Rules for Year 1-8 transitioning through futureFERNS netball

Especially for those playing within our junior netball satellites competitions who are transitioning into the modified futureFERNS netball game variations for Year 1&2 (4v4), Year 3&4, (5v5), Year 5&6 (6v6) and Year 7&8 (7v7)...

Please find attached a handy dandy snapshot of the rules for each game.  Our aim is to help all coaches, managers, parents, supporters and players to stay on top of your game.

Also included is an outline of the key differences for those transitioning from the 6v6 game to the 7v7 game and how to assist players, parents and coaches ahead of 7-a-side trial-time to start the netball season.

All the best out there on court!

Should you have any questions please consult your individual Satellite representatives in the first instance otherwise feel free to email Netball Central Zone's Junior Netball Development Officer Irene van Dyk who will be happy to help -
