Year 5/6 Bee Netball Leagues
2 October, 2023 from 1:00 pm - 20 March, 2024 from 5:30 pm
FOR ALL, TARGETED, COMPETITIVE
All of our events will follow our new event themes; For All, Targeted & Competitive. These themes have been designed to ensure we provide events to benefit all young people.
FOR ALL– These events are for everyone and are delivered in school. They focus on providing 60 active mins for every child whilst supporting their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.
TARGETED– These events target specific groups of young people who would benefit the most from having positive experiences of sport, physical activity and competition. The activities and outcomes are designed to reflect the young people’s needs and motivations.
COMPETITIVE– These events are for pupils who are ready and prepared for competition and enjoy performing and competing against others. They provide the opportunity for competition in a positive and friendly environment where the focus is on enjoyment and supporting the wider development of young people as much as the outcome of the event itself.
This is a COMPETITIVE event for children in Year 5/6 who are ready for competition. The aim of this event is to support individual development in sport.
The Bee Netball Leagues are played at local venues over two rounds in a round robin format. All teams qualify from their local league for a central venue SSP finals night. All teams entered are expected to attend both rounds.

The Bee Netball game is 5-a-side, but all squads/teams should have a minimum of 7 players and maximum of 9 which may consist of boys and girls, although only 2 boys may be on the court at any time. Players rotate round the positions as per the rules, every half time and at the end of each match.
Each team should come with an adult prepared to umpire their team’s matches and one to supervise the players. Where possible we will endeavour to provide sports leaders to help umpire matches.
Each team playing in this league qualifies to a finals tournament where you will play teams from the other local divisions. Which finals tournament you are invited to is determined by your finishing position in your division and you will be notified of this after all divisional games have taken place across the Partnership.
