We run a Netball High 5’s club for both girls and boys in Year 5 and 6 from September to March on Wednesdays 3.30-4.30pm. In term 6 we also run Netball club for Year 4 and 5 and as the weather is kinder the club runs from 3.30-5.00pm. Currently the club is run by Mrs Johnson (our Finance Officer) and she is assisted by Mrs Eves and Miss Kirk.
Netball is a popular growing sport and is a fun, fast and skilful team game. We teach High 5 netball at primary level because players have to rotate positions regularly and this encourages versatility and flexibility. In club we practise different drills are taught each week to enhance fitness and netball skills, followed by game play to put into practice what has been learnt. Regular competitive matches and tournaments are organised against other local schools and players are selected according to their level of skill and experience. We have had excellent results in our inter-school matches and Stocks Green has won both the local Kent School Games tournament and a smaller tournament for our local collaboration of schools in recent years.
