I have a mixed team of 9 yr olds. Some who have never?

I have a mixed team of 9 yr olds. Some who have never played and others who have played 3 terms and are good at anticipating, finding space etc etc. As we need to rotate positions each quarter, some quarters with combinations do really well with free flowing passes. Other quarters with different combinations, the midcourt movement is like bees to a honey pot. Any suggestions re how to encourage the whole team to find space, anticipate moves, work as a team and not run after the ball (small ask!) Thnx

Advice on becoming a better GA

Hi, I am a 13 year old girl who plays netball every Saturday. I have been playing netball as a centre since I was about 9 yrs old. When I moved teams I changed to GA cause they needed a GA. I had also been playing basketball so when I moved into GA I shot like a basketballer. I only just recently started trying to shoot like a netballer, but it is't really working. Our GS is usually the player that shoots most of our goals but she broke 2 fingers and is out for the finals. I need some advice to help me to be a better GA and step up a shoot lots of goals to see our team go into the grand final.I need help learning to shoot better but my coach is young and plays defence. p.s. I am the only other shooter in my team.

Pulling up contact. My GD was blocking the GA

Pulling up contact. My GD was blocking the GA from getting close to the ring today by getting in her way. The WA had the ball on the edge of the circle and had not made the pass but the GA pushed into my GD to get through so I gave a penalty pass to my team where the push happened. The other umpire seemed to think that this was not affecting the movement of the ball. Was I right to give us the ball and award a penalty pass, despite the WA not having passed yet?

How to improve goalers movement in the ring?

i coach an under 15s team and my gaolers are struggling to move in the ring. They seem only make straight leads and do not get in front. Are there any drills or advice to help my gaolers move efficiently in the ring?

Jenn Westmorland Coach, Australia

Is this closed marking or open marking the player?

In the drills GK dancing & Prevent the Middle Pass..is the defence Open Marking(angled toward the passer)? If they are closed marking is this a progression? Is it harder? I prefer closed marking but for a beginner is this going to be harder? Thanks. I am new to coaching & loving Sportplan:)

Drills for movement in the attacking circle?

What are the best drills to train GS and GA timely movement in the attacking circle?

D Agius Coach, Malta

Contact on the Ball by GD?

My GD is tall and has a very good stretch when marking the shoot. She anticipates well, and when she sees the shoot about to release the ball, times her action and from her stretch, flicks her hand to try to deflect the ball from its path. In a recent game, she was continually pulled for contact when doing this. She felt either the shoot had raised the ball up into her hands (and it should have been the GD's possession), or the shoot had actually released the ball before she then deflected it, rather than her knocking the ball from the shoots possession. The umpire after the game was happy to discuss and said the GD had been penalised for knocking the ball out of the shoots hands, and should have stuck with the stretch and not added the flick. Any advice?

GS/GA Movement to get into a shooting position

Hi everyone, I'm a GS/GA and I shoot well but I struggle to make opportunities for myself to shoot in games. It is slightly better when I play GS if i stay in the circle, but when I play GA or come out, it has happened that I haven't shot at all. I either get blocked from going in the circle straight away or am too slow to position myself. Could anyone give me some pointers about basic movement? I have watching videos where players roll/cut - if a player is marking you face on and blocking you from entering the D, would that be how I get around them? Could you give me some advice on how to improve from here? Thank you. Asked using Sportplan on Mobile

Obstruction rules

Is it obstruction if the defending player is standing next to the person in possession of the ball with their arms down ie. not attempting to defend or intercept the ball whilst mid-court? There is a lot of mixed messaging from umpires around this rule, particularly if it occurs within goals with some umpires saying as long as you're not putting your hands up to defend the ball or standing in front of them then it is not obstruction to then being called obstruction in instances decribed above.

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.
