Netball Drill Demonstration
Working in a small space, first practise the body angles without a ball.
Drill 1 - Straight Drive
A driving hard up in a sraight line, then pulling back in straight line. D to angle body so that they always see A and F.
Drill 2 - Angled Drive
D driving at angle with the A but not overstepping so that when A runs back, the D can force them back in straight line and not allow the cut back to the centre channel A should be on the D's back.
Do both sides for both drills. Start slower then intensify. Then add in a ball!
When you add in ball, key will be accepting that the A recieving the ball high (close to F) is fine, but preventing that ground-gaining back pass must be prevented and that's the big victory!
Still working in a small space, work solidly to prevent the back pass. A can move in any direction, but D trying to dictate the space. Work for about 25 seconds, then swap or reset. It's high intensity! How many lifted back passes can the D prevent or intecept?
- Feet under body
- Angled body
- Hips turning so always in direction of travel
- Eyes on ball and attacker at all times!
- Get the attacker on your back!
- What is a success? You can't get every ball, so accept that forcing a short ball and preventing a long ball is a victory!
