Benefits of Netball for Kids


Netball is a ball sport played by two teams of seven players. It is predominantly played by women and is still in the process of shaking off the stereotypical image of being “just a girl’s sport”. It is ideal for men and people of all ages too thus terrific for young children.

One of the physical benefits of playing netball is it improves the player’s hand-eye co-ordination so we become more attentive to the surrounding. Playing netball can also improve body flexibility and nimbleness from all the jumping and catching the ball.

Not just physical, netball also contributes to the mental benefits of the players with boosting confidence especially body image. It also boosts teamwork skills and you get to spend more time playing with your friends.

So, why not teach our kids how to play netball from a young age to benefit them both physically and mentally.
