How do I rotate 8 girls for netball

How do I rotate 8 girls for netball

I play all 8, with 2 having half a game each.  This is shared for the whole season.  Once you play all teams, the 2nd round you'll have more of an idea when to give your best players a rest. 

I play all 8 with 4 having a full game and 4 having 3/4's each. I find this way that haivng stronger players off for a 1/4 each doesn't affect the game too much. You can still keep players in positions for most of the game giving some stability. The following week I reverse it. I really don't like players having 1/2 a game but that is just me :-) 

I hope this helps(: xx

Hi,

I find 8 players easy - i rotate the GS/GA and GK/GD at half time or each quarter: these 4 girls have a full game, but half is in a third.  Then, four players share C, WA, WD - three quarters each.  Depending on the individuals, you could either give each girls 1 quarter in centre, or two girls half centre each.  some girls find it confusing, and are better in the one position for the game.

I do find it harder when there are 9 players - but again, divide the team into mid court and circle players, and give the circle players at least 1 quarter as GA or GD.  one girl gets a full game - she plays 3 at GK and 1 at GD.
