About Net Set GO
The Net Set GO program is delivered through the various netball associations in Australia. Raiders Netball Club is a member of the Redlands Netball Association (RNA) and provides the Net Set Go program for young players.
Net Set GO is divided into three programs – Net, Set and GO, meaning that your child will learn at a pace that’s right for their age and ability (NB: These age brackets are only a guideline for centres and coaches).
The Net program is designed for 5 to 7 year olds and teaches fundamental motor skills through dance, music and games. The Net program involves one weekday training session and is offered in the afternoon at Raiders Netball Club training courts in Thorneside.
Children are registered through the Net Set GO website. The cost is $120 which covers the weekly training sessions, player insurance and includes a participants pack (free training shirt and ball).
Players are encouraged to wear their Net Set GO t-shirt and comfy shorts or skort suitable for running in as well as sneakers. And remember to bring a hat and water bottle.

What Will My Child Learn?
Each week your child will take part in skill based activities and simple games that will help them develop fundamental movement skills, as well as important social skills like team work. Each session will be lead by an accredited coach, using modified equipment.
The skills taught through Net Set GO include:
- Throwing, passing and catching
- Taking off and landing
- Changing direction
- Goal shooting
- Movement skills
- Team work
As children progress through the program they will begin to play simple matches, usually in the “Set” tier with modified net set go rules and modified equipment, ie. shorter hoops. The modified competition for beginner’s netball allows children to learn the flow and purpose of the game without having to adhere to the full netball rules.
