Parents’ Guide to Netball Camps at Hibiscus Sports Complex, Upper Mount Gravatt

In Articles by Naomi Hardy

These holidays, Australian Sports Camps will once again run their Netball camp at Hibiscus Sports Complex.  We’ve assembled this guide to give parents an idea of what to expect from our camps, and what your child can gain from attending.

Our sports camps run four times a year for kids aged 6 – 16 and cater to all skill levels.

We employ netball coaches with a minimum Level 1 coaching qualification and ensure a 1:10 coach to participant ratio so that your child receives the individual attention required to maximise their skill development.

Our coaching panels are also joined by guest sporting talent: elite athletes that work with your kids and pass on the knowledge they’ve gained from playing at the highest level of the game.

What to Bring

  • Comfortable netball wear – Children should wear something they feel comfortable playing and training in. As this camp uses indoor courts, children must wear rubber soled shoes.
  • Drink bottle-Drinks are provided daily and water is available to all kids.
  • Lunch –Please bring a packed lunch in a clearly labelled lunch box, but keep in mind ASC has a strict nut free policy.

ASC also provides fruit snacks throughout each of the days.  Some other things you might want to keep in mind are making sure their lunch, clothes and all their belongings are clearly labelled with their name.  We recommend avoiding bringing items that you wouldn’t want to get dirty, damaged or lost and these items include valuables, electronics and jewellery.

Spending money is not required and lollies and chewing gum should be avoided.

Camp Itinerary- How it Works

Over 3 days we provide your children with 18 hours of sports coaching between the hours of 9am to 3pm.  Each day has its own structure and has been designed to cover all areas of Netball including the important foundation skills required for kids to start mastering and improving their game.  More importantly, it’s been designed to maximise enjoyment and ensure that kids are having fun for the entire 3 – day camp.

Training Drills

A combination of some of the best Netballers, including past and former Australian Diamonds Squad members, and experienced coaches makes this camp perfect for experienced players looking to maximise their skills and become the best Netballer they can be.netball-camps

We also cater to young and inexperienced players with our specialised skill development training, which gives kids players a taste of different positions and allows them to develop skills across all areas of the game.  Because they aren’t pigeon holed in one position, kids strengthen their abilities in all areas, meaning they are less likely to get bored and frustrated, causing them to lose interest in the game.

Also, it also allows the children to learn from each other.  ASC allows kids to try different player positions and learn skills without the pressure of a real competition.  That way, if they choose to join a club in the future they have the experience behind them to know where they are best suited.

We have a wide range of training drills and exercises spread out across three days.

We also use state of the art digital video coaching software and provide you and your child with a unique written report from their coach at the end of the camp.  This helps children work out where their strengths lie, and what areas need extra attention for fast improvement.

Coaches

We only employ coaches with a minimum Level 1 coaching qualification, as well as senior coaching staff with years of experience.  Our overall group coach to participant ratio is 1:10 to ensure your child receives the inGretel Tippettdividual attention they require.  In addition, our camps also feature guest appearances from leading Netball players, to deliver top-level training for all participants, and the chance for kids to meet their sporting idols.

Our sporting talent varies each school holidays, but to give you an idea of the calibre of talent we have in attendance, for the last 4 camps we have been joined by Gretel Tippett.

Gretel Tippett

Gretel is a professional netballer for the Queensland Firebirds, and was part of the 2015 and 2016 Premiership winning teams.  Her talents were recognised at the international level after the Firebirds’ 2015 ANZ Champion win, when she was handed her maiden Australian Diamonds cap.

Tippett has represented Australia for the ‘Fast 5 Flyers’ and was part of the Silver Medal winning Youth World Championships team in 2013.  She comes from a strong sporting family, with two brothers playing in the AFL.  Her advice for our young players is to train how you play.
