Working on defence - Shadow and Interception Session

Use this plan to work on the core netball defending skills, with a focus on man-marking - getting players to work on their defensive stance; keeping their knees bent, arms up and body open so they can keep an eye on their player and the game at the same time!

Why is defence important?

Offence sells tickets; Defence wins championships

A solid defence that works well as unit should not be underestimated, the fewer goals your opponents score means the fewer goals your team will need to score to win the game.

What's in the Session?

This session with a game of Cone Touch, getting your defenders use fast footwork to shadow the attacker and get your defenders working using their peripheral vision. After this we then continue to develop in defence, gradually moving towards higher pressure scenarios, working on interceptions and finishing with a couple of defending in pairs games!
