Jo, Netball Coach

DESCRIPTION

*** AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON ***

  • Point your feet towards the post shoulder width apart and relax your body
  • Ensure the ball is placed comfortably in your hand and bring the ball above your head
  • Your other hand is used to support the ball and maintain its position 
  • Your elbow should have a slight bend and the position of the ball should be above where your ponytail would be 
  • Bend from your knees and ankles to get power behind the ball
  • As you release the ball ensure you flick your wrist and your fingertips to followthrough 

COACHING POINTS

  • Do not place the ball fully in the palm of your hand, use your fingers to ensure your have good control of the ball 
  • When the ball is released it should only come off one hand - the supporting hand is only there for security 
  • NOTE: As the distance increases away from the post the technique does not change, more power simply comes from your knees and ankle. Therefore essentially the further you are away from the post the more you will need to push with your knees, ankles and flick through with your wrist.
