Netball Drill Demonstration


  • Place 2 cones on the ground, diagonal from each other - approximately 1 meter apart 
  • Place a 3rd cone with a ball on in front of these cones - approximately 2-3 meters away
  • Your players will use a small foot base to move around the cones, ensuring they do not contact the cones 
  • When someone says 'Go' or after a certain time the worker will drive hard towards the cone with the ball, pick up the ball and hit a certain target - this may be a brick on the wall for example

Coaching points

  • Ensure your players keep their head up, use their arms and use fast feet to get between cones 
  • You can get your players to mix up their movement - they can use a side step movement (as shown) or a running movement for example
  • Make sure your players are always facing the ball by ensuring their body angle is correct
  • Your players should release the ball quickly once they have picked it up - this will put pressure on their pass

Drill tags: ball, circle, figure of eight, reactions, speed
