Netball: WA and GA coordinating Centre Pass

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

DESCRIPTION

Set up a big square 9m x 9m, split into four 3m x 3m squares. It can be put into the context of court by positioning it just inside the shooting third.

Position 2 attackers and 2 defenders as shown in diagram.

A feeder starts outside of the squares with the ball. There is another defender in between the feeder and the square.

This drill looks to progress a Centre pass from the 1st phase (receipt of the 1st pass) to the 2nd phase (passing options from the 1st phase).

One of the attackers has to receive 1st pass over the front line, as they would in a game situation.

The attackers then look to 2nd phase option: the second pass that looks to move the ball into the attacking third.

COACHING POINTS

  • Avoid having both attackers over the line at the same time as this will limit the options for the 2nd phase.
  • Get the attackers to watch each other: if one has committed to getting free then the other should look to being available for the 2nd phase.

PROGRESSION

Vary the start positions of both attackers and defenders:

  • Both up to the line
  • Both off
  • 1 on, 1 off
  • Both on the same side
