We run a Netball club for both girls and boys in Year 5 and 6 from September to March on Wednesdays. The club takes place in terms 1-4 and runs from 3.15-4.30 pm. In addition, in term 6 we also run Netball club for Year 4 and 5 from 3.15-4.45pm in order to teach players some basics of the game before September. Currently the club is run by Mrs Johnson, who is well assisted by Mrs Black, Mrs Lan and Mrs Hancock.
Netball is a popular growing sport and is a fun, fast and skilful team game. We teach Bee Stingers netball at primary level (previously known as High 5s) because players have to rotate positions regularly and this encourages versatility and flexibility. In club we teach a variety of different drills to enhance fitness and netball skills, followed by game play to put into practice what has been learnt.
We arrange regular competitive matches and enter an annual Tonbridge tournament 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 or been in the top 3 places in both the local Kent School Games tournament and a smaller tournament for our local collaboration of schools several times in recent years.
