Netball: Centre Pass Defence

Thank you, what a brilliant site. Our team uses many of these effective...

DESCRIPTION

Have the feeder start on the centre circle. Set up two boxes starting in the middle of the court and ending at one edge, with the bottom edge of the boxes being the transverse line.

The feeder's aim is to pass to the attacker, in either box. They will be marked by one defender in the box and another defender behind the box, who will only move in if the first defender over-commits to an intercept and becomes unable to recover their position.

The defenders are aiming to make sure the attacker doesn't receive the ball in the inside box. Ideally they would intercept the ball.

In his scenario of a Centre pass it would be the Centre defending from in front with the WD ready to come into the box from behind.

COACHING POINTS

  • Standing at an angle to see the attacker's movements
  • 2 handed catching
  • Timing of intercepts
  • Taking short strides to allow them to change direction more easily
  • One defender is working to cover wide passes whilst the other is available for a cut back to the middle.

PROGRESSION

Have the defender outside the box stand inbetween the feeder and the attacker.
