Like hockey, the girls tend to play this sport. Evolving from basketball, netball has come to be seen as its female equivalent but is no less competitive. Within the Air Cadets it's played in the early part of the year and is terrific exercise and a great way to make new friends - netball is a real passion for its players.

Shoot to the top

Competitions between squadrons are normally open to all age groups, but if you progress to wing level and beyond, it is split into junior and senior girls. If you're really good you could progress all the way through to Corps level. Imagine standing on the court with your team, representing Air Cadets against other cadet organisations - it's opportunities to shine like this that we can offer you.

Netball in the Air Cadets is played under the rules of the All England Netball Association.
