Handling and Passing - Fun Skills, Games and Challenges

Rating: 4
from 24 members ratings

Are your players up for a challenge? Use these fun games and challenges to test your players' passing accuracy, speed and their ball handling.

You'll need one ball per player for this session, as players work individually, in pairs and small groups on their lead passing accuracy and footwork skills.

Junior players will love the games in this plan, and they are great for encouraging communication between players. Older players will relish the challenge aspect of the drills and game - as they focus on mastering these simple skills under pressure situations (such as concentrating on two balls at the same time).

What's in the session?

Starting with 3 individual ball skill warm ups to improve your players' handling skills, before then working in pairs and small groups to complete 7 fun games and challenges that test their ability to adopt a variety of passes as well as enable them to switch between passes quickly if needed

With over 10 netball drills and games this plan gives you plenty to get your teeth stuck into. You can use the coaching plan in its entirety, or pick and choose elements to add to your next training.

We're off season at the moment, so I can't trial it out, but some of the drills look really productive. I can't get my head around how Challenge 3 is going to work....for some reason it just seems confusing to me. The other Challenge drills look good though.

Hi Lyn, in challenge 3 players have to remember which player was stood to their left in the circle, before you ask them to change positions. So if you were stood to my left in the circle before we changed positions I would have to pass the ball to you once the drill starts (so it's a test of your players' memory and concentration).
