We start at 3:45pm so players from distant schools such as Milton and Petrie Terrace are able to make it for the start of the session, and there’ll be a bit of mucking around today with sorting out the teams.
There'll be a session next Monday (17 Oct), even though it’s a pupil-free day for schools.
CLOTHING: Players should wear comfortable clothes and footwear suitable for running around (school uniforms are fine), and don't forget a hat, sunscreen and a full water bottle (or 2!).
WET WEATHER: If we have to postpone a session due to rain we'll post to the Club's website by 3pm and we'll also try to SMS as well. We'll generally go ahead because there are plenty of covered areas near the courts, but if we do postpone we'll extend by a week to Mon 5 Dec.
T-SHIRT: Each player will receive a NetSetGO t-shirt and netball toward the end of the season and we'll place the order late this week so please double-check the t-shirt size at the bottom of the confirmation email and update it if necessary by replying to this email or see me at the first session (purple Club shirt and straw hat). Repeat participants can pay for a second pack if they want.
CONTACTS: Email Registrar Ian MacColl at email@example.com with any registration questions or problems, or email Vice President Meg Purtell at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about activities and sessions.
All the best with Term 4 NetSetGO and we look forward to seeing you at the first session.
Online registrations are now open for NetSetGO after school on Monday afternoons in Term 4 (10 Oct to 28 Nov).
Netball is the most popular team sport in Australia and The Gap Netball Club is the biggest in Queensland.
The Club is running NetSetGO at Hilder Road State School at 3:45-4:45pm for 8 weeks from Monday 10 October, including pupil-free day on 17 October, and finishing with a sausage sizzle after the last session on 28 November.
NetSetGO is an introductory program for 5 to 10 year old girls and boys that teaches netball basics and develops general motor skills in a fun and safe way.
The $90 fee covers insurance and a participant pack, and the fee is reduced to $15 for repeat participants who don’t want another pack.
Repeat participants include 2016 NetSetGO participants from the Club's Term 1 program or DPNA's mid-year program, and also players from The Gap and other clubs who played in DPNA's 8s to 10s 2016 Modified Rules season.

To our 14 competitive teams who did not make finals but were able to provide competition each week for your opponents: Thank you and congratulations for the contribution you have made to the lives of players in your team, your participation provided them the opportunity to play this great game for The Gap Netball Club in 2016.
The strength of our junior NetSetGo program leading into 11yrs competitive teams is evident with the number of 11yrs teams making finals in 2016. Thank you to the wonderful volunteer coaches, umpires and managers who offer this program to our young boys and girls providing them with the strong foundation stage upon which they can develop.
Well the Grand Finals are upon us! On Saturday 27th of August we have 14 teams playing across the day. We encourage you to come along to see our teams play. Wear the Gold And Purple (GAP) and come with your cheerleading squads. Morning and afternoon we have GAP teams playing.
At 9:40 watch our 11 year olds fight it out across Divisions 2 (this will be a GAP on GAP game), 3, 4, 5 all the games are in the caged courts.
Follow that up at 10:50 to watch our 12 years Div 2 team play on court 3.
Then at 12:20 we have our 13 years Div 5 team on court 16 and three cadet teams playing a GAP on GAP game for Div 4 on court 5 and Div 7 on court 14.
At 1:50 our Cadets 6 will battle it out on court 5 and Inters 6 on court 9.
If you can only fit in one game, later in the day we have 2 teams playing the 3:20 round. This will be some excellent netball with our Inters in Div 1B and 2 displaying their fast paced games on courts 3 and 8. Come and support your local community netball club! GO GAP GO
