETES IN SCHOOLS YEARS 2-4

Shan Netball Training Academy First Steps into Netball Program, has been designed to help develop young athletes in school years 2 and 4.  
Junior sport participation has many benefits, such as contributing to health and wellness by providing increased activity levels and reducing stress, and helping to build a positive self-image.

 It also offers a range of social benefits such as:
• developing life skills (for example, communication, concentration, commitment)
• learning responsibility and discipline 
• learning how to work with others in team environments 
• learning to cope with success and failure 
• developing a sense of community, loyalty and cohesion 
• helping gifted players become aware that they are role models for others.  
  ABILITY 
Players develop both physically and psychologically at different rates and it is important that SNTA providers recognise and accommodate different stages of learning and development. All players must be given the opportunity to reach their potential, regardless of their current level of ability. There are Academy pathways available for some athletes to progress, and we are connected to some amazing sister clubs that can accommodate athletes after years 2 and 4. 
  GENDER
SNTA welcomes the opportunity for boys and girls to participate together, in either single-sex or mixed-gender training sessions. 

 

COACHING

Quality coaching is an essential element in creating a positive experience for players in netball. Coaches have a responsibility to assist in building the confidence, selfesteem and ability of players through their own positive role modeling and equitable treatment of all participants
