What Position Are You?
Is Goal Keeper your netball position? The GK is the last line of defence, usually matches up against the oppositions best (and tallest) shooter. They need to be able to apply pressure in a small space and communicate with their GD and WD. Basic skills include intercepting passes into the circle, pressuring the GS when they are shooting by marking their shot and jumping for rebounds after missed shots.
The WD is the main defender in the mid-court. They help the two circle defenders by applying pressure to the other team’s attack, as well as being the main link from the defensive third into attack when the ball is turned over. Basic skills include being good at reading the game in order to intercept passes, defending the WA in mid-court and the circle edge. Does WD sound like it could be your netball position?
The C is the engine of the team and links the play between both ends of the court. They need great stamina and skill in both attack and defence, as well as good awareness of the limited space on court. Basic skills include being agile to always get free for a pass, good ball handling skills to be able to catch the ball on the run and pass onto team mates, and quick reactions to be able to keep up with play as the ball moves from defence to attack. A great netball position for a confident member of the team!
The GA is the main play-maker on court with both the ability to shoot and bring the ball out of the mid-court. They need to be athletic enough to be able to evade a GD and drive into the shooting circle. Basic skills include shooting, driving to receive centre passes and jumping for rebounds after missed shots. Get practicing your shooting and choose GS as your next netball position!
