Alberta Netball Association
Netball Alberta is a not-for-profit sporting association with the Executive and Leagues based in Calgary, but facilitating netball activities and school clinics throughout the province.
Netball is a fast paced ball sport played by two teams of seven players. Games are played on a rectangular court with raised goal rings at each end.
The object is to score goals from within a defined area, by throwing a ball into a ring attached to a 3.05 metres (10 feet) high post.
Players are assigned specific positions, which define their roles within the team and restrict their movement to certain areas of the court. During general play, a player with the ball can hold onto it for only three seconds before shooting for a goal or passing to another player.
