Josie Gordon GCSE PE Coursework Six Week Training Programme Chosen Activity Netball Name of Player Josie Gordon Position Wing Attack Analysis Identify the important skills/techniques needed for a participant in his/her position/role. Netball is a fast moving skilful, non contact sport based on running, jumping, throwing and catching that requires a number of different fitness components, skills and techniques. General for the sport and specific for the position the participant plays in. Netball players have three main roles, defensive (can only move in the defensive two thirds of the court), central (can move in all three thirds) and attacking (only moving in the attacking two thirds of the court). For this analysis I will be using a wing attack (WA) position. Components of Fitness Cardiovascular Endurance Cardiovascular endurance is about the heart being able to pump oxygen around the body to help keep the fitness level throughout a match. A centre court player would need higher cardiovascular endurance as they have to travel around all three thirds of the court. As WA I will need a certain level of cardiovascular endurance to maintain my fitness level throughout the match. Muscular Endurance Muscular endurance is needed in netball to be able to run quickly to intercept passes also being able to jump constantly throughout the game to intercept and make passes. ...read more.


Skills needed for netball There are a number of different skills used in netball mainly to do with passing the ball. Bounce pass If your opponent is tall a good pass to use is the bounce pass as the ball can be passed under their arms. The ball can only bounce once before reaching your team member. The bounce pass can be disguised as a chest pass as both start from the same position. Good technique is needed to make the pass accurate. A bounce pass can be made with one or two hands. Chest pass The chest pass is a very quick way to get the ball to the other team members as it travels directly to them. It is best used in a very quick attack where the opponents haven't got time to mark closely. Shoulder pass This pass is usually performed with one hand. It is a pass high through the air to a team member. Its can be used to make the pass over defenders heads. It can be used for making longer passes. This pass can be good for the WA to get the ball quickly into the goal attack area. Footwork If you end up facing in the wrong direction after receiving the ball the rules allow you to take one step whilst holding the ball. ...read more.


Analyse and identify in detail the weaknesses of the player/competitor/participant or self. Fitness Levels Cardiovascular Endurance Josie carried out the Coopers Run test which measures stamina. The test is a run around a 200 metre track over a 12 minute period. Josie completed 4 laps. Josie was breathing heavy at the end and was very tired. During a game of netball Josie gets tired towards the end. This affects her skill ability in moving, receiving and passing the ball. It also affects her reaction time. Josie needs to improve her cardiovascular endurance to help improve her stamina levels. Speed Josie needs to be able to improve her speed. During netball she slows down during the game. Improving her stamina will help towards improving her speed. Agility Josie finds it hard to move (dodge) in and out of players. Josie will need to work on how to do this. Skills Josie has a problem with her footwork. She tends to lose balance and co-ordination. This then affects her ability to make a pass. This is an area Josie needs to work on to improve her performance. Josie also has a problem with the high shoulder pass. She is not very accurate when making this type of pass. This could be a problem with her size as she is quite short. Josie also needs to work on being able to stay with an opponent (guarding) when the other team have the ball. ?? ?? ?? ?? 6 ...read more.
