Netball Drill Demonstration



  • Form an upright 'T' position against your defender to hold your back space
  • You can put your arm up to signal where you want the ball to go 
  • Do not move/release the hold until the ball is coming over your head

Coaching points

  • Make sure you maintain a strong upright position, do not let the defender lean back onto you, however ensure you do not contact them either 
  • If you move too soon the defender will be able to reposition and you will lose the space you have created
