This sounds so familiar; "This competition is designed as a better introduction to the sport where it's nine-on-nine played on a quarter pitch. Players get more touches on the ball, they learn to pass and tackle against those of a similar size, it's easier to form a team and they don't get too discouraged." Auckland Football have modified their adult game for younger players and their playing numbers are increasing, which is just what NNZ is seeing with the introduction of their new NNZ Junior Netball Programme.
