Off season training

Hi all, At the end of this season we selected our rep teams in readiness for the next years competitions and to ensure that all girls had time to organise and commit to representative teams. We have played in a social league for a few weeks and will break for the Christmas period in two weeks time returning in mid February. I am keen to keep the girls active, and was wondering if anyone has documented an off season training plan as such. I would like to get the girls to concentrate on footwork , ( use of skipping rope) and fitness, as well as basic ball skills, but am not sure what expectations i should have with them ? They are all 14 yrs old. Thanks in advance Gary

extra netball training at home?

I would like to give my girls some extra training to do at home to help build up their core strength, arm strength, speed and balance on the court. Any suggestions as to what i can give them. They are 13 and are all keen for it. I just need something that they can do that lasts no longer than 30min and that they can do about 3 times a week. That way if training is cancelled due to rain they can still do a netball based workout at home.

What is would make a good fitness/circuit session for U13 players?

I am just wondering if anyone has a good fitness lesson for U.13's. I've got a new team with some super fit girls and some very unfit girls. Their skills are as widely mixed as their fitness abilities and I'm struggling knowing what I can do to accommodate all girls. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

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.
