Netball Drill Demonstration



Set up: Full court, 6+ players, 10 cones.


Players start in two groups on the baseline. 

Cones are set up in a ‘Christmas Tree’/zig zag like formation down the length of the court. 

One at a time, each player runs straight to the first cone. Side steps to the second cone. Runs a diagonal to the third cone. Sidesteps to the fourth cone and finishes with a diagonal to the last cone.

Players then join the group on the other side and do the same movements going back down the court. 

Players are running continuously and leave the baseline with the player in front has reached the first cone. 

Coaching points

As players warm up, encourge them to increase speed.

You could change movements between cones, for example, high knees, grapevine, heel flicks, lunges.
