These team sports happen in term 2 in our town. It works out very well as they happen at the same time and at the same place, which means less running around for mum! So for the next 9 weeks or so we will be spending our Saturday morning in town. Everyone’s skills have improved since last year. Actually the girls didn’t have Netball last year as there wasn’t enough interest (but this year there are 6 teams over 3 age brackets) Last year another Homeschool Mum took the homeschool girls under her wing and while the cricket was still happening she did Netball training. They didn’t play a game but they learnt how their body moves, they learnt individual netball moves and skills and they learnt to think the game. It certainly showed on Nomi and Jessica’s game today. Nomi loved it so much she played as a sub for the older team who was low on numbers so she played two games in succession. Jessica loved it so much that she was half way through a game and thought – hey, I’m sick today, I wasn’t going to play!!!
