Netball Drill Demonstration


It is common that the defending C will drop back and double mark either the WA or GA, if that happens... 

  • The WA has been double marked and therefore will pull wide taking both the WD and C with her - this has now left room for the GA 
  • Both the WA and GA will drive out and offer for the ball, however the GA will receive the ball from the C
  • As the defending C has been pulled wide, it will allow the atttacking C the central channel to drive hard and get the ball from the GA at the top of the circle 
  • The GS will be holding their front space and receive the ball from the C ready to put up a shot 

Coaching points

  • The WA cannot be standing static, they must keep both players interested and moving to allow the GA to get the first phase ball
  • There should always be at least two offers for the ball!
  • The C should 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
  • As the GS is holding the defending on her back, the C should pass a strong, fast, flat ball at the GS
