I have just started coaching an under 11 team and don't?

I have just started coaching an under 11 team and don't quite know where to start. I have a some girls who have never and others who started last year. I have limited time before each game to do training. Does anyone have some suggestions on where I should start? There seems to be so many things they need to learn and not enough time to teach them.

at that age i would concentrate on polishing the basics of the game because that will help them greatly later in their netball career not only their netball skills but also their body. always make sure you train both sides so if they practise throwing with their right then practise with their left and likewise with running and leading drills, watch the stepping, landing, leading, defending complies with the rules. once you think they have achieved well enough in these areas start to focus on specific training and game tactics. all the best and great to here a new coach giving it a go.

start with the basics like passing (both hands) and making sure they know the rules of the game. Then, work on defending, dodging, shooting, stepping/pivoting, and all-round fitness. When they can do this, work on game plan like how to take the centre pass and where each player should be in each situation and game tactics.
