1. and your team a higher chance.
allocated players- There
are 7 positions in netball. All team members play important roles when the game
begins and when the game also resets. All of the 7 players have appointed
netball positions and roles. Each of their playing position restricts where
they can and cannot go on the court, and what they do. They cannot wander
outside the zone and netball court markings for your playing position. A tactic
is if you are playing against another team and you realise they have a better
player, you would have to make sure that your best player is ready to play
against them. This is because obviously your team wants to win and doing this
will help and give you and your team a higher chance.
This is when you want to pass the ball to someone in front of you the player
has to move into space so they can get the ball. If the player doesn’t, the
opposing team has a chance of getting the ball. This would not be good for your
team as we want to prevent the team from getting the ball as much as possible.
3. Feinting/faking (tricking players)- You can do this in a
game as many times as you need to. You trick a player by pretending to go one
way, and then you go the other way that the player goes so they cannot get the
ball. You are tricking the player and make them think that you’re going to be
doing one thing but instead you do another. This can be done both ways, with or
without a ball- it still works however remember that the rules still apply!
4. Holding players to a position or space- Players keep a hold
on other players so they can slyly move into another position. This gives the
other player on the opposing team no chance of receiving the ball, which is obviously
good for you and your team. Another way to do this is to hold the player in
front of you as long as possible, and then pass the ball to someone over the
player. This would leave the player isolated in the middle and with no way of
getting the ball.
5. Having set plays for centre- A way that some
players take advantage of a centre pass is to fake a pass to the wing attack
then quickly change the pass to goal
attack who runs behind wing attack and receives the ball. The team would
practice this whilst training, as their coach would’ve made them go over it a
lot of times before the ‘big game’. This is an advantage because your team has
more a chance than the opposing team at winning the game.
6. Dodging defenders- Split the players
into 4s inside a coned area. The attackers then start with the ball on the
outside of the playing area. To begin with, the attackers feints a movement one
way and then sprints in the opposite direction (to begin with use a passive
defender). After attacker 1 has passed the ball, she then has to do a feint
dodge and run in opposite direction to receive the ball to make sure the
opposing team doesn’t get it. This gives an advantage, because your team will
have possession of the ball for longer than the opposing team.
7. Taking one more step (footwork rule/leave foot off the
ground) closer to post- You cannot place your back foot back down, and if you
do then this is a foul, to avoid this you should keep your back foot up and far
away from the floor .
Taking free passes fast, why- This could get you and your team another point as it’s happening all
quickly and you also have more time to score more points after
1. Marking a free pass player- You can mark another
good player to prevent the opposing team from getting the ball. Or you can
stand in front of the person who has the free pass (whom you are meant to be
marking) within a meter and try and stand over them as much as you can to
prevent the ball being thrown to someone else.
2. Certain positions taking free passes, why- should be taken by a defender or a defensive player so then
the team has longer to go down the court and this would give you more time to
earn extra points and score more goals.
3. Centre marking a stronger player during a centre pass- In order to prevent
the opposing team from getting the ball you and your team mates should close
around the person who is serving the ball to try and get it. In result to this,
your team will most likely get the ball and if they do they have a better
chance of scoring (obviously) and getting a point for your team.
4. Landing split footed- This gives the
players get an option of what foot they can then choose to pivot on and pass
the ball either to the left or the right.
5. Signalling to space- A player will slyly
help another player out on their team by silently signalling the other player
to move into that specific space.
Chest pass- A
chest pass is used in everyday netball games to simply pass the ball to one
another and obviously into the net to shoot a goal. The player will have 2 hands on the ball and then they
will draw the ball back to the chest, with their elbows bent and with their
hands are slightly to the back of the ball to generate power. The player will also step into the pass
again to generate more power and extend the elbows in front of the body Shoulder pass-The shoulder
pass is used to cover bigger distances on the court rather than the
chest pass. The ball is then
thrown at a greater height so it’s another way you can outwit the defenders.
