How do you analyse a netball game?

 Ive been watching recorded footage of our games (Div 1) and national series (ANZ Championships) and was wondering how I can analyse these games to teach my players how to analyse their own games by also viewing the footage?

You could put them into groups shooters, defences and middies and get them to take stats relating to their area of play and to them personally.  Then get them to analyse together as groups and then as a team once they have looked at the stats.  I am recording my rep team this weekend and and at practice next week we will view the game, take stats and then discuss our outcome.  Hope that helps.

I think Kim's answer was a really good one, taking stats is a great starting point. Looking at each area of play and the successes and failures in each third is a good way of breaking the whole game down. For all players to analyse team weaknesses (not individual player - that is the coach's job) and what other options/tactics could have been used to overcome them is very educational and more likely to be remembered for future use. Analysing strengths is good positive feedback but not really a useful learning tool. Once each area's strengths and weaknesses are establilshed, players can then put it all together and gain a better understanding of the flow on effect of each player's movements and decisions including those not directly involved in the current play being analysed. By that I mean, how setting up further down the court, drawing defenders out of area to create future passing opportunities, communicating set plays to each other and so on can facilitate the passage of play. It really depends on the level of understanding your team has and each player's own skill level as to how far you can take it.
