Movement Skills - Making Space to receive the Pass
Rating: 4
from 26 members ratings

Losing your opposition in netball is essential. Once a player on your team has the ball in hand they're restricted to pivoting or taking one step before passing the ball on again - therefore it's imperative that before your players receive the ball they've created enough space in which they can work - be that opening up space for others, finding another player to pass to or shooting on goal!

For example, from a back line throw-in by the GK the GD and WD may roll outward towards the sidelines, taking their opponents with them, leaving lots of space for the centre to drive into.

What's in the Session?

To get your players making intelligent runs like this we start this session with a fun warm up of Raiders, the cone collecting game, before then getting down to business - working on the give and go, making driving runs that show a clear change of direction to lose any potential man-markers.
