Netball: Banana Peel

I have thoroughly enjoyed using your site to help me with my coaching...
Donna, Coach

DESCRIPTION

*AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON*

Set up:
Half court with a goal post, 1 ball, 4-8 players ( centre feeder, 2x midcourt, 2x shooter, 2-3x defence).

  • Starting from centre circle, a feeder passes the ball to one of two players.
  • The player who calls 'banana', the straight driver, receives the pass.
  • Player who does not receive the pass, 'peels' out and drives to the top of the circle.
  • The pass is released from the 'peeler' at top of the circle, to a shooter in the circle then to another shooter in their preferred position.

COACHING POINTS

  • Midcourt players to drive out together and communicate who is the 'banana' and who is the ‘peel'.
  • Drives are strong and accurate onto the circle edge.
  • Ball to travel in a straight line from centre circle to hoop.
  • Shooters ideally receive a front ball.

Common errors:
'Peeler' doesn’t do a strong 'peel', they need to drive out and then peel to hit the edge of the circle.

 

PROGRESSION

  • Bring in 1 midcourt defence.
  • Bring in 1-2 circle defence.
  • Alternate between 1 -2 shooters and defence.
