The CHIJ Netball School Team has distinguished itself to be a force to be reckoned with, having won the 'B' and 'C' Division titles many times over the years. This is a strong tradition that we are proud to uphold and defend. Annually, we compete in the South Zone Netball Championships and subsequently move on to compete in the National Inter-School Netball Championships.
Competition season lasts from January to April and our intensive and rigorous training begins in the month of November the preceding year.
Under the leadership and expertise of our coach Ms Kok Mun Wai, the CHIJ Netball School Team has flourished as her dedication and passion for the sport has contributed immensely to the netball legacy in CHIJ. It was her guidance, with the support of the school, which led us to claim the double championship title for both 'B' and 'C' Division in both the South Zone Inter-school Netball Championships as well as National Inter-school Netball Championships consecutively in both 2015 and 2016. In 2017, we achieved championships for South Zone Inter-school Netball Championships while achieving 1st and 2nd placing for C division and B division for Nationals respectively.
However, the CHIJ Netball School Team is not only about winning competitions. Besides the annual championships, CHIJ Netball also plays friendly matches with many different schools and teams (both local and overseas). This helps us to learn from the other players and allows us to gain more experience on and off the court. In 2016, as part of our rigorous training programme in developing our players holistically, our netballers went on a Cultural Immersion programme in Hong Kong.
Netball in CHIJ is not just an ordinary team sport, but one where its members are closely knit and taught the importance of sportsmanship. With our perseverance and determination, we hope to continue to bring glory to the school!
