Where do I begin coaching a 4/5 team?

I have just taken on a 4/5 beginner netball team. Any advice on where to begin?

Start with minimal basics!! Teach things like how to jump and land safely, catching, throwing. Footwork can be taught through games like river bank and stuck in the mud. Catching and throwing I've found effective to be taught in progression. Start with a bean bag, then a tennis ball, a soft spikey ball then a netball. Girls aren't as scared to catch it after progressing through the different sizes. Also a brick wall comes in handy for passing against for developing strength. Hope that helps!!
