Netball: Modified game for interception and cover defence

I am currently coaching a senior college team and I have found Sportplan...
Kiri, Coach

DESCRIPTION

Goal Keeper floats to the top of the circle and drives to either side of the area to intercept balls that are fed up to the opposition's Goal Attack/ Wing Attack.

By moving to try and intercept the ball your player will inevitably leave a hole. To ensure this hole isn't exploited by the other team it is important that the Goal Defence drops back to cover the direct throw to the red team's Goal Shooter.

COACHING POINTS

The aim of this drill is to make sure your players move as a unit, shifting from side to side to cover space made by a player who moves out of position.

Look for good movement, communication and awareness - making sure if a gap appears your players are ready to fill in.
