How can I improve lob passing in netball with games approach??

During my class session, few of my students are poor in lob passing. Their technique of passing is wrong. How can I improve their lob passing skill, with an interesting games approach?

Hi Kalai,

Here on Sportplan, we have a number of drills to help you with this. One is this one hand lob passing drill here, which will improve your team`s technique. This will encourage them more to flick their wrist in the movement of a lob pass, and also help pass accurately.

For more ideas, search our Netball drills.

Hope that helps!

One hand lob pass

DESCRIPTION
Put your players into pairs, about 2-3 metres apart from one another with one ball. Using one hand players must lob pass to one another (don't forget to transfer your weight onto your front foot when passing).

the lob is a tough pass to get right. it should be high and leave the feeder on an angel to a point about 1m behind the receiver and then drop straight down. the receiver needs to be zoning/blocking their player in a side on position with their should pointing towards the space they want to catch the ball in. they should not move until the ball is directly above them and is dropping. their footwork should be a side shuffle (or in dance terms, a side chassey) and they should be reaching (jumping) to catch the ball in the space they were keeping free of their defence player. it is an almost impossible pass to intercept or defend if done correctly. hope that helps.
