Netball Classes for kids
Our Mini Netball Class provides netball for 5-year-olds and up in Leeds and Wakefield. These netball classes for kids are a fun and educational way to introduce your child to the sport. Our mini netball players enjoy learning new skills, taking part in mini-games, and having fun forming new friendships.
Players are split into age groups to maximise engagement and we welcome netball players of all abilities and experience. From complete beginners to those who want extra netball to sit alongside their child’s school and junior netball club training.
In these netball classes for kids, we work on ball-handling skills, footwork drills, movement skills, team building, netball rules and fun gameplay. When it comes to netball rules for kids, these are kept the same as the adult game. We simply break down the rules so they are easy to understand.
Your first mini netball session is free!
