Gr 1 coaching. Whats the first thing to teach them.

where do you start coaching Gr 1 netball. I need some tips please.

Hi Lindie,

With young athletes it is important to explain the basics. This includes: 
The rules
The different positions and where they are allowed
The footwork rule 
Holding the ball for 3 seconds 
Distance - maintain a 3ft distance while doing 2nd stage arms over defence 
No contact 

- You can them move on to explain the main passes:
Chest pass
Shoulder pass
Overhead pass
Bounce pass 

Once they have understood these you can then move onto some simple drills: 
- Footwork and Pivot
- Passing and Moving
- Catch and Turn
- Quick Footwork 
- Changing Direction

Hope this helps.
