Netball | Defence Drills

HOW TO USE THESE DRILLS...

There are three stages of Defence in netball:

  1. Shadowing - Being on your toes, ready to pounce
  2. 2. Pressure (3 ft) - Make things difficult for the opposition
  3. 3. Deny Space (block) - Win back possession for your team

The defence drills below will improve your players' shadowing of the opposition (man marking) and their ability to zone, all the while keeping three feet away to ensure they don't give away free passes.

Other netball skills covered include defending as individual and defending as a team - fast footwork to get in front - peripheral vision (so you can see the attacker, ball and other defenders) - and developing your defender's ability to read the game and intercept the ball.

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

Debbie Cross Australia

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
