Netball Drill Demonstration


The red player (1) drops or throws the ball 5 times around the court for the blue player (1) to retrieve and feed back to them as quickly as possible.

When the ball has been retrieved 5 times the red player throws the ball to across to the other red player (2) in the centre third. Blue player 2 meanwhile has to try and intercept this pass from red player 1.

Before the pass is made from one third to the other blue 2 has to give the red player (2) two meters space - only once the pass has been made can they move to try and intercept it.

Once the red player 2 has the ball the drill starts again.

Coaching points

When working to retrieve the ball the blue players have to keep their eyes on the ball and stand on the balls of their feet, ready to collect the ball.

Movement should be sharp.
