Netball: WD/GD Interceptions

I found this service to be excellent and it was of great help when...
Jo, Netball Coach

DESCRIPTION

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.

COACHING POINTS

If the Defender over-commits to a run then the GK can call to cover the Attacker.

D1 is aiming to dictate the Attacker either narrow or wide.

If

  • Narrow: she attempts to keep the Attacker high (off the circle edge) and force in behind 3ft. If the Attacker does get deep near the circle edge the GK can fly out to intercept the long lifted pass.

Or

  • Wide: goes for her own intercept.

Make sure they contest every pass and recover. If they miss an intercept they should get their feet back to 3ft distance and arms up immediately

They need to keep on their toes for agility
