How to improve teamwork on the court with my U14/15 team?

I coach a team of 14/15 year old girls who a friends outside of school as well as on the court, however they don't work well as a team and I want to do some sort of team building to improve their talking on the court and overall help them to work better on the court.

An important thing is that they know each other and can anticipate each other, on a rainy day try simple team building exercises such as two truths one lie or friend match quizzes. Hot potatoe is also a good team building exercise. encorperating prizzes always works too! x

I videod the girls playing a match and then they had a slumber party that night with lots of pizza, chips and lollies.  They danced around the loungeroom to Gangnam Style and watched themselves on video.  They had so much fun that they want to do it again this year.

None of my team knew each other on or off the court.  It was a fantastic team building excercise as they picked up things they were doing wrong on court and also encouraged each other when something great happened on the video.   I will definitely be re-doing this excercise again.  Hope it works for you too!

try taking them off court and doing something that isnt netball.  like beach soccer or volleyball.  you could also have competitions about most supportive on court, or loudest (in a positive way) on court for training (or games).  have everything they do about talking to each other on court.  that to catch the ball they have to call to other players, or call out the play if they can see someone making a good break.  if they dont then the team does some strength, or fitness drill. be creative and see what works with them.
