Netball: Passing Into Space and Drive

I am currently coaching a senior college team and I have found Sportplan...
Kiri, Coach

DESCRIPTION

*AUDIO DESCRIPTTION ON*

Set up:

  • One third, shooting end of court.
  • One ball
  • 5+ players
  • Two players stand on base line with the ball. 
  • Three stationary feeders assembled as a triangle facing the shooting circle (two either side of circle and one at the transverse line). 

 

Description:

  • Players on base line: Player closest to feeder passes the ball to standing feeder at side of circle. 
  • Both players drive out from base line. Player who passed the ball drives around the feeder who was just passed to (diagonal drive). Other player drives towards the stationary feeder near transverse line (straight drive), they need to prepare to receive a pass. 
  • First feeder catches and delivers a pass to the forward driving player before they get to the stationary feeder.
  • The driving player with ball now passes ahead to the stationary feeder at the transverse line. 
  • The first initial driver has driven around first feeder and aims for a cross court straight drive to the final feeder.
  • Stationary feeder at transverse line delivers a pass to the initial driver which will be received mid court. 
  • Initial driving player passes to the last stationary feeder in front of them and continues to drive around them.
  • Other driving player would have driven around the transverse standing feeder and drives straight back towards base line and will receive a pass from the last stationary feeder midcourt before sending the last pass to the other driving player.

 

COACHING POINTS

There needs to be urgency in the drives and changes in body angles need to be appropriate. Ideally players are not turning their back to the ball when driving around a stationary feeder. Driving players need to keep time together.

PROGRESSION

Add in defence to the center of the drill. Use bib player to distinguish. You could start this as a ‘loose’ defence in a given area e.g. the circle space or 3 foot mark on any given feeder and then progress to a more man on approach. Add in a shot at the end of sequence by the driving players. Player without the ball could defend. Get players to alternate if they are passing first or driving. Rotate driving players and feeding players. Common Errors: Dropped balls – if it is early on in the sequence start again. If it is mid way you could come up with a forfeit, for example, tun to end post.
