Netball: Dictating a Centre Pass

I have thoroughly enjoyed using your site to help me with my coaching...
Donna, Coach

DESCRIPTION

Set up 3 cones along a transverse line, one in the middle, one at the edge of court and one in between these.

Have one defender behind the line and one in front. The attackers aim is to come over the line to receive a Centre pass, inbetween the inside cones.

If the attacker receives the ball:

In between the middle cones: 1pt to the attacker

In between the outside cones: 1pt to the defenders

Keep score out of 6 attempts.

The defenders need to be aware of each other and work to restrict the movements of the attacker.

COACHING POINTS

We are trying to force the attacker out to get the ball wide; this will limit their passing options for the 2nd phase of the Centre pass.

Try your defenders in different positions and facing different directions to see what works best for them as a unit. Reflect on which position they are more successful in and ask them why they think this is?

PROGRESSION

You can progress this by having the feeder run in after the 1st pass to receive a pass back from the attacker. Here the defenders are working on keeping the attacking players off the circle edge and picking up the feeder's movements quickly.
