Suncorp NetSetGo is Australia’s official starter program for girls and boys aged 5 – 10. It is a chance to learn the netball basics, get active and make some friends. For many children this will be the first time they have picked up a netball or put on a bib. It’s a learning experience and a lot of fun!
At Kingborough Netball Association (KNA) our NetSetGo program is run by our NetSetGo Coordinator Lisa Wheeldon and her team of assistants from Kingston Blues and Kingborough Tigers Netball Clubs.
Lisa has a wealth of knowledge, having coached the Tasmanian State 15u Netball team and also coaches the Kingston Blues Netball Club 19u team in the Tasmanian State League competition.
The sessions are designed to learn the basics of netball and build on participants skills through fun ball games conducted throughout the program. Match play games occur towards the end of the program once foundation skills have been developed.
How does NetSetGo work?
NetSetGo is divided up into three tiers: Net, Set and Go. Where you start depends on your age and netball experience.
Net is for 5 to 6 year olds. It is all about picking up basic movement skills. This involves a lot of running, catching and ball games.
Set is for 7 to 8 year olds. It is a bit more netball focussed. This involves practice matches, footwork and passing.
Go is for 9 to 10 year olds. You will build on the fundamentals learnt in the Net and Set sessions, play netball matches and some more advanced drills.
In 2020 KNA will be running two dedicated NetSetGo sessions.
Session 1 will be a Set session aimed at girls and boys in Grade 2 Only. This will be the pathway for players to then progress to playing in the Grade 3/4 roster later this year. This session will run on Mondays from 5pm to 6pm commencing on 16 March 2020 and concluding on 18 May 2020, please note no sessions will be held during the school holidays.
Session 2 will be a Net session aimed at girls and boys in Prep and Grade 1 only. This session will commence in September and coincide with our Spring Primary School Roster, registrations for this session will open closer to the commencement of the sessions.
All sessions are held at the Kingborough Sports Centre, Indoor Court 1.

Once registrations are open you will find the registration and payment option for NetSetGo available here.
The program consists of 2 tiers – “Net” and “Set”. The ages mentioned with each tier below are not strict, more of a guideline for centres and coaches. The tiers are briefly explained in the image.
