Some extra tips for players with defending┬ároles…

  1. As a defender, keep your head up, arms down and keep your feet moving!
  2. Body up on the opposing player with the ball.
  3. Contest the ball.
  4. Keep communicating with the Goal Defender and Centre for a defensive set-up on a centre pass.

And tips from Team Bath Netball’s Head Coach, Jess Thirlby…

  1. Don’t underestimate the importance of basic skills. These need investing in so they become automatic, robust and consistent under pressure.
  2. One of the most important skills is the ability to turn fully and quickly on court – you can see all the options, make passes without defenders being in the way and it enables you to make quick, clear decisions.
