What is the best way to rotate nine girls age 12

What is the best way to rotate nine girls age 12

Hi Gail,

Below are some recently answered questions on a similar rotational theme:

  1. How to rotate 9 players in an U15 team?
  2. How to do a roster to rotate 10 netball players?
  3. Coaching 9-10 year olds, what's best - to rotate?
  4. How do I rotate a team of 8 players?

Hope these links help with your U12s!

there are a number of factors to consider here Gail.  are you playing competetive for fun netball?  do you have players who can fill the position of the one you are taking off the court?  ie do you have more than 2 shooters, or defence players?  does everyone try equally hard at training or are there some slackers who either dont turn up, or train well?  

i have 9 in my team.  they are aged from 13-16.  i prefer the fair method during the season, so everyone gets equal court time PROVIDED, they turn up to training, and train hard.  those who do those 2 things will get the most court time.  we also have enough players who can fill the spots when we take players off the court.  so we have spare shooters and defence players.

so basically each week 1 player will get a full game.  everyone else will lose a quarter.  

last year with my under 12s we had 9 players, but we didnt have any backup shooters, so they rarely came off the court, and the rest of the team rotated.  1 player each week had to sit off half a game.  thats life.

hope that helps.
