Netball: Intercept With Defence

I have thoroughly enjoyed using your site to help me with my coaching...
Donna, Coach

DESCRIPTION

*AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON*

  • Set up GS and GK in the shooting circle. 
  • Two midcourt players start with the ball in the centre third towards the transverse line. One player in the centre of the court (C), one on the side (WA). 
  • Put a bib on a player to be the floating defender. 
  • Ball starts with the player in the center and is passed square to the other midcourt player who passes straight back.
  • Floating defender to put pressure on these passes- hands over the ball.
  • The WA player on the side then drives as if heading to the pocket, in the same channel. C player passes a long ball to the pocket for the WA. 
  • GK comes out of the circle hunting for that long ball to the WA ensuring the timing is right.
  • If GK is successful, they then pass back to the C and drive up the court. 
  • Floating defender to defend the GK player coming up the court and trying to get the next ball. GK player will need to dodge or front cut in order to get free for the pass from the C player. 

COACHING POINTS

  • Rotate players around positions to get a feel for reading the long ball. Does not have to be just the GK and GD giving it a go at intercepting as there are Fly Intercept opportunities all over the court. 
  • Ensure the intercepting player times the drive.
  • Ensure the pass from C to the pocket is strong, high and going to actually reach the WA rather than anticipating the GK intercept. 
  • Driving players are to make sure they do not perform footwork once they have intercepted. If they are struggling, take it back a level- get them to land with 2 feet after their intercept, pause and then pass. Slowly develop the passing on the run.
