Netball: 1-2 Taking on two defenders

Thank you, what a brilliant site. Our team uses many of these effective...

DESCRIPTION

  1. One A starts with the ball. She passes to her partner who has made a move to get past a defender.
  2. First A then moves, taking on the other defender to receive the ball back from her partner, a 1-2 passing pattern.
  3. A then passes to another A at the front of the opposite line to where she started.
  4. Defenders mark tightly.
  5. Working As line up at the back of the opposite line to where they started.
  6. New As repeat.

COACHING POINTS

Defenders mark tightly but do not come together. They should man to man mark where possible, putting the individual attacker under pressure to get free.

Attackers need to take on the defenders with conviction and without hesitation. They must use definite moves, trying to outwit their defender and creating space to drive in to.

PROGRESSION

You can progress this by adding additional defenders. Start with 3 defenders. This will put greater pressure on the attackers, encouraging them to 'take on' their defender and employ a variety of ways to get free.
