Shooting partners screening in the goal circle?

Hi, Wondering if any one can clarify the ruling for shooting partners screening in the goal circle? Our GA has screened effectively so far this season but was pulled by the umpire today when screening the GS? She hadn't contacted either defender, and was at 90cm distance, so we were left a little confused?? Is there a set distance they need to be away from their shooting partner?? She was told she was too close and a penalty pass given to the defender. Advice greatly appreciated %3A)

I'm Elena from Fiji and I'm 48 years of age,I'm playing in the premier netball and my daughter playing for school and club games with me.I would love to teach my daughter about shooting because she likes shooting, the movement, the double pass,throw in,in and out in the circle. She is playing wd now.I know she is a good shooter if I teach her and some of her mates.How do I motivate her to do her best in the court?

Shooting set up drills and movement in the circle

I need shooting drills for around the circle to help my team on weekends. I don't want drills that have nothing to do with moving the ball around the circle and shooting. I want shooting set ups for game day please.

How do I get over my mental rut and self doubt when shooting?

Two months ago I started playing netball again after having my baby. Pre baby I was a good goaler, always got my shots in no matter where I was in the circle. First few games back I did okay with my movement and my shooting was pretty good considering also.Then one game I was really off with my shots, ever since then every single time i play, I over think and doubt my shooting. As a result I miss the ring completley and therefore fall more into this mental block.How do I get over this and get my ‘flow’ back? Asked using Sportplan on Mobile

What is the best technique to shoot perfectly?

I am asking this question because every time I do netball everyone in my team always expect me to have an perfect shoot but I always miss just because I am good basketball that doesn't mean I am good at netball

confidence with shooting

I coach a player who practices shooting basically every day but cannot get them in when she is playing. The problem isn't to do with her technique but rather her confidence in her abilities is lacking. How can I build her confidence?

Long Range Shooting over a Defender

I'm a short GA (5'3) and I can shoot decently from mid range and short range (although mid range is where I prefer shooting from). I'd like to get better at long range shooting, but I'm not really sure how. I can get in long goals sometimes when I'm practicing at the post but during training with a defender (who is tall), it is a very hard task. During matches, it's closer to impossible, although I've gotten the occasional long goal in because the defender decided to stand for a rebound instead of marking haha. But I'd like to be able to get these goals in consistently [over a defender] – not just because it was a lucky shot. Any tips on how? It'd be appreciated.

Shooting challenge to do at ho...

My 3 shooters are having a bit of a case of the yips. Although they do practice at home I am looking at a challenge each of them could do in their own time during the week & then compare results at the end of the week. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Shooting options on tall goal ...

How can GS and GA help each other in circle when defenders are tall, intimidating and high contact (ie putting hand on ball when setting up to shoot, putting hand over face). Can GA stand between GS and GK to give GS a clearer shot?

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.
