Introduction To 7v7 Double Up League

The purpose of this grade is to allow kids who have just moved into Year 7, a chance to learn 7v7 netball in a safe and encouraging environment. Teams should enter this grade if majority of their players are new to 7v7 netball. If your team is made up of Year 8's please enter into one of our Year 8 grades. 

Format of Games: 

Teams will play two x 20-minute games each night.  Games will be back-to-back. Each game will have 10-minute halves with 2-minute break.

The structure of grades could change, depending on how many teams register e.g., Teams could play one x 40-minute game each night.  Each game will have 4 x 10-minute quarters (10, 2 quarter time break, 10, 3 min half time break, 10, 2 10).

Note: Competitions/Grades could be combined, or cancelled due to lack of team registrations.
