On Wednesday 25 July at the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show in Builth Wells, Welsh Netball launched a brand-new programme for children aged 3-6 called ‘netball tots®.’ The programme, aimed at developing the physical literacy of young children, is fronted by a charming netball character called Bib. Bib guides little netball players on their first journey…
Shwmae, I’m Bib,
Welcome to the world of netball tots! I’m here to guide you on your first netball journey and introduce you to a world of netball adventure.
Information about getting involved with netball tots, whether as a participant, or as a deliverer, can be found on the right…
Netball tots® is Welsh Netball’s brand-new programme for 3-6 year olds. Netball tots deliverers are provided with all the tools required to deliver fun and engaging sessions to young girls and boys. The programme is fronted by a charming netball character called Bib, who will guide little netballers on their first journey into the world of netball: from their first pass of the ball onwards.
Whilst it’s very important for us to develop netballers for the future, we want to ensure that all young people who take part in netball gain the motivation, confidence and physical skills to have a lifetime enjoyment of sport. Netball tots will aid the development of ‘Physical Literacy’ and provide the platform for young people to engage in a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age.
The complete set of resource cards includes 10 different ‘adventures’ to take your participants on, with each adventure linked to a specific netball theme. The pack also contains a starter supply of sticker books and stickers so that you can reward your participants at each session.
Deliverers get their own netball tots t-shirt and a space on our orientation workshop, which are all included in the price. The orientation workshop will provide you with an introduction to netball tots and the concept of physical literacy. It will also provide you with the confidence to deliver netball tots sessions using the resources through practical application. Attendance at an orientation workshop is compulsory within 6 months of purchase.
Anyone who has the passion to develop young people’s physical literacy and netball related skills in a safe and fun way. Whether you’re a netball club, school, leisure facility or private business, there’s an opportunity to come on board with netball tots.
