Netball centre’s work acknowledged
Tokoroa Netball Centre has been recognised by Waikato- Bay of Plenty and Netball New Zealand for management of its year 1-2 Future Ferns programme.
The programme was held over six weeks with 25 happy youngsters, parents and grandparents who attended the final night early this month.
Players received the Netball NZ accredited certificate, a group photo and gifts, and the four trainers were recognised by Netball NZ with their accreditation certificates.
An upgraded programme for year 1-2 of fun, skills and games was introduced by Netball NZ last year and Tokoroa Netball Centre received favourable comments because of the way different sessions have been held.
Each week the programme consisted of warm ups, catching, throwing, jumping, landing, pivoting techniques and warm downs.
Only trained leaders are accredited to run the programme and all Tokoroa Netball Centre Management Group have also received training.
Last Sunday the Tokoroa Netball Centre also hosted the Ngaio Reeves Representative Tournament with schools from Te Awamutu, Maniapoto, Taupo, Otorohanga and Putaruru attending.
The ANZ Future Ferns programme is taking off in Tokoroa.
