The role of the Child is to have fun! Learn new skills! Make friends! Enjoy netball!



Your role as a Parent/Guardian is to encourage your child to have fun and to try their best. Ask your child about what they did in NetSetGO and talk about some of the things they enjoyed the most. Support the coaches, umpires and centre officials so they can make sure all children are able to enjoy their NetSetGO experience. Please do not coach from the sideline, give instructions, or criticise any coach, umpire or official. During a modified game, encourage all players and cheer good play for both teams. Winning is not the focus at this level. Remember that children are given the opportunity to play in all of the netball on court positions, so encourage your child to try out each role. Remember to thank the coaches, umpires and centre officials, and to ensure you abide by the Netball Australia Codes of Behaviour.


Keep in mind why the children are taking part in NetSetGO, and what the research tells us about why children of this age participate in sport. Your role as the Coach is to create a fun, safe, inclusive and positive coaching environment, and be encouraging as you reinforce skills and technique. Understand and respect individual and cultural needs. Facilitate the principles of NetSetGO, especially providing encouragement, and the opportunity for children to build teamwork skills and friendships so they develop confidence in their netball, and themselves. Understand your role in creating and maintaining a ‘Child Safe Environment’. You can explore this further in the Play by the Rules website and online courses at Ensure you abide by the Netball Australia Codes of Behaviour.


Know the modified rules in the Set and GO tiers. Understand the principles behind modifying those rules and work with coaches and parents to support the children as they learn new skills. You have an important on-court role in helping the children develop new skills. Take the opportunity to encourage players and work in conjunction with coaches to reinforce good technique and skills. Be inclusive of all children and parents. Abide by the Netball Australia Codes of Behaviour.
