NNZ welcomes Mother Earth as partner for Junior Netball

Netball New Zealand is delighted to announce that Mother Earth has joined as the naming partner of the Mother Earth futureFERNS programme.

The Mother Earth futureFERNS programme is Netball New Zealand’s Junior Netball Programme for Year 1-8 players. The programme progresses through modified formats of Netball, meeting the needs of its players to ensure lifelong participation. The aim of the Mother Earth futureFERNSprogramme is to develop players’ Netball skills and physical literacy through the provisions of quality experiences, support and opportunities.

The Mother Earth futureFERNS programme caters for over 67,000 young Netballers throughout New Zealand, introducing them to Netball via a range of fun activities and games, becoming more challenging as the players get older and continue to develop their skills.

Netball New Zealand Chief Executive, Jennie Wyllie said she was thrilled that Mother Earth had increased their support to become the principle sponsor of the Mother Earth futureFERNS.

“Having a sponsor on board like Mother Earth who believes in the philosophy of the programme is an important piece of the puzzle for providing a quality experience for our younger generation of Netball players.”

New Zealand Marketing Manager, Caroline Potter, said she is looking forward to working with Netball New Zealand and believes the Mother Earth values align nicely with the Mother Earth futureFERNS programme.

“Mother Earth couldn’t be happier to support the Netball community and the Mother Earth futureFERNS programme. We strongly believe in the importance of a balanced and active lifestyle and think our brands work together to encourage this behaviour.”

Mother Earth are a New Zealand owned and operated brand producing delicious and nutritious snacks, muesli bars, spreads and nuts and is part of Prolife Foods based in Hamilton.
