Netball Drill Demonstration


Feeder on the centre circle, 2 attackers on the third line (~5m apart) with the defender stood behind in between them.

The feeder can pass to either attacker and the defender will go for the intercept. Whoever gets the ball then passes to the feeder and the attacker that the ball was thrown to runs back towards the edge of the circle with the defender.

The Feeder then passes to the Attacker again and the Defender tries to intercept.

Coaching points


  • Must be on toes
  • Snatch the ball in to protect possession
  • 2 handed intercepts
  • Take short fast steps to accelerate
  • Run backwards before jumping up for the intercept, to avoid the ball being looped over their head
  • Don't go for the intercept too early or the Feeder can hold the ball
