Netball: Cutting the Angle

I found this service to be excellent and it was of great help when...
Jo, Netball Coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Get into 3's with one ball 
  • Set up 4 cones approximately 4-5 meters wide and 2-3 meters high 
  • One player will be the feeder and stand approximately 2-3 meters in front of the cones
  • One player will be the attacker and will start centrally behind the cones and the other player will be the defender and will start centrally in front of the cones 
  • The attacker will move between the cones running out wide and forwar to the cones closer to the feeder 
  • The feeder can only feed the ball when the attacker is at either front cone 
  • The defender must try to intercept the ball 
  • The defener must get 4 successful interceptions (2 each side) before they can switch out 

COACHING POINTS

  • The defender should focus on their body position, maintain and open body position - so they can see the ball and the player - this will give them the best chance of success 
  • The defender should also try to cut the line of the ball, this will help them avoid contact and increase their chance of success 
  • To make it easier for the defender the attacker can slow down so they can focus on getting the body positioning correct 
  • To make it harder for the defender, the attacker can speed up their movement and change direction before reaching the cone

    PROGRESSION

    If the defender over commits the attacker can drive back and the feeder can pass the ball in - this will help the defender time their movement and recover quickly from over committing
