It is important your player can utilise a range of techniques to get free from their opponent to create and penetrate space in order to maintain possession.
What?s in the Session?
The session begins with a fun warm-up to get your players thinking about effective ways to maintain possession to score points. The session develops to provide a series of drills focused on your attackers taking on a defender to get free and provide an option for the ball carrier. These drills will help your players practice a range of movement that they can use to, not only get free from their defender but also to create space for others. ?Receive and return pass? is a great drill to get your players practising working as a partnership to create and penetrate space to effectively get down court. 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.
Your players must work as a unit, working together to create space for one another. Players need to understand that they do not need to receive the ball all the time to be effective, it can be just as important to create space for others.
Find a little pocket of space, receive the ball, move it on again, repeat. It?s the sign of a high-quality netballer, one who finds space in the smallest of areas and takes advantage of it immediately. Use this session with video annotations to watch your players grow in the space of just one session.
Movement off of one another is one of the most important things to understand, yet one of the more difficult skills to execute. This session develops players ability to read their teammates and move off them to keep control of the balance of the court to develop sustained attacks.
Space is a vital commodity on the netball court. Teach your players how to create space and take advantage of it with driving leads to make connections and dominate their area.
Regardless of the skills of your defenders, without team cohesion, you'll be sure to ship goals. Create a cohesive defensive unit with this defending session.
Great passes aren't made just the by ball carrier, the movement of the fellow attackers is vital to giving the ball carrier options to penetrate space. Learn how to make effective movements in this session.
