Split your group into two teams: A throwing team and a fielding team. The fielders have to put one player by each post and the rest in the field. Players from the other team have 1 ball each. Each player from the throwing team has to come into the batting square and call out which base they are going to run to. Immediately after call out they must then throw the ball to one of the fielders after which they have to try and beat the ball to the post. The ball then gets thrown back to the square for the next player to call, throw and run.
1 player batting against 4 fielders. Game starts by the bowler bowling a good bowl towards the batter who hits the ball into the direstion of the 2 fielders. Rounders are scored if the batter runs around the bowler and back or if the batter hits the ball in between the 2 cones (3 and 4) by the 2 fielders on the left. Fielders can score a point by touchjing cone 1 with the ball before the batter gets back having run round the bowler.
1 catcher, 5 attackers, and 3 defenders. Cones, tennis ball or rounders ball. There are always more attackers than defenders. Catcher starts in the inner circle and is on the same team as the attackers. The 3 defenders are in the next ring, and the rest of the attackers are in the outer ring. The attackers aim to get the ball to the catcher, and for the defenders to try and intercept. Attackers may pass the ball around the outside of the circle to each other to create space. Teams can move but must stay in their own circle. They are not allowed in anyones else's. Underarm throwing only. Points System: Defenders 1 point for a touch, and 5 points for a catch. Attackers get 1 point every time the catcher receives the ball.
Set up: 4 posts are set up in the shape of a diamond. Each post being 9 metres from the centre of the diamond. You need 3 teams of 4, 4 bats and 1 ball. Batting team each stand at a post. The other 2 teams take the bowler and fielding roles. The Drill: The bowler decides who to bowl to first, and the remaining 3 batters stand behind the post and make contact with it. The bowler bowls the ball for the batter to hit. The fielders can field the ball into any post to get any of the batters out. If a batter is out then their team loses 4 points. 1 point is scored for every post a batter reaches. Each team of 4 faces 6 good balls and the score is added up. After each ball the bowler can decide which batter to bowl to (it can be any of the 4 batters). The fielding team must react and move position, depending on which batter the bowler is bowling to. After 6 good balls the next team goes into bat.
Split the group into teams of 5. One team throwing the ball around posts. One team running around the posts. The ball starts by the batting square and has to be thrown to post one then 2 then 3 then 4 then back to the batting square. The running team have to run and tag. The first player in the batting square has to run to tag 1st post player this player has to run to release the player at 2nd post etc until the player on the forth post is tagged and runs back to the batting square. Start again when ball and players are back in position again. Best of 5 runs.
One player as backstop, one on each of the first 3 posts and one as batter. The batter gets fed the ball until they hit it. When they do hit it the run to first post and everyone else runs onto the next post. They player who has run from 3rd to forth is now in bat.

A very easy to use website with helpful drills to help my players develop.
The days of scratching practice drills and plays on scraps of paper are now long gone. With Sportplan I can easily organise my practices. It allows me to plan practices more quickly and makes me a better, more organized coach.
As someone who is new to coaching this site was just what I needed, drills that I can study on the PC and then take with confidence to my training sessions.
Wow what a great website, I have found sportplan an important tool for me when planning my netball sessions with my netball team. There are alot of very helpful tips/ideas/skills that I can learn and teach to my team. Thank you sportplan I hope to continue to use your helpful tips and to learn more about improving my teams netball skills. Thanks again....keep it up....
I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.
What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
I can't get enough of the Sportplan, It has given me back the enthusiasm i was starting to lose. My girls are so keen and are ready at 14 to take the next up in their game. Sportplan will help no end.
