Netball: Dodging

I am currently coaching a senior college team and I have found Sportplan...
Kiri, Coach

DESCRIPTION

Split players into 4s inside a coned area. The attackers (white) start with the ball on the outside of the playing area.

To begin with White 2 feints a movement one way and then sprints in opposite the direction (to begin with use a passive defender).

After white 1 has passed the ball, she then has to do a feint dodge and run in opposite direction to receive the ball.

Try to get 3 / 5 passes in a row before possession changes.

COACHING POINTS

Players need to communicate with one another to beat the defenders.

Encourage players to use the whole space.

Try to get players to 'give and go' - once they pass the ball move to receive the pass (reactions).

The Dodge:

  • Feet shoulder width apart (weight evenly distributed)
  • Players on their toes - ready to move
  • Player takes two steps one way, drops the shoulder, push off the outside foot to change direction and drive onto the ball the opposite way
