World sporting events provide us with an opportunity to celebrate the participation and achievements of the best athletes and teams on the planet. One such sporting event is the Netball World Cup Sydney 2015.
Being played in Australia, between the 7-16 August, it is a tournament that has the 16 best netball nations in the world battle each other to claim the crown as world champions. It will be an exciting tournament that will captivate a nation, and you and your students can be part of it, through the Mini Netball World Cup 2015.
Whilst the spectacular netball on display will forge unprecedented interest in the game, this Year 5 and 6 program will provide you with a unique opportunity to drive learning in your school and community, and enhance general capabilities in your students.
