Former Fijian Pearls captain/coach Una Rokoura visited 27 schools in two weeks to conduct NetGO Programme.

Rokoura is the Pacific Sports in Partnership Coordinator (Fiji) for the programme which was set up by Netball New Zealand in Fiji to promote a healthy lifestyle and increase participation levels.

The Net GO programme is a partnership initiative between Netball Fiji, Netball New Zealand and the Ministry of Education.

“We have had a busy and exciting two weeks conducting the Net GO programme in schools around Viti Levu,” Rokoura said.

“We managed to complete our foundation course as promised to the teachers and students that Net GO will deliver the netball kits to their doorsteps.

“We had 47 schools around Viti Levu registered under this programme and we managed to deliver the kits to 27 schools in the past two weeks.

“We traveled all the way to schools in Vatukoula and it was really a good experience.

“The Net GO programme is just four months old and we are pleased to reach out to so many schools in Viti Levu.

“The kit contains six balls, 12 cones, a whistle, ball pump, two sets of beeps and a ball bag.

“We are just vying to meet up to the objective of the partnership programme. Our focus for the next two years is to make sure we accredit as many teachers as possible.

“We will try to carry out the programme among district club coaches during a workshop in Lautoka February 23-24.”
