Netball Drill Demonstration


Set up a small triangle of cones on the circle edge, to one side. A defender stands in this area.

Have 2 attackers (A1, A2) positioned as shown in the diagram.

A2 passes the ball to A1 and runs into the triangle on the circle edge.

A1 passes back to A2 who is now defended.

Coaching points

The attackers should front cut or back cut the defender:

  • Front cut- drive forward then if the defender's bodyweight shifts they can change and go in behind them.
  • Back cut- drive back to move the defender out of position and then get in front.

Shift the defenders bodyweight to get onto the circle by running at them and then dodging.
