Netball Strategies and Tactics
Reading the Play
Good netball players have the ability to be able to read the play and immediately react to it and predict what will happen. This is like when a Goal Keeper is standing in front of her Goal Shooter as the opposing team brings the ball into their attacking third, and the defender is able to decide without looking at her player which way she will lead for the ball, and therefore how to move infront of her to get the ball.
Elite netball players are able to position themselves between their players and the ball or in the goal ring, between the shooter and the ring.
Whilst one defender is out of play out side the ring, the other defender is able to position themselves between the two shooters, in an optimal position in order to either intercept the pass or defend the shot straight away.
Good players are also able to position themselves so as not to crowd one area of the court, and have the awareness to move out of a crowded area and into space.
Timing is an essential part of netball and all good netball players have the ability to time their movements to near perfection.
In the goal ring the defenders and shooters have the ability to be able to time their jumps for the rebound so as they can have the biggest chance at getting the ball from a rebound.
The elite players also have the ability to time their pass of the ball so it is just in front of the player that they are passing too in order for the player to run onto the ball, and not have to stop and turn to get the pass.

In a game of netball, communication is a key area, and elite players have the ability to communicate with their team mates on and off the court in the most effective ways.
The defenders are able to communicate with each other in the ring so as they know when to switch shooters to defend, giving their team the best possible chances, as well as being able to communicate with each other about who to go up for the rebound, and where each other are in the ring.
Tactical knowledge of netball allows for players to know their opponents strengths and weaknesses and to be able to play on them. (i.e. Goal Defence stopping their Goal Attack from shooting close to the ring which is a strength and forcing them to shoot from far out, which is one of their weaknesses.)
Good players are able to pick up on these strengths and weaknesses imediately, and play on them, whist they are also sticking to the set game plays set out by their coach.
Having tactical knowledge also requires players being able to follow and stick to set plays as much as possible through out the game.
In elite netball skill selection is a major reason for the players being successful, this is due to the players have the decision making skill skills to know when to use what type of pass, who to pass to and where they need to be on the court.
Skill selection doesn't just include choosing which pass to use, (i.e. a chest pass when close to the person, over a shoulder pass when you are a little further away.) Skill selection also includes being able to decide and know if you need to move off defending your own player, to defending another player.
Elite netballers have the ability to do this instantaniously and not have to think about it, or hesitate before or after doing it.
