Netball

Netbal

Everyone knows the benefits of playing sport. It gets you active and away from screen based activities.  That is why Jeffreys Bay Primary School places great emphasis on regular physical exercise.  The majority of our girls choose netball as their sport, as it offers more than just the physical benefits.

Netball is a team sport where girls are exposed to everyday challenges like hard work, decision making and perseverance. Win or lose, they learn to deal with their emotions and how to practice self-control.

Netbal by Laerskool Jeffreysbaai word aangebied en geniet vanaf 0/7 tot 0/13. Daar is twee spanne by elke ouderdomsgroep. Ons beskik tans oor 3 netbalbane – die A-baan is in 2018 opgeknap en spog met ‘n splinternuwe oppervlak, pawiljoen en heining. Ons het entoesiatiese afrigters wat gereeld kursusse bywoon om op datum te bly met die nuutste afrigtingsnorme, netbalreëls en regulasies. Ons lê klem daarop om die beste moontlike afrigting te gee en maak gereeld gebruik van ervare buite-afrigters.

Die 0/7 tot 0/9 spanne fokus hoofsaaklik op basiese balvaardighede, voetwerk, en liggaamsbeheer. Basiese spelpatrone word vasgelê en vorm die grondslag van hulle netbaltoekoms. Hulle neem deel aan Mini-netbalfeeste wat help om ‘n liefde vir die sport te kweek. Dogters kry hier die geleentheid om verskillende posisies te speel sonder die druk van wen of verloor.

Our u/10 to u/13 teams participate in league matches, sport’s days and tournaments. We are privileged to have an annual sport’s tour where the A-teams travel to the Western Cape to compete against competitive schools. Our u/12 & u/13 teams participate in the “Challenge” competition where Primary Schools compete for the overall Eastern Cape title. We are very proud to say that we have won the title numerous times and represented the Eastern Cape in the SASN tournament during the June/July holidays.

The u/12 & u/13 players also have the opportunity to display their individual skills when they try out for the Eastern Province Provincial teams. Jeffreys Bay Primary is very proud of all the players that have been chosen for these teams.

In 2018 we hosted the first u/12 Aloe Cup netball tournament where regional schools were invited to participate in this prestigious event. We were blessed with many sponsors which made it an unforgettable day for players, coaches and parents. We had such a wonderful response from participating schools that it was decided to make it an annual tournament.

Laerskool Jeffreysbaai kan met trots sê ons het ‘n passie vir netbal.
