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.

Footwork drills for an 11 year old?

I have a girl who never knows which foot she has landed on and then throws awkwardly rather than foot fault.

How do I stop my shooters from stepping?

I have recently started coaching a u/12 team, something very new to me as I have always coached older kids or adults. My shooters make a lot of stepping errors specifically after a spilt landing. How do I help them remember which foot they put down first?

Ideal Order of creating session Plans for Coaching Under 9's

I have an Under 9 Team with a mixed bag of some good skill level and understanding and others that have very basic skills/Understanding. We have played 3 games this season and won 2. I know all the areas I want to focus on eg,Ball Skills, Footwork, Defending, Attacking, Zones, throw ins, centre passes eg, but is there an order I should create my session plans with these skills flow onto each other. Thanks

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.
