The Sportplan Team
to answer this post it would be good to know the age of your team. my daughter played in a school team and didnt like it as most of the kids use it to get out of school work with only a small handfull of kids who actually want to play and learn. so the key is to inspire and create boundarys for the kids and that if they want to be in the team and get on the court they have to do the work. if they are young like around 10-12yrs with minimal netball skills, start with basic passing and catching skills, conscentrating on good balance, and footwork. teach them about the positions on the court and about not crowding the play but to stay spread out. running forward to meet the ball rather than staying stationary and calling. basic defence, which is in front defence and staying close to your player. the 3ft rule and distance before arms. and moving around the circle for your shooters. all of these skills can be taught using the drills found on this site or others. just start with simple fitness and passing and catching and build on their skills. the biggest thing though is to make sure they respect you and your boundarys. dont put up with poor attitude, and follow through with your conscequences. (but make sure they are appropriate). netball is suppose to be fun, but it without disciplin and skills, then they wont be successful as a team.
