Netball Drill Demonstration


Players in 2 equal teams, play across a third. Their aim is to bounce the ball into one of their hoops. Gain a point for each time ball goes in the hoop.

Once hoop is scored or if ball is intercepted, the defending team then becomes attacking team and tries to score a hoop on the opposite side.


  1. Players can move when boucing the ball
  2. Players able to run with the ball
  3. Netball rules
  4. Hoops have different scoring values
  5. Once ball over halfway point, have to include a passback (reset) before being able to score
  6. Change the hoops for skittles
  7. Attach balloons to poles - players have to hit these
  8. Have targets on the wall for players to hit
  9. Have a bigger space and larger teams
  10. Play for a set time
  11. All players to touch the ball before a goal attempt
