#Trinbago2023: FAST5 Netballers ready to debut


By Marcus Beeck


A crop of talented young netballers are ready to make their court debut when Trinbago 2023 begins – here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Games starting.

Australia in Action

This is FAST5 Netball’s debut at the Commonwealth Youth Games with Australia, England, South Africa, Botswana, Canada, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Scotland and hosts Trinidad and Tobago set to compete in netball’s shorter and faster format.

FAST5 Netball is different to the traditional format of netball in that matches are played within shorter six-minutes quarters, there are five players on the court (instead of seven), there are power plays and different scoring zones for one-point, two-point and three-point shots.

The goal shooter (GS) and goal attack (GA) may shoot goals from anywhere in the goal third. These goals count for two points if shot from between the inner and outer goal circles and three points if shot from outside the outer goal circle.

Australia will take on Scotland, Canada and Trinidad and Tobago during the group stages before finals take place on the 10 of August.

How to stay across the action.

The best way to stay across all the action is to follow Commonwealth Games Australia on our social media channels, as well as the official Trinbago2023 Commonwealth Youth Games.

Events will be livestreamed, with more information to come on how to access streams, timings, channels and more. Make sure you follow the CGA social media channels for the most up to date information.
