Through playing Netball as an extra-curricular sport we aim to maximise talent and performance through the development of core skills, tactical knowledge and games sense, alongside positive attitudes which value respect, commitment, determination and team work.
NAIS Pudong encourages pupils of all abilities to enjoy netball, whether it is at recreational or team level. Although we strive for excellence both in performance and attitude, we cater for all students regardless of their level.
Four age groups operate in total, teams compete at U11, U13, U15 and U19 age groups in CISSA, SISAC and ACAMIS Sports Leagues so there are plenty of opportunities for players to compete against other local international schools.
During the 2012/2013 Netball season the Pudong Tigers performed extremely well in these leagues, all teams achieved 2nd place at their respective end of season tournaments. We look forward to seeing our teams once again achieve great success this year.
A member of staff manages and coaches each Netball team. All coaches have a good level of playing and coaching experience, with suitable AENA coaching and umpiring qualifications.
It is our aim to provide every student in Years 7 to 9 with the opportunity to represent the school in Netball fixtures. We field teams in the CISSA league and SISAC leagues where we play against other international schools in Shanghai and surrounding provinces.
Fixtures are played throughout the all terms in a competitive and sporting spirit. Teams play a strong and well established fixture list, which is becoming more competitive as Netball at the school gains strength.
We also host and attend regular tournaments which involve a full day’s schedule of competitive games.
We offer positional specific master classes with specialist coaches throughout the year, as well as ‘Netball conditioning’ sessions which are open to all players throughout the Spring Term. These focus on core skills and techniques as well as working on various aspects of fitness related to netball. In addition, we have a school conditioning coach who will support or establish fitness programmes specific to the individual and their sport.
We encourage and create opportunities and pathways for individuals to develop and achieve further honours within their sport by joining local clubs and leagues.
