Netball Drill Demonstration


  • 1 player is a cat
  • 1 player is a mouse
  • The other players lie (or stand) in lines (can have 2-4 groups depending on numbers) 

The Cat tries to tag the Mouse.

If the Cat manages to tag the Mouse then they swap roles (she becomes the Mouse and the Mouse becomes the Cat).

The Mouse runs away and joins the end of a group "in the mouse hole" to be safe. When the Mouse joins the end of a line then the person at the other end of the line becomes the new Mouse to be chased by the Cat.

Coaching points

This encourages quick movement and changes of direction from the Mouse.

The Cat works like a Defender tracking a player. They need to be aware of options for the Mouse to join a group, and try and shut these down where possible.
