communication in netball

what communication is more important in netball verbal or non verbal?????????????

Hi there,

As a coach I find that both verbal and non-verbal communication can be beneficial for your team, especially during matches!

The benefit of non-verbal communication above verbal is that it can be used to deceive the opposition. For example during a match, a player might use hand signals to the player with the ball to indicate where they will move to create space so a pass is not intercepted by their defending player. 

This is particularly useful during the centre pass. 

Sometimes non-verbal is not enough and players need  to shout at their players to alert them that they are free and can receive a pass. 

It is definitely something that you should work to establish during your training sessions

Hope that helps!

depends once age of the players.  verbal is much easier to coach for the younger players and is an important skill for them to have, but as they get older then non-verbal queues are important as you don't wish to give away your intentions of where you want the ball to be passed.
