Netball Drill Demonstration


  • The WA and GA will start in a staggered position, with one player (WA in this example) on the line and the other (GA) positioned off the line
  • Both the WA and GA will offer for the centre pass
  • WA will receives the ball from the C
  • GA recognises that they did not receive first ball and will clear out to get down court into the circle
  • Once the C has passed the ball to the WA they will then drive deep down court to receive the second phase ball from back from the WA
  • The GS will hold their space until the C has received the ball and is ready to pass in - they will then drive onto the ball, driving towards the edge of the circle to leave space for the GA
  • The GA should be able to receive the ball from the GS under the post 

Coaching points

  • It is important that both players do not start on the line, nor both too far off the line - they should be crossing the line at different times and therefore their offers will be at staggered timings
  • There should always be at least two offers for the ball!
  • The C must drive at speed down court and ensure they cut in front of the defending C to make sure the pass gets there safely
  • The C (second phase ball) should also try to receive the ball on the circle edge - therefore not allowing a 3ft marker to set up and making the pass into the circle easier
