NET-TURE targets Primary 5 pupils who have an interest to learn the game. The programmes also serve to add value to the existing skills of players and further develop their potential.


The Carnival aims to provide an additional platform (on top of the National Inter-Primary Schools Championships) for Primary Schools to have a chance to spar with other teams. The carnival invites schools to send Primary 6 students for the Carnival. 

Local and Overseas Competitions


The Netball Academy grabs opportunity to expose the girls to local league widely played by girls and women from all walks of life. This opportunity proves to be a very useful experience yearly. It is also the competition to set the expectations for future competitions.


Singapore Sports School works with Netball Singapore in the National Programme by providing age group coaches to the National Programme.


Sports School netballers are invited to the Bukit Jalil International Netball Competition which sees participation of Malaysian state teams. A guest team from South Africa is also invited to raise the level of competition.

Special Programmes


The International Youth Netball Challenge (IYNC) organised by the Sports School places strong emphasis on the Olympic values of Friendship, Excellence and Respect. The IYNC sees participation of teams from netball powerhouse countries, such as Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, as well as regional countries like Hong Kong. The level of competition brought by the international teams provides Sports School netballers with the opportunity to pit themselves against the best in their age-group and in the process, improve their quality of play. The academy also picks up officiating skills from the tournament.


The Netball Academy organises overseas competitions to give greater exposure to the various teams. The teams travel to countries in the region, as well as Australia and New Zealand.

Sports School’s netball teams compete in official competitions or friendly matches to expose themselves to different types of play. The teams also have opportunities to travel to Australia and New Zealand for training and competition stints.


The Sports School occasionally hosts overseas visiting teams. Our netballers have opportunities about five times a year to spar with teams from England, Australia and New Zealand, among others. These sparring matches provide a good platform for our student-athletes to learn from faster and stronger players to improve their game.

Australian club West Coast Fever is one such team that has visited the Sports School. The club is one of the top local teams, with several of its members in the National Australian team. Being able to spar with an elite team like West Coast Fever allows our netballers to improve on their tactical skills and court play.
