South Waikato News - - SPORT - By HEATHER WIL­LIAMSON

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.
