Form two lines side by side (A RED and A BLUE)
Set up 3 feeders in a triangular shape
The player at the front of the BLUE queue will start with the ball
They will pass the ball to the first feeder (1) they will then follow their pass and drive around the back of the feeder to re offer for the next ball
At the same time the player at the front of the RED queue will drive straight and receieve the ball from the first feeeder (2)
RED will then pass to the feeder straight ahead (3) and follow their pass, moving around that feeder
Feeder 2 will pass the ball to BLUE who will have driven around the first feeder to recieve a straight ball (4)
BLUE will then pass off to the third feeder (5) and follow their pass, going around the back of the feeder and re join the opposite queue
RED will have driven around feeder 2 and will receive the ball from the third feeder (6) they will then pass the ball to the next player at the front of the BLUE queue
Ensure your players can see the ball at all times, partciuarly when clearing around the back of the feeders
You should be able to see a change of speed from your players, from when they are clearing around the feeder (slower) to driving hard for the ball (faster)
The feeders should pass a flat hard ball so the attacker is moving onto the ball, not standing waiting
Ensure that players switch queues so they get to try both movement patterns
A min. of 8 players standing in four corners of 1/3 of the court, one player with a ball.
Player 1 passes the ball into the space ahead of player 2 who runs on to receive the ball and passes it into the space ahead of player 3 etc. Players move on to next group after the pass.
Using the width of a third create 3 lines either side of the third (a minimum of 12 players is required for this drill to be effective)
The first row of 3 (RED) will have one ball and work it to the other side (1, 2, 3)
The ball is passed off to the next set of 3 who will do the same (4)
HOWEVER the 3 players who were just attacking (RED) will now defend the next set of 3 who they just passed the ball too
NOTE: The GREEN players who have just defended will go behind the BLUE and get ready for their turn to attack
Minimum group of 6 - 2 balls.
Players 2 have a ball each and pass to players 1, and then cross over to receive, return; cross over to receive, return; cross over to receive, return.
Players 1 then toss the ball in the air for players 2 to catch and then become feeders to the number 3 who are now working. Numbers 1 join the back of the lines.
Starting on a backline, players move the ball through the court ending up with the shooter who puts a shot up. Players should aim to pass the ball in the following order: GK, GD, WD, C, WA, GA, GS. If WD had the ball for example, ideally the C should receive it, but WA also needs to offer in a different space for the ball, as well as the GD providing a back up offer if the C is not available. There should always be a back-up offer from the player who has just received the ball, as well as a minimum of two offers from down the court. Players should aim to time their movement so they are reading off each other.
2 teams play a normal game of netball. The only difference being that every player who receives the ball has to pass the ball within 2 seconds. If they fail to do so that player must put the ball on the floor for the other team to collect before the game can continue.
The Player with the ball passes to player in space on the left. The player receiving the ball jumps into the air, prior to pass and turns in the air to receive ball, finishing up facing backwards to return ball to player in the same queue. This player then passes diagonally to the right.
*AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON* Set up in 2 lines facing each other. 2 working players out of the lines back to back facing the line they have come from and with a ball each. Working players pass back to their lines then run behind the front player in the line (one with the ball). They are then to drive on a digonal to the middle of the 2 lines and receive a pass. Working players are now facing each other with a ball each and pass with left hands to each other receiving the opposite ball. Players then pass a high ball to their right (the line they have come from) and drive to the left (other players line) to intercept the other ball before it reaches the line. Players to join the back of the line and a new working pair to start in the middle.
Two way game of netball with 2 teams and 2 balls! Each GK starts the game at their end with a throw-in from the back line. Each team has to look after their ball and give their GS opportunity to score. If their GS scores the ball goes back to the opposition's GK.
Equipment: 2 balls, half court space, 6+ players. 4 players stand as posts in a square as set out in video. Approximatly half way down 1/3 and near halfway. 2 other players, the workers, start on the baseline with the balls, one each. Workers pass ball out to first posts on a diagonal and follow the pass to recieve a short pass from first post. Workers then pass straight on to the second posts and follow the pass. Second post players toss a high ball for the workers to catch. Workers stay put and the second post players run down court to recieve a long pass to the point of the first posts. First posts move down and will become the workers in the next round.
Feeder, 2 attackers, 3 defenders. Feeder starts play from the Centre Circle. The attacker runs forward off the third line into the middle third to receive the ball, marked by a defender. They then pass a lateral ball to the feeder who has moved out to the side, where there is another defender acting as a 3ft mark. The attacker runs into a space in the end third to receive the ball back. When they have received the ball again they pass to an attacker in the circle, who is also marked. The defender in the circle (GK) can help the other defender if they get shut out. However if both defenders get drawn to the attacker then the feeder can pass straight to the GS in the circle.
Split your group into 8s (2 balls are needed for this pass and move exercise). The balls start on opposite corners and are passed clockwise. Each worker, after having passed the ball, swaps places with the player across the square that passed the ball at the same time.
Split the group into 6s with one ball per group. Red player 1 throws the ball to Blue player 1, and then receives a return pass while moving forward. Red player 1 then throws the ball to Blue player 2, who then passes onto Red player 2. Red player 1 takes place of Blue player 2 and Blue player 2 goes to back of queue. Red player 2 repeats practice in opposite direction. Progression - The posts move to receive the ball each time.
