When playing netball 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 teamwork. We strive for excellence both in performance and attitude and support students as they gain knowledge and understanding of the game.
Five age groups operate in total, with teams competing in U9, U11, U13, U15 and U19 age groups in CISSA, SISAC and ACAMIS sports leagues and tournaments. There are plenty of opportunities for players to compete against other international schools from Shanghai and Asia. The Pudong Tigers consistently perform extremely well in these leagues, and at their respective end-of-season tournaments.
It is our aim to provide every student in Years 3 to 13 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. The U19 teams have the opportunity to compete in the annual ACAMIS tournament – it is a fantastic experience for all of the students involved.
Fixtures are played throughout each term in a competitive and sporting spirit. Teams play a strong and well-established fixture list, which is becoming more competitive as the popularity of netball at the school and across Shanghai gains strength. We also host and attend regular tournaments which involve a full day’s schedule of competitive games.
