I am just about to start coaching a team of 7-8yr old?

I am just about to start coaching a team of 7-8yr old kids in netball. None of them have played before and I want to make it as fun as possible for them. What are some games/drills can i play with them that arent too complicated but help them learn the game of netball and develop their skills?

Bib tag and basic tag are good for warming up. Piggy in the middle is a good game to teach interception and getting free. Shooting competitions. General relay type games. I also use a game that doesn't have a name to get them warmed up.... line them up along the sideline and they have to run if something you shout out applies to them. It makes them listen and gets them running.. i.e. run if you are wearing blue, run if you have a brother, run if you have a dog...... they enjoy that...... followed by some dynamic stretches.
