A Great Term of Netball at Skippers

Posted: 15th February 2013 | Category: Sports

Timing and communication are vital skills to acquire in Netball, particularly as you only have three seconds in which to execute the perfect pass! In the drill shown in the video below, known as ‘The Box’, the U11 team at Skippers are learning to time their moves to coincide with the ball carrier being in a well balanced position ready to release the ball.  This then translates directly into a game situation. The girls are learning to both rely on and support each other which is the beauty of team sport and a great life skill too!
