The definition of a long ball is a one or two handed shoulder pass over a long distance.
It is important for players to determine if the length of the pass should be either a chest pass or a shoulder pass. To get players reacting automatically to distance and the appropriate pass, players need constant practice.
Every team sport has set moves. In netball they are call court systems.
A system recognises individual responsibility enabling each team member to understand their role. A system also provides a base movement and eliminates confusion of who is expected to receive what pass. It is also a coaching tool to identify breakdowns on the court.
Communication is very important in a team game. Off court the players talk non stop yet there can be silence when they are playing.
This session encourages players to talk to each other and for them to get used to communicating without offending each other. Tactical and positive comments are both great tools and can create a close team.
I have been lucky enough to have known and been coached by Melissa for the past 15 years.
I highly recommend Melissa and her techniques to any aspiring netball or coach and am so grateful that we met on that fateful day all those years ago.
