Split your players into two teams. The fielding side will need a bowler, a back stop and a player on first base. The rest of the fielders can stand where they like. This game start with a bowl to the hands of the first batting player. The batting player should stand with open hands and catch the ball before throwing it into the fielding area. After throwing the ball out the batting player runs around as many bases as they can. Rules: Players score a point for their team for every complete run they make. Players can be caught or run out in the normal manner. Each player has two goes each before the teams swap around.
Divide your players into two equal teams, one team fields while the other team bats. The coach bowls the ball (underarm) to the batter who must catch the ball before then underarm throwing the ball into the field, instead of hitting the ball. If a batter drops the ball they can only run to first base. In order to get players out the batters can be stumped or caught out.
Teams of 4 try and throw the ball across a pitch as quickly as possible, not missing any players out. The first team to throw the ball 10 times across the pitch is the winner.
Set Up: 4 players - bowler, batter, back stop, and 1st post. Rounders balls, post, cones. The Drill: Bowler bowls the ball to the batter (batting with a cone). They attemt to tip it through to the back stop to take. The backstop reacting to the tip off the cone sends the ball to 1st post. Bowler bowls 6 good balls then the players rotate.
Knees bent, ball released inside the square and shoulders and hip in line. Look for a good pendulum motion when bowling. The ball should reach the recipient between knee and the top of their head height, otherwise it will be classed as a no ball.

As someone who is new to coaching this site was just what I needed, drills that I can study on the PC and then take with confidence to my training sessions.
Wow what a great website, I have found sportplan an important tool for me when planning my netball sessions with my netball team.

Thank you sportplan I hope to continue to use your helpful tips and to learn more about improving my teams netball skills. Thanks again....keep it up....
I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.
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.
I can't get enough of the Sportplan, It has given me back the enthusiasm i was starting to lose. My girls are so keen and are ready at 14 to take the next up in their game. Sportplan will help no end.
