Netball: Fartlek Challenge

I am currently coaching a senior college team and I have found Sportplan...
Kiri, Coach

DESCRIPTION

Players start inside the safe house (the white area).

On the coach's call players must sprint around the entire perimeter of the court, they can only stop running once they are back inside the safe house.

Players are given 10 seconds resting time (increase resting time with younger players) before having to repeat the run.

COACHING POINTS

One way for you to liven up this drill is to have the coach stand in the middle with the ball. At the end of each run the coach calls out a players' name. This player must then run into the D to receive a pass from the coach. After catching the ball the player must try and score.

If players score a set amount of shots (eg 3 in a row) then the training is over.

How much your players have to run depends on their shooting ability!

Notes:

Fartlek training is a fantastic way for you to test your players'anaerobic endurance.
