etball is Australia’s most popular women’s sport and Magill School’s most popular sport for girls. Magill currently has many teams that compete in the Eastern Districts Netball Association. We are always looking for new players (no experience necessary). Whilst it is predominantly a female sport, boys are also encouraged to play.
What is Netball?
Netball is a ball sport played by two teams of seven players. Games are played on a rectangular court with raised goal rings at each end.
Players are in specific positions and allowed in certain areas of the court. During general play, a player with the ball can hold onto it for only three seconds before shooting for a goal or passing to another player.
The winning team is the one that scores the most goals. Netball games consist of four 10 minutes quarters with a 2 minute break between each one.
Fees - $80
Uniform – Magill School provide netball uniforms for all players. These uniforms are to be returned at the end of each season. There is a $65 replacement cost for uniforms lost or damaged.
