The aim is to encourage all players to participate in bringing the ball down the court


Netball Whole Court Play

Organisation: 7 players working on the whole court, spaced in this area according to their position. GK starts with the ball and passes it to one of two players who have made a move for the ball. The ball continues to move down the court with 2 options being created for the feeder each time. Players need to adjust their positioning and reoffer for the next pass in order to support the play down the court

Coaching Points:

  • Ensure passes are accurate and into the space, enabling the moving player to attack the ball
  • Keep head and eyes up, maintaining an awareness of the players and space around you
  • Make your drives clear by using your arms and moving into the space available, aiming to balance the court at all times



  • Vary the starting position of the GK e.g. goal line throw-in, rebound etc.
  • Add limited defence to the drill, increasing their pressure on each repetition
  • Build the defence to a full court game
  • Incorporate different attacking moves and a variety of passes
