Netball Report 28th of March

On Saturday the 28Th of March Peninsula Piranhas played Osborne Angels. I might add that Osbourne is very good at netball. The Piranhas lost by 34 points with the Score being 35 – 1. Oliva shot our one goal. The whole team played very well but need to improve their catches and need to make space. Well done to Kath who won the coaches award for the week and played very well. Although the umpire wasn’t that fair i would like to encourage all the girls to try their best for next week.

Piranhas B – TEAM

On Saturday the 21th of March the Piranhas Played STM Sugar Babes, which i might add are a very good team. Our team played very well for our first game of the season although we didn’t win. The score was 23 – 1. Olivia shot our one and only goal and we were all very happy for her. For Gabi and Pia it was their first Netball Game they had ever played and were quit good at it, well done girls.Their was no major injuries but i fell and grazed my knee but now i am fine. I also think the team could improve the passes and footwork. Great effort was put in and we had a lot of fun.

Positions

Goal Keeper (GK)
The main task of the Goal Keeper is to defend the goal third to prevent the ball from making it to the goal circle, and to stop a goal being scored. Their opponent is the Goal Shooter.

Tasks:

  • Close “one on one” defence of the goal shooter.
  • Work closely with the Goal Defence in the goal circle.
  • Defend the shot for goal.
  • Rebound missed goals and pass the ball down the court.
  • Take throw-ins from the goal line and sideline.
  • Make attacking moves to take the ball down to the transverse line.
  • Take free pass / penalty pass in the goal third.

It is important for the Goal Keeper to be aware of what is happening out in front of them. This will allow them to read the attacking team’s movements and anticipate any interceptions, thus creating turnovers.

 
Goal Defence (GD)
The main task of the Goal Defence is to defend the attacking moves of their opponent, the Goal Attack, to prevent a goal being scored. The Goal Defence also needs to have good attacking skills, which are important for getting the ball out of the defence third, and assisting the team in attack.

Tasks:

  • Close “one on one” defence of the Goal Attack.
  • Work closely with the Goal Keeper in the goal circle.
  • Defend the shot for goal.
  • Rebound missed shots and pass the ball down the court.
  • Make attacking moves to take the ball down to the team’s goal third.
  • Take appropriate throw-ins / free pass / penalty pass in the centre third.

It is important for the Goal Defence to be aware of what is happening out in front of them. This will allow them to read the attacking team’s movements and anticipate any interceptions, thus creating turnovers.

 
Wing Defence (WD)
The main task of the Wing Defence is to defend the attacking moves of their opponent, the Wing Attack, at the centre pass, around the goal circle and throughout the centre and goal thirds. They should be ready at all times to pick up any tips or deflections created by the circle defenders and they also need to play a supporting back up role for the attackers down court.

Tasks:

  • Close “one on one” defence of the Wing Attack.
  • Force errors, close off spaces and intercept passes.
  • Make attacking moves to take the ball down to the team’s goal third.
  • Take appropriate throw-ins / free pass / penalty pass in the centre third.
 
Centre (C)
The centre is the link player from the defence third to the goal third and plays an important role in both attack and defence. They are allowed to move over the whole court, except the goal circles.

Tasks:

  • Deliver the centre pass.
  • Make strong attacking moves, combining with the WA to deliver the ball to the shooters.
  • Closely defend opposition centre player.
  • Combine with the Wing Defence to create pressure on the opposition at centre passes.
  • Take throw-ins / free pass / penalty pass in the goal third.
 
Wing Attack (WA)
The main task of the Wing Attack is to deliver the ball to the Goal Shooter/Attack using a variety of attacking moves. They are allowed to move in the attacking goal third and the centre third, but not in the goal circle.

Tasks:

  • Obtain the centre pass.
  • Work with the C, GA and GS on attacking strategies.
  • Take throw-ins / free pass / penalty pass in goal third.
  • Feeding the circle.
  • Provide close defending of the opposition WD:
    • at defence throw-ins.
    • after a turnover or interception.
    • at opposition centre passes.
 

Goal Attack (GA)
The Goal Attack shares the goal shooting responsibilities with the Goal Shooter, and is allowed to move within the goal third and centre third. The Goal Attack must also work closely with the WA on the centre pass to gain possession and feed the ball to the GS.

Tasks:

  • Combine with the GS to offer a variety of leads in the goal circle.
  • Work with the C and WA to bring the ball through the centre third and goal third into the circle.
  • Rebound missed shots.
  • Provide close defending of the opposition GD:
    • at defence throw-ins.
    • after a turnover or interception.
    • at opposition centre passes.
 

Goal Shooter (GS)
The main task of the Goal Shooter is to score goals. They are allowed within the goal third only and they must have good space awareness when working in confined areas with the GA. They must also be able to execute a variety of leads and movements in order to break away from the defenders.

Tasks:

  • Work with the GA to create a variety of leads in the goal circle.
  • Work with the GA, WA and C on attacking strategies in the goal third.
  • Rebound missed shots.
  • Defend closely the opposition GK:
    • at goal line throw-ins.
    • after a rebound.
    • after a turnover or interception

What is Netball?

Netball  today is an international sport and is played by two teams of seven players. The Game is based on throwing and catching. The object is to score goals from within a defined area, by throwing a ball into a ring attached to a 3.05 metres (10 feet) high post.

Today the game is the most popular women’s sport in Australia with an estimated one million players nation wide. Although traditionally identified as a sport for women, there is no reason why it cannot be played with mixed teams, and increasingly more boys and men are becoming involved. Even at TPS there are boys that play netball.

At an international level Australia is well respected by over 40 affiliate countries, having won nine of the 12 World Netball Championships held since 1963.

In 1997 the sport entered a new era with the introduction of the National Netball League (Commonwealth Bank Trophy). This competition came to a close in 2007 after 11 years and was replaced in 2008 with the Trans-Tasman competition the ANZ championship.

National Championships are conducted for 17/U, 19/U and 21/U age divisions and the Australian Netball League allows younger players to have regular competition, and the public the opportunity to see some of the world’s best netball on a regular basis.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
