Everybody knows that most boys and girls get their first taste of football through Auskick, but did you know that both Basketball and Netball have similar programs for the little ones? Better yet, they run all year round!


NetSetGO is the official Netball Australia junior entry netball program. The program provides children from 5-10 years with a positive introduction to netball, incorporating skill activities, minor games, music, dance and modified matches. Delivered in a fun and safe environment, the weekly program is coordinated by accredited coaches to ensure all participants have an enjoyable experience, while developing fundamental life skills.

The program consists of two tiers – ‘Net’ and ‘Set’. The recommended ages for the ‘Net’ program are children aged 5-7 years, with the ‘Set’ program catering for 8-10-year-olds. Your coaches will advise if they think your child needs to be in a particular program.

Cardinia Life runs the ‘Net’ program on Wednesday afternoons from 4pm and the ‘Set’ program on a Monday afternoon from 4pm
