U8 program

The under 8 (U8) program is specifically developed for children aged 7 to 8. (born in 2013, 2014).

We introduce Netball through modified games, lots of fun activities that promote ball handling skills and footwork movement. We will join carnivals when available and organize friendly games.

Most importantly is to make new friends and begin to love playing netball.

 

Beginners aged 7 to 8 will join the U8 squad as the level of this age group is on beginners level.

Cost
The program follows the school calendar and the year is divided into 4 terms. Registration is for one term, followed by quarterly renewals. Players can join anytime unless the registration is closed.

The program fee for one term is $270 for 10 sessions of 2 hours. New players have to purchase a SGNA attire. There is no administration fee.

​Program fees will be prorated when you let us know before the start of a term which sessions the player is not able to join. Once joined the first session, full or agreed fees apply. The minimum fee for a term is $210  (7 sessions).

Attire

The Singapore Netball Academy Attire is Red-white in color. The T-shirt is white with our logo printed on the front and the text "Singapore Netball Academy" printed on the back. The shorts are red with our logo printed on the front. The socks are white with SGNA logo on both sides. This attire is mandatory for all players in the academy. The cost of 1 set is $60 to be paid at the first session.

Trial

We do not provide trials classes. Trial classes are very difficult to organize as we need to rent a court and provide coaches. The reality is that we have to decide on a timing that is convenient for everyone where everyone has their own schedule and no one finally is able to attend the trial classes at the same time. The option to join a running program for 1 session is not feasible as this will disturb the program continuously, something we want to prevent as the players in the program have the right to get the full attention of the coaches. Our advice is to watch one of the sessions and try at least for 1 term (10 sessions) to find out if you or your daughter likes Netball.

Venue

Our venue for the U8 programs is Methodist Girls' School (MGS) and when MGS is not available we will use OCBC Arena or Kallang Netball Centre. 

Program calendar

2020 TERM 4 program

COVID-19 edition (with limitations)

 

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions we are not able to conduct our normal programs.  We hope that the restrictions will be (partly) lifted soon with the opening of Phase 3.

Under these restrictions, we will until the Mid December 2020  conduct 1 session per week of 2 hours at Kallang Netball Centre on Saturdays 9am - 11am. 

We have 25 slots available and sign-up for the sessions is on a weekly basis. based on selection criteria players will be selected for one of the sessions or placed on a waitlist. 

If you register your daughter for these sessions, you have to pay 1 term in advance and we will deduct per session of your fee balance. Additionally if the player is new to SGNA and you sign up for a term, you need to purchase the SGNA attire.

in case the restriction are lifted and we return to our normal programs, the fee balance will be used to register for the normal programs.
