Junior tournaments are designed for students in school years 7 to 11 (unless otherwise stated), Sixth Form schools and junior clubs allowing Party Leaders to hand over the task of organising your itinerary and recruiting rival teams to us.

High 5 weekends
JCA are always looking to make the game available to everyone and anyone who wants to take to the court, and are now running high 5 tournaments at Condover Hall!
An increasingly popular entry-level version of netball, High 5 netball is designed specifically for young players aged 9-11. Matches see 5 players per team on court at once with players rotating round positions, enabling all young netball stars to experience every position on court, learning it’s role in the team and encouraging as many players as possible to participate.
In some cases, children take on off-court positions such as timekeeping and scoring. By offering them a role during non-playing time, High 5 is seen to engage children and hold their attention for a longer time. The rules allow more freedom around the court and give players more time to make tactical decisions, making it the perfect as an introduction to netball for under 11s.
