NetballSmart is a recognised programme, based on research that promotes injury prevention and performance enhancement, concepts which are well supported by the community. Ongoing exposure to the NetballSmart content and messaging is key to the long-term success of providing welfare for our players.
To maximise the programme’s success, NNZ in partnership with ACC has developed a better resourced and equipped strategy, that will significantly impact on netballer’s injuries. This will predominately be achieved through a further spread of knowledge and understanding of injury prevention and guidance when coaching players to become competent and confident movers in netball throughout the greater community.
- Netball has the highest participation at Secondary School level across all sports in New Zealand
- In 2016, 48% of all Netball injuries occurred at the Intermediate and Secondary School age group
- Knee injuries are the most serious
- Ankle injuries are the most common and recurrent
- Decrease serious injuries in Netball players
- Improve Player Welfare
- Increase awareness/engagement of the NetballSmart philosophy
- Develop Physically Capable Competent Movers
