High 5 is the massively popular entry game of netball. It’s a great way for kids to get active, enjoy themselves and make new friends. It’s designed specifically for children, aged 9-11, and uses fun and variety to get them into the game, polish skills and aid fitness.

High 5 can be for mixed or single-sex teams with a maximum of two boys on court at any one time.  A key part of High 5 is players rotating round positions. This means that all young people get to experience every position on court and makes for fitter more adaptable players as they get older.



Winning The Ball: Essential Defending Skills Workshop

Date: 28th November 2016

Time: 6pm – 9pm

Cost: Affiliated £25/Non-affiliated £35

Venue: Westfield Academy, Stiby Road, Yeovil, BA21 3EP

Application closing date: 21st November 2016

This workshop will examine how coaches can develop defensive practices that are both variable and relevant in a game context to ensure that players are encouraged to make decisions on how, where and when to force errors and/or turnovers.  Coaches will be introduced to the principles of defending and will have the opportunity to observe and analyse performance.  Through this process coaches will develop their questioning technique encouraging the player to make considerations and effective decisions based on the cues that are happening around them.


By the end of the workshop, a coach should be able to:

  • construct defensive focused practices that enable players to make effective decisions
  • design appropriate and effective questions that change players’ behaviour
  • organise a practice so it meets the needs of all players
