The aim is to intercept the second ball from a centre pass.


Netball Defensive Play

Organisation:  Goal Defence (GD) and Wing Defence (WD) are on the outside of the attackers along the line. Centre (C) second stage defends the opposing C. On whistle Goal attack (GA) drives out to receive the first pass whilst Wing Attack (WA) drives across the court to receive the second pass. After GA has received the ball the GD drops back to towards the WA to intercept the second pass.

Coaching Points


  • WD should verbally direct GD back towards the WA.




  • WA receives the first ball rather than the GA, so WD then drops back to intercept the second ball.
