ANZ NetSetGO centres get in tune with dance routine

DSC_0018The countless number of presentation days being held around Australia is a sign that the season is wrapping up for netball clubs and associations.

Like thousands of their counterparts, the Seymour Junior Netball Association in regional Victoria recently wrapped up their 2014 season.

As part of the presentation day, the association’s ANZ NetSetGO participants gave a demonstration of the new ANZ NetSetGO dance routine before being given their participant medals.

The ANZ NetSetGO dance was released this year and is now available to be viewed on the ANZ NetSetGO website, featuring Australian Diamonds star Kim Ravaillion.

The Seymour Junior Netball Association have regularly used the dance routine throughout their season and president Ann Eden said around 100 players, coaches, parents and grandparents participated on the presentation day.

“We have used the dance routine a couple of times as a cool down after the players have finished their game,” Eden said.

“The dance activities are a great way to develop a range of fundamental motor skills that are used in netball.

“This includes twisting, turning, bending, leaping, dodging, skipping and sliding. It is so good to see everyone out there joining in and having fun.”

During the year, the Seymour Football Netball Club’s ANZ NetSetGO participants joined with the Seymour Junior Netball Association for a “fun family night of Netball” on a Friday night with two 13/Under players out the front showing everyone how to perform the dance.

“It was so much fun that even parents and grandparents joined in,” Eden said.

“Netball offers many opportunities for children to keep fit, catch up with friends and learn some lifelong skills.”

The ANZ NetSetGO dance is also available on DVD and are available through state associations. Visit the website for more information.
