It is important for your players to know and be able to implement all three stages of defence. If each player does their own job and utilises these stages, your team will find it easier to turnover the ball.
What's in the Session?
The session begins with a fun warm up to get your players thinking about both their attacking and defensive movement. The session progresses to work on the first stage of defence, shadowing your player so you can get ready to go for the intercept. This drill will get your places focusing on their body angle, maintaining an open body position, to increase your chance of a successful turnover. 'Pressure box' allows your players to further develop stage 1 and introduce stage 2, putting pressure on the ball with a 3ft mark. The final drill introduces the third stage of defence, dictating your player and gives your players an opportunity to combine all 3 stages. The session concludes with a modified game of netball, with certain conditions placed upon the game to get your players demonstrating what they have learnt.
