Netball Drill Demonstration


One player always passes the ball straight and the other always passes the ball diagonally.

Both players are catching and throwing the ball with one hand and at shoulder height.

Coaching points

Ensure your players spread their fingers behind the ball for control.

Players must be showing their hands to indicate they're ready to receive the ball.


With larger groups your can progress this practice by having players working in triangles - on the coach's call of 'change' players must change the direction of the pass.
