The Summer Camps at the North Thompson Volunteer Centre (NTVIC) have kicked into high gear. This week’s Theatre Camp has been a great success and youngsters are looking forward to what week two will offer at the Ridge.
Week two will bring on the first of NTVIC’s two sessions of Netball camps for this summer, and will be running from July 13-17. Focus will mainly be on the rules of the game, skills, and strategy. Drills will be run to work on skill and there will also be scrimmaging.
Each day will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., a packed lunch and water bottle is required however, there will be a snack offered each day.
Netball is a sport derived of basketball; it is played by two teams of seven players on a rectangular court. There are raised goal rings at each side of the court, with each team trying to shoot it into the goal.
Players each have their own position and each position is assigned a different area of the court. Players wear bibs with their positions written on them so that the umpire knows which area of the court they are allowed in. The ball cannot be held for more than three seconds at a time before it must be passed or shot, and dribbling is not permitted. Netball is most popular in commonwealth countries, mainly in schools and is predominantly played by women.
If you have any questions or would like to register your kids in the camp please call 250-672-0033.
