Year 5/6 High 5’s Netball Championship
25 March from 9:30 am - 2:30 pm
The Year 5/6 High 5s Netball Championships will take place at Netherhall School.
We will be holding two competitions on the same day, one in the morning (9.30am – 11.30am) and one in the afternoon (12.30– 2.30pm), please select below which competition you wish to enter.
The two winning A Team schools from the morning competition and the two winning A Team Schools from the afternoon competition will go through to the NGB County Finals TBC.
In order to enter the B Competition you must enter into the A Competition with a different team.
- Matches will be played to England Netball High 5 rules. This is the same as 7 a side netball with the following exceptions – Size 4 ball, Pass or shoot within 4 seconds, 5 players on court that rotate after each half and game. Posts are 9ft, when marking the player with the ball they must be 1m away and make one jump as the ball is released (arms must not be out stretched)
- Teams are to do a coin toss up to decide which team takes the first centre pass and the other team chooses which end they wish to shoot in first. Please try and do this in advance of each game
- There should only be a maximum of 2 boys on the court for each team. The squad can include more than 2 boys and they should rotate as per the rules. The exception to this is when the rotation puts 3 boys on court, then you must replace one with a girl. Please be aware that some teams are all girls
- Please be prepared to umpire
- Guidance on umpiring the footwork rule – If a player takes a 3rd step and has made great effort to do footwork correctly, providing it does not effect the outcome of the game, the umpire can allow play to continue. A player who runs or jumps up and down while in possession of the ball has broken the footwork rule and a free pass is to be awarded to the other team
