Netball Drill Demonstration



Set up: At least 6 players form equal lines in a triangle formation. One defender in the middle. One ball.

  • Progression for MAD
  • Players are to pass the ball to either of the other 2 lines then move to the opposite.
  • Defender must apply pressure and attempt intercepts.
  • The aim is to keep all 3 line balanced so there is always someone to pass to and no one is ever left in a line by themselves. 

Coaching points


Players are to understand the importance of balancing court and to be a reactive player after they have passed.



  • Keep time of how long it takes each defender to force an error. Either intercept or no one in one of the lines. 
  • Once defender has forced an error swap another defender in. 
  • Make it a competition- fastest to force an error wins.
