Netball: Reaction to a Loose Ball

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

DESCRIPTION

  • Get into pairs with one ball
  • One player will be the feeder (F) and the other will be the worker (A)
  • The worker will start close to the feeder and drive back on an angle 
  • The feeder (at any time) can drop the ball
  • The worker must react to this and quickly cut back to collect  the ball
  • Repeat on the other side
  • Complete 8 reps (4 each side) 

COACHING POINTS

  • Ensure you commit to both drives - both driving back and  forward 
  • Ensure you do not have a flat angle when driving back 
  • Make sure you can always see the ball - particularly when driving back, ensure you maintain and open body position 
  • The worker must react to the ball - they cannot cut back until the ball has been dropped - this will simulate a loose ball and will help your players react quickly to secure possession
