Netball Drill Demonstration


Linked to Defensive Circle Switch 3

As the GA comes down the court, the GD does not succeed in driving her to the baseline and she cuts front to the top of the circle.

How quickly can the GK pick her up? How GD needs to be aware of the lifted ball to the GS!  

Coaching points

  • feet under body, head and eyes up
  • angled on your player, be strong and focussed on your first job, which is to drive her onto baseline. If you come off her too early, she can front cut to top
  • if GK taking on the front cut, can she get the intercept from a dropped ball (as in drill 1?); if that ball is then lifted to GS, can the GD switch and move quick enough to get that intercept?
