- Readying yourself to
- Shooting the ball
Do you envy the girl or boy who can always play GS (goal shooter) or GA (goal attack) and score all her or his shots in a netball match? By following these steps, you can be a shooting star on court.
- Check your balance. It is important to have good balance
- Have your elbows in a right angle so you can see your elbows, have the ball above your head.
- Move your hands backwards and push upwards and forwards as you release the ball, like an overhead pass.
- Make sure to bend your knees and rise as you shoot, to gain extra power.
- Always make sure you can get the rebound.
- Hold the ball in your strong hand and with the other hand aim with your fingers bending so it looks like they are in the hoop then shoot.
- Aim at the inner rim of the ring when shooting the ball.
- Practice using one hand.
- Try to find the shooting position that suits you best. Try shooting in a few different ways and use the best position for you.
- When releasing the netball, give it some backspin to give the shot more control.
- Don't look at anything. Just look at the ring.
- Look at both the ball and ring and remember to bend.
- Focus on the hoop! Ignore any distractions...
- Put your hand up as soon as the ball is out of your hands, so if you don't get it in you can have another try.
- You must do the correct warm ups and cool downs before and after netball matches.
- Netball (size 5)
- Netball ring (not basketball as they are bigger and make it easier to shoot and they have a back board)
