Netball Drill Demonstration


  • The WD and GD will set up close to the line
  • As soon as the whistle goes they will jump over the line and set up a defensive zone with the C
  • This means the defensive players will mark the space, forcing the attackers out of the centre channel, rather than individually man-to-man
  • Your WA and GA can also come into the centre third to flood the area to increase pressure

Coaching points

  • The WD, GD and C must communicate to know where the attckers are and close down the space
  • Your defenders should try to force the attackers wide towards the edge/sidelines
