What’s in the Session?
Use fun but tricky drills to get your team working hard but enjoying themselves in this session! Start off with a fun warm-up game to get your player’s heartbeat up and ready for some Netball. Continue onto drills which will get your players working on shadowing the opposition, focusing on the ball and ready to anticipate the opposition’s next move. Shadowing is a big part of Stage 1 defending and improving this skill will develop your players’ defensive skills, ready to take on the opposition!
Get your players all on the same page so their movement is decisive, direct and threatening with every attack.
Be clever with your movement to penetrate the space and maximise your attacks.
Don?t underestimate the value of defending. It?s the only way to start an attack!
Set-pieces are your chance to create a sustained attack and maximise possession of the ball.
