Netball Drill Demonstration


  • The WD and GD will set up on the inside of their player - this will automatically force the attackers outwards towards the sidelines
  • The C will pick one attacker to mark NOTE: this is usually the WA as if the GA receives the ball they are a lesser threat as they aren't in the circle. The GD will then be able to try keep the GA high up court away from the circle
  • The other defender who did not get double marked will simple get ball side and force their attacker wide

Coaching points

  • The centre channel is where attackers want to receive the ball as this gives them more options - this set-up therefore prevents this and limits the attckers space
  • Players must be ball side and dictate their attackers
