Summative assignment - Netball.

Extracts from this document...


Summative Assignment- Netball 1. Bounce Pass: This is when the player with possession of the ball places one foot in front of the other about 3 feet apart, and bends down to a lunge. Using their outside arm, the ball is thrown, bouncing at about two thirds of the way towards their target. This pass is often used in the goal circle by a centre or wing attack on the circle. Lob: This pass is used when a player wishes to get the ball to a team member, up and over any obstacles in the path of the intended throw. The player receiving the ball stands on their player (behind them), raises their arm to inform the player with possession of the ball that they are ready to take the pass. The ball is thrown high into the air, and this is when the player to receive the ball steps back, reaches up and takes the pass, leaving their opponent behind. 2. The make up of a netball court: When the whistle blows, the GA and WA either both lead out towards the centre for the pass, and they might negotiate with each other and decide on a particular tactic to gain the most efficient way of getting the ball down their end quickly. ...read more.


WA is not allowed in the goal circle, though they are to stand on the ring and help out the shooters. WD (Wing Defence) - WD is to defend WA of the opposing team. WD is to try to block any passes used in the centre third as well as those in the defending goal third, and try to bring the ball down their own end. Like WA, WD is not allowed in the goal circle, and is to try to block the lead of the WA at the centre pass. C (Centre) - C must be fit enough to be able to run up and down the court all game chasing the ball from both ends. C must keep the ball rolling from defence to attack end and vice versa, helping out the goalies by standing ready on the circle. The C player must take the centre pass in the middle of the circle when a team scores a goal or at the beginning of a new quarter or match. 5. One-on-one defending of the player without the ball is the technique used in netball to prevent the ball from being delivered to the player on the opposing team. The defending player is to try to read the pass of the player with possession of the ball and do their best to see that person gets held time, or to ...read more.


whilst the ball is thrown. The GK is then free to move. d) The blue WA jumps into the air to catch a high pass and accidentally knocks the red WD in his/her efforts to get the ball. This would be called as contact, and the blue WA would need to stand aside while the WD (or whoever wishes to take the pass) passes off the ball. e) The red centre is taking a penalty pass with the blue centre who had contacted the red WA, standing alongside. The blue centre puts up his/her hands and tries to intercept the pass. The blue centre is not allowed to defend, so the pass would need to be taken again with the centre this time standing inactive along side. f) The red GD overbalances on the centre third line and falls into the goal third at the red team's shooting end. This is called as offside, and the other team is to take the pass at the point in which the GD overbalanced. GD does not need to stand aside for this. 9. The following program is that of a centre player of a serious netball team. This pre-season fitness conditioning program is designed to improve the fitness needs of a centre player, which are: * Cardiovascular fitness * Muscular endurance * Muscular power * General skill development. ...read more.
