Jo, Netball Coach

DESCRIPTION

*AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON*

  • Set up in pairs
  • 1 partner (A) has the ball.
  • Partner A faces away from partner B.
  • A Passes the ball in the air to themself and turns.
  • Partner B jumps back to 3 feet distance and needs to defend in one of 4 ways. 
  1. Lean
  2. Jump
  3. Ladder
  4. Late hand
  • Switch over players. 

COACHING POINTS

  1. Lean- From 3 feet away, balancing and leaning up with hand over the ball.
  2. Jump- Getting ready to anticipate the release of the ball to time the jump so that defenders are able to reach the ball mid-air or distract the shooters rhythm. 
  3. Ladder- Arms at different levels as if reaching out on different rungs on a ladder. Alternate the movement of the arms as if moving up the ladder whilst balancing and maintaining 3 feet distance. 
  4. Late Hand- Much like the jump, this is about timing and anticipating the release of the ball. 
  • It is important that players do not break the obstruction rule. When leaning ensure start at the correct distance and do not dip in. 
  • Timing in the jump and the late hand is important. Learn the shooters rhythm. Are they 1 second or 2 second shooters. Players can then time their jumps to interfere with the shot. 
  • When defending, players need to make their presence known, make themselves as big as possible.
