Holiday Programmes

Holidays are a time for children to kick-back, relax and have fun and our holiday programmes tick all the boxes.

Children are spoilt for choice at Auckland Netball Centre with fun and varied programmes to suit boys and girls of all ages. We offer free early drop-off and late pick-up to cater for busy and/or working parents so your child is cared for and entertained all day and there are no hidden costs. Auckland Netball is proud to be an OSCAR approved holiday programme service provider which means you can be confident that your children are in safe hands in a safe environment (as audited by the Ministry of Social Development). For more information please see write up at the bottom of this page.

Our St Johns venue is a large and versatile space and we have the flexibility to use both our indoor and outdoor areas depending on the weather. We have amazing facilities and equipment meaning that children are exposed to a variety of activities keeping their days interesting. As part of the Multi-Activity Mania programme at St Johns, each week there is a trip to an external venue which is well organised and changes things up a bit.

We pride ourselves on not only the quality of our programmes but our excellent trained staff. Serena Somlyai, Programme Development Officer, has a passion for children’s programmes and ensuring that every single child has a blast when they attend her programmes. There’s always variety, friendly faces and fun things to do which make our holiday programmes the best of the best.

“My kids look forward to holidays to join Auckland Netball holiday programme. The programme varies, is interesting and educational. They enjoy meeting other children and most importantly the staff are very friendly and kids enjoy them. From a parent’s point of view, it’s flexible with drop off and pick up and most importantly, a safe environment.”

“My 8 year old son loves sport but has never really enjoyed holiday programmes. He participated in the programme last holidays and begged to return this time around. He has again thoroughly enjoyed himself and came home excited (and exhausted!) about the new friends, skills and sports he has discovered. Thank you very much for a great programme, we’ll definitely be back next holidays.”
