Netball: Working on a 2 vs 1

Sportplan is fantastic with all the various drills for every area...

DESCRIPTION

The feeders are positioned adjacent to one another, instead of opposite - with an attacker and defender inside the square.

Within the square, there will be 2 defenders and 1 attacker.

The attacker can offload to either feeder.

However, if the attacker cannot get free within 3 seconds OR the attacker is holding the side of the free feeder - the ball can swing to the free feeder.

The ball can only be swung once, at which point it must be passed to the attacker.

The attacker must still try to get free each time for the first feed.

The practice allows the attacker to work on a 2 on 1 situation.

COACHING POINTS

The attacker must think about how they can shift the defenders to get free, without contacting either.

If the attacker is struggling to get free, highlight the idea of isolating one defender and working off the other.

The attack should recognise how setting up early and working at speed, releasing the ball will allow them to get free more easily.

The feeders must also recognise when the attacker is struggling to get free and use the swing to open the attacker up.

PROGRESSION

You can challenge the attacker to complete a set number of passes consecutively without a mistake or a touch from the defender - for example 5 consecutive passes before they can switch out of the square.

To challenge the defence you could set a condition that they may only switch out if they interrupt the practice - either a tip or interception.
