Netball Rebounding Drills

Rebounding in netball is when a player attempts a goal by shooting but the ball hits the goalpost and bounces back into play.

The rebounding drills below are especially important for your GS, GA, GK and GD as they are the only players allowed in the shooting circle - and how they react to a rebounded shot might mean the difference between scoring or conceding a goal..

These circle rebounding drills will help both attacking and defending players compete for the ball, and improve their ability to regain possession by catching the ball.

Note: The laws of netball state a player must not use the goalpost to regain balance; as a support in recovering the ball going out of court; or for any other purpose which does not include the ball rebounding from the goalpost after a shot.
