futureFERNS (FF) for 2024

futureFERNS review 

Netball New Zealand are currently undertaking a 17-week review of the futureFERNS programme after 10 years in operation. The review runs until April 2024 and will involve hearing from the wider community along with regular updates along the way. Any changes will be rolled out in 1, 2 or 3-year increments depending on the outcomes and how much change they potentially involve. There are no pre-determined outcomes, and we are very open to looking at all aspects of game satisfaction for all participants.
