Netball: Criss-Cross Pass - Land on outside foot

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

DESCRIPTION

Split your players into 4s or more with 2 balls. Both blue players start with a ball.

  1. The blue players both throw the ball to the Red players who in turn return the ball.

  2. After returning the ball the red players swap places.

  3. Repeat once more.

Time the cross-over moves so that players receive on the move.

COACHING POINTS

Encourage players to face the ball at all time when driving to receive the ball.

Players need to land on their outside foot when receiving the ball - you can get them to land on the wrong foot so they can experience the difference for themselves.

Try to get players to drive onto the ball and use their body when passing the ball.

You should be looking for your players to establish the 'land 1 2 release' - land step then release the ball.

Encourage players to to turn in air when receiving the ball and discourage pivoting - turning in the air is quicker and a tool to lose your defender effectively if done correctly.
