Change of Direction - Darting Runs!
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!
