why is communication good in netball

Communication importantce-verbal

Hi Katie.

Communication between players is important in Netball as it can help give teammates extra information they might not have picked up themselves. For example a player in possession of the ball might not know that a player behind them is free to receive a pass and verbal communication can let the player in possession know that. Here's a good drill to use to practice this. Hope that helps!

Build Communication on Court

Description:

Player 1 turns their back to players 2 and 3 and receives the ball from X.

On receiving the ball player 1 pivots.

Players 2 and 3 both make strong sideways movements, but only 1 of them calls for the ball. Player 1 passes to this player.


Coaching Points:

Ensure players 2 and 3 communicate before each repetition so they know which of them will call for the ball each time (this can be done with hand gestures to avoid player 1 overhearing!)

Swap player roles after 10 repetitions.
