Centre Pass (first receiver WA) - Option 3

I found this service to be excellent and it was of great help when...
Jo, Netball Coach

DESCRIPTION

WA receives Centre pass in Centre Third, while GA leads out then cuts back for run into shooting circle.  WD should also lead out for Centre pass, but GD should only come out if needed.

C leads down the middle to receive second pass from WA.

WA leads towards C, props and drops to baseline corner where they receive a lob pass from C.

GS leads to their right, cuts back towards WA.  WA now has three passing options - Lob a pass into GA on the fly, bounce pass to GS, or a lob to GS on the cut back. Non-receiving shooter boxes out.

Timing - C, WA and GS need to work quickly to ensure that GA arrives in the circle at the right time.

COACHING POINTS

GA and WA should position themselves on the inside of their opposing players for centre pass set up.  This enables them to either cut off their defenders, by leading out; or allows them to get the jump on their defenders by leading in.

GS should always position themselves in the centre of the circle, in the top half of the circle.

WA and C should be at 45 degree angle on the circle to each other at all times.  They should not leave circle edge until ball has gone through the net, or there is a turn over.

Once ball is released into the Attacking third, WD and GD should position themselves on the transverse line, dropping back only when the ball is turned over and heading back down the court.
