I have a u/14 team with no netbal experience. I myself have never played netbal before. How do I start and what is the most important rules and patterns they need to know?

Archived User Coach


I have a team of 8 10-11 year old girls.  5 of  them have great skill level and are very enthusiastic the other 3 are quite lazy and are not up the skill level of the others. I am finding it really quite hard at training to engage these 3 while not holding the others back. It is also hard to place them on game day without the others getting frustrated. Any ideas. HELP

Pre-season training ideas

Can anybody help with a template/structure for a pre-season training schedule.Our club are evolving from a social netball team if mixed abilities (ages 20-40 ish) to a more competetive club with 1st & 2nd teams. We've never undergone any pre-season training before and I'm a newly qualified UKCC level 2 trying to get more experience at the same time as developing a training plan for the coming season.Any help/tips gratefully accepted.

I have a group of girls 11/12 ...

I have a group of girls 11/12 who have never had a coach and are improving in leaps and bounds each week. My problem is, they don't seem to be able to last the whole game fitness wise. Can you suggest any fitness drills for a group of lazy girls who do not enjoy the fitness aspect of the training session...(some of them walk their warm-ups). The majority of them are in high school and have that dreadful "i'm good" attitude. Any suggestions graetly appreciated

Finals Coaching Tips? | Sportp...

Hi, My two team of girls are having a great season and will be heading into finals in 6 rounds, as a coach this is first time i have coached finals. My question is about positions and subs, do you play fair all over for the whole game or do you put your best team on court for most of the game, playing those that don't fit into the best line up on for minimum time - like the first quarter?i have one team of 8 (Age group Under 19's) , and one team of 9 Seniors (A2) which i play/coach in? Any tips would be helpful.

Training with kids and parents...

Hi, This week I'm planning an extra fun training session for my U9's. After an all day carnival on the weekend, I thought having the parents join in our session could be fun. Has anybody done this and got any good ideas for games that would work for the kids and parents - any ideas for fun ways to modify the rules for a full court game that would even up the girls and parent's skills would be appreciated too. Thanks in advance.

Footwork problem! | Sportplan

Hi, I have a lady in my team who keeps getting pulled up for footwork (dragging)! i cant get to many matches and she doesnt do it in training, i videoed a game to see what the problem was and it seems that she has a very wide landing stance when on the run, almost as if she needs to take another step, ive tried to encourage her (and done a drill) to land on outside feet and small step footwork patterns etc but nothing seems to be working! Has anyone ever had the same problem?! Any ideas?!?! Sarah %3A)

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

Debbie Cross Australia

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
