These important clinics were attended by coaching staff from the participating teams, and now, for the first time, netball coaches everywhere will be able to purchase the recordings of these clinics for a small fee and gain insight from the very best coaches in the world.
Each clinic is seventy minutes long and covers a wide range of on-court scenarios:
Training and shooting under pressure; This session includes innovative ideas for maintaining high intensity at training. Training should simulate the intensity and pressures of match day. In this session we will look at ways to ensure this happens so athletes can deal with the match day pressures when they come. Delivered by Maureen Hall and Sue Hawkins.
Delivering player-centered sessions; This session explains how to make training more ‘athlete centered’ – how to get athletes to interact and get involved. The Coach can often be the only voice heard at training sessions. The session explores different ways to make training sessions more athlete centered, whereby athletes are more involved and participate more within the session. Delivered by Julie Hoornweg and Julia Lawrence/Liz Broomhead.
Creating relevance to ‘on-court’ situations; This session includes how to transfer skills and drills onto the court and addresses the relevance of what is done during training. Everything that is done during training must have relevance to an on-court situation. Players should understand the correlation between activities performed at training and where they fit into an on-court situation. The more athletes understand why they are being asked to do something at training, the better equipped they will be to put their training to good-use on match day. Delivered by Yvonne Willering and Julia Lawrence.
Where have all the Wing Attacks gone?; The aim of this session is to make Wing Attacks out of Goal Attacks and to identify the differences and address the needs of Wing Attacks. More and more athletes are being asked to make the transition from Goal Attack to Wing Attack. Many assume that it is an easy change to make. Not so! We look at the differences and why it’s so hard to make this transition and then explore ways to address the associated issues. Delivered by Jill McIntosh and Dr Anita Navin.
Access to the recordings of the clinics can be purchased for $6.99 each via the ‘Coaching Clinics – Netball World Cup 2015‘ page on the INF Website.
