hi, i am new to coaching and our girls are only 7,?

hi, i am new to coaching and our girls are only 7, this is their first season and are playing Netta Netball which is a slight variation to netball, ie, lower goal post, how do i teach them to get in front or to get the ball if their girl is a lot taller, they need to learn defending and getting in front to get the ball but dont know how to explain to them.

At this age, the first rule has to be FUN! If they are only 7 you can afford to just put them on court to "have a go". You can do simple drills to make them move towards the player with the ball i.e. run away from the feeder to a marker, then turn and run back towards the player for a pass so they get a feel for moving towards rather than away and that should take them in front of the defender!
