This week's session aims to solve a common banana-shaped problem that is prevalent in many teams.
Banana I hear you ask? Well yes, this is the lackadaisical half moon shaped run that many players make when they want to receive the ball from a fellow team-mate, with no change of pace, no urgency and ultimately no result.
How can I banish these banana-shaped runs?
To help you break through the opposition's defence we look at a well known basketball play which can easily be adopted into your netball repertoire. Using a combination of drills, plays and conditioned games you will be able to teach your players the V-Cut. The V-Cut is a two directional run, requiring a burst of acceleration and a quick change of direction, to ensure there's not a banana in sight!
Use this session today to see your players making more dynamic runs to lose their markers and meet the ball - the other team won't know what's hit them!
Develop your players understanding of the importance of fast footwork to deceive their opponent and gain more chances on goal.
Develop your player's ability to execute powerful, accurate passing in a game in order to gain dominance over the opposition.
