Analysis of Performance - Netball.

Extracts from this document...


Analysis of Performance Performer's name: Maisie Q Activity to be analysed: Netball Game (WA) Skills and Techniques Required: To play a sound game of Netball, you need a range of both attacking and defensive skills. There are many other aspects, which are required to ensure a good Netball player. For example agility. This is a very important component, as agility is needed in a variety of circumstances. A Netball player needs to be able to get free and receive a pass from their team member. To do this, a high level of agility is required. Also, a high level of co-ordination is needed to be a good Netball player. This is because, it is sometimes necessary to receive a pass whilst running and also landing with the correct footwork, and therefore co-ordination is an essential and important component. Balance is also a key aspect of a Netball player. The ability to maintain equilibrium is needed to receive passes that may not have come whilst in a comfortable position. Another important aspect of Netball is the reaction time of a player. For example, situations may occur when a player will need to react, either to a mistake made by the opponents or by a member of her own team. Endurance also plays an important role to many members on the team. ...read more.


They can stretch the muscles and jog slowly. This gets the blood flowing to the muscles. After the game cooling down is also necessary to bring down the heart rate and to bring the pulse rate back to normal. This is also done by jogging slowly and stretching the muscles. Temperament: Keeping a cool head whilst playing Netball is necessary. Netball involves interaction between two different teams, it is important that whilst winning or loosing a game, a positive, level headed and determined approach is kept even till the end of the game. Analysis of Performance of Maisie Q (WA) Skills and Technique: Maisie is a very competitive player. Especially when it's the team's centre pass, Maisie tries to get free, as she needs to get the ball. She marks her opponents very closely and is very successful during most occasions. Her ability to intercept passes made by the opponent is particularly good. On several occasions, the opponents have lost position of the ball due to Maisie intercepting a pass. Tactics: In this aspect of Maisie's game, she rates very highly. However this being said, she still has much room for improvement For example it would be a good idea for Maisie to jump for an oncoming ball rather than waiting and watching it drop into her hands. This is a common problem in Netball players as it is easier to wait for a pass than to jump up and snatch it. ...read more.


This involves exercising at a certain time (work interval), then resting for a certain Period (rest interval) in order for her to recover. For the last week, she should use interval training again but this time increase the length of the work interval whilst keeping other factors the same, or decrease the length of the rest interval. This will help improve both the Aerobic and her anaerobic system. Fitness: Maisie needs to improve on her cardiovascular endurance as she sometimes stops during a game to catch her breath. She can achieve this by following a regular training programme of running/jogging three times a week. She will need to work for at least twenty minutes during which time she raises her pulse to at least 60% of its' maximum. After this, she should throw a Netball (50 times) towards a wall ranging from overhead passes to bounce passes, standing 10m away from it. Catching it quickly, running towards the wall and with the correct footwork. This is an example of a skill related improvement exercise as it will improve her speed and co-ordination. This should also help her especially when it comes to the end of a game. Tactics: Doing the above exercise would also help on Maisie's tactics as she would leave the habit of waiting for the ball to fall in her hand and will be used to running towards the ball. She will also have learned to do correct footwork even though she is tired. By Pelumi Olaosun ...read more.
