    Swindon High 5 Netball League (School Games)

    The Swindon High 5 Netball League is here! Enter your team by October Half-term (preferably earlier) – once entered you will be placed into one of the pools and play matches against the other teams in your pool. The exact number of games will depend on how many schools enter.

    Pool matches will be played up until February half-term.  Following the pool matches we will organise play-offs to determine which schools progress to the Wiltshire County Finals (provisionally mid-March)

    This is open to pupils in yrs 5 and 6. You must have a squad of 9 players, with a min of 2 and max of 3 boys. The competition will follow the High 5 format where pupils rotate around the positions – please acquaint your team with the format. A copy of the rotation sheet can be downloaded here: RotationSht_Sq9

    There is some flexibility for league matches re match length etc – you can agree that with your opponent. For example, you may decide to play 4 quarters of 10 minutes with a rotation at the end of each quarter.

    Further information will be distributed upon entry.
