Side/backline throw in
Place 6 different coloured cones in different places on the side and back lines to signal start position of the throw in.
Coach calls out a colour and one of the attackers runs to pick up the ball from this cone.
Play until each ball next to the cones has been used (6 times).
1 point if the attackers get the ball to half way
(You can give them the option to get to goal if you want, which would be worth 2 points, but having a full court of players could leave the players at the other end being less active).
You can also give the defenders a point for successful intercepting
Start off with 1 defender who can choose to mark either player.
Then add in a second defender to make it more difficult for the attackers.
1 team starts with the ball and tries and make 10 consecutive passes. The other team can send 1 or 2 players across to try and win the ball for their side.
If the other team wins possession back for their team the roles reverse in other area (10 passes scores a point.)
The first team starts with the ball inside the attacking third, with all the other players except one stood outside the area.
The aim for the team in the area with the ball is to complete as many sets of 5 passes as possible. Every time they complete 5 passes another defender from outside the area is allowed in to try and intercept the ball.
Once all of the defending players have entered the playing area, or after an interception has been made, the teams change over and try to beat the first teams score.
Two defenders work inside a circle of players with one ball.
The red players must pass the ball around the group and try to keep possession.
The two defending players must work together to mark the ball, keeping the 3ft distance, while the other defenders 'zones' the space.
So, if Red 1 receives the ball, Green 1 (the nearest defender) calls "ball" and goes to cover the ball and Green 2 moves back, calls "hole" and zones the area.
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.
