Netball: Quick Decisions - Jump and Land

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

DESCRIPTION

Split your players into two groups and get them to pair up.

  1. The first pair in the line set off and must first choose a hoop to jump and land into - it must not be the same as other player.

  2. Both then run to the cone in the middle before then changing direction and choosing the next hoop. Where they jump and land again. They cannot go to the same hoop as the other player, nor can they go back to the same hoop as last time.

  3. Repeat this one last time. Coach or feeder can send in ball at final hoop for a one-two pass.

  4. Return to the line by jogging around the outside of the court.

COACHING POINTS

Repeat five times, getting progessively faster or by using different footwork patterns and dynamic movements to move through the course.

With more experienced players and adults you should replace the hoops with agility ladders (harder as less space to land in). Players should also start more quickly one after another so that you may end up having to consider players overtaking you as well as your partner when making your direction/space decision!

Start slow, but build momentum.

  • Heads up at all time,
  • Communicating with your partner through words or signals
  • Quick decision to claim your space, otherwise reading off player ahead to claim your space
  • Fast feet movement
  • Sharp change of direction pushing off outside foot
