Netball is a ball sport played by two teams of seven players. Games are played on a rectangular court with raised goal rings at each end. Each team attempts to score goals by passing a ball down the court and shooting it through its goal ring. Players are assigned specific positions, which define their roles within the team and restrict their movement to certain areas of the court. During general play, a player with the ball can hold onto it for only three seconds before shooting for a goal or passing to another player. The winning team is the one that scores the most goals. Netball games are 60 minutes long. From the start, it was considered socially appropriate for women to play netball. A game is played in four quarters, each lasting fifteen minutes. There are intervals of three minutes between the first and second quarters and between the third and fourth quarters, and an interval of five minutes at half time. If an umpire or player calls time, the time keeper pauses the timer. When play resumes, the timer is restarted. A maximum of two minutes is allowed for an injury.
The history of netball can be traced to the early development of basketball. By 1960, the rules of netball were standardized internationally. The second half of the 20th century saw international competition expand, with the sport's premier international competition, the World Netball Championships, starting in 1963. Netball has also been contested at the Commonwealth Games since 1998. Today, netball is popular in Commonwealth nations, and is reportedly played by over 20 million people worldwide.
RULES OF THE GAME * A player with or without the ball cannot move into an area of the court that is not designated for their position. * Hopping or dragging the landing foot is not allowed. * No player may contact an opponent, either accidentally or deliberately, in such a way that interferes with the play of that opponent or causes contact to occur. * The penalized player may not move or attempt to take part in play either physically or verbally until the ball has left the hands of the thrower.” * You have 3 seconds from setting the free pass/penalty in which to take it. If you decide that another player would be better taking it, you must place the ball back on the floor. * Do not walk towards the other player to pass it to them (footwork) or hand it to them (short pass). * Any opposing player allowed in that area may take the free pass/penalty. * No abusive language or shouting at the field. * You must also wait until all players are back on the court before taking the throw in. * Failure to remove jewellery will result in a player not being allowed on court. TYPES OF TOURNAMENT ENGAGED WITH NETBALL * Local Inter-School Netball tournament * Asian Youth Netball Championship * Inter District Championship ATTIRE OF NETBALL PLAYERS…...

Skill Learning Theories

...of the athletes (Cassidy, Jones, & Potrac, 2009). “There is little negotiation between coach and athlete” as the coach controls the flow of information (Dick, 2007, p. 158). This method is predominantly used when coaching beginners. The theory of operant conditioning informs the method of direct, as the positive and negative consequences for the player are a result of the instructions and directions given by the coach. Since the coach “controls the flow of information,” there are immediate implications for the athlete, thus altering their behaviour to achieve the target result (Cassidy, Jones, & Potrac, 2009). The target result is specific to the drill. An example of this is when Georgie, the coach, stood at the defensive third of the netball court and informed the players on what must be done for better flow of the ball. The goal in mind was to successfully move the ball to the attacking third (target result). She gave specific instructions and directions to all players and when one failed to comply, Georgie ‘singled’ the player out in front of the team and replaced them with another player. This demonstrates negative punishment because the player was removed from the court. Scheduling is an important component of operant conditioning. It can be achieved through controlling the flow of information directly from the coach to the player with an “instructional objective” in mind (Case & Bereiter, 1984). As the “passing down the court” drill progressed, Georgie supplied more......

Muga 2/15 Kent County Council Sports Development Unit and Property Group Multi Use Games Area Design Brief GENERAL PRINCIPLES AND CONSIDERATIONS 1. This Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) design brief has been developed to specify the provision required and the issues associated with the technicalities of meeting sport specific requirements. It should not be read alone, guidance should also be taken from Sport England, Sport Scotland and every individual Governing Body of Sport that the facility is likely to accommodate. 2. In terms of MUGAs this document only refers to hard macadam based courts and not artificial turf pitches, which can also be deemed as a MUGA. The facility will almost exclusively be used for tennis, netball, basketball and small-sided football but can be used as a resource for adapted training in a variety of sports and exercises. 3. This brief gives recommendations for a standard school and club level facility. The specification should adhere to that defined within Sport England’s Design Specification and Construction of Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs) guidance note. 4. A four court MUGA will generally be sufficient for schools with a school roll of between 400 and 1100 pupils, this is offset against the provision of existing facilities for PE and Sport on or accessible to the school. This therefore could be considered standard for most secondary schools in the County. 5. The number of courts can vary, with any number of courts......

Chronic Adaptations- Netball Fitness Program

...Introduction Netball demands a lot from the body, both physically and mentally, so it is therefore important to prepare your body and mind. If you do this you will enable yourself to perform the skills and tasks demanded on the Netball court. Netball demands short duration but high intensity efforts, involving running, constant change of direction, jumping, passing, dodging, rebounding and many other skills. Physical fitness is a starting block which is necessary to develop and extend your abilities and use them effectively during game play. Before you start Remember – you need to have a programme designed for your needs and everyone is different. So before you start, ask yourself the following: • What are the fitness components I know I need to work on? I.e. Strength? Agility? • What movements do I make on the Netball court and what are the major muscles involved? • How does my position affect the different muscle groups I need to work on? • Do I have any injuries and how do I look after them during the pre-season? • What has held me back in the past when it comes to my fitness? How can I make sure this doesn’t happen this year? • What equipment do I have available to me? Do I belong to a gym? Do I need to find other places to exercise? • What other commitments do I have and how am I going to create a week on week fitness routine that works for me? • How can I have a well balanced programme that gives me enough recovery? The different areas of......

Components of Fitness

...flexibility, speed, body composition, aerobic endurance and the components of skill-related fitness; agility, balance, co-ordination, power and reaction time. I will relate the components of fitness to my chosen sport-netball. 6 components of physical fitness Aerobic endurance Aerobic endurance is having the ability to exercise for a long period without getting tired. During aerobic work the body is dependent on oxygen; also athletes who are good at aerobic endurance will have slow twitch fibres. This component is suited for an ectomorph because of their small body surface area, light frame and good thermo regulation, which is suitable for endurance based sports such as a triathlon. Aerobic endurance relates to netball because you have to continually run up and down the court for the duration of the netball game. Muscular endurance Muscular endurance is having the ability to keep contracting your muscles without getting tired. During an activity that uses muscular endurance they will use slow twitch fibres because of the endurance of the activity. This component is suited for an endomorph because of their large lung capacity they are able to do sports like rowing, which needs muscular endurance. They are also able to increase their muscle mass easily. In netball you need to have good muscular endurance because you use your leg muscles – triceps and hamstrings- constantly as you run throughout the game. You also use your biceps when you pass the ball to your team......

Ethics and Issues in Sport Interview

...schools in the surrounding area, but still many of the boys played for club teams and that is what they considered their main competition. Not too much has changed since my mum's days at school to when I was in high school 5 years ago, there are more teams now in school for girls and boys, but they are not considered the greatest competition level. Part 2 I spoke to one girl from England and one girl who I know from my junior college in Iowa. The girl from England said she played netball(similar to basketball) for her school team and that she got interested in the sport after playing it in P.E. She said that it got quite serious between the girls and they would play different schools around the area. There was not much encouragement by the coaching staff she said and the team hardly practiced enough to become as serious as it could have been. The facilities were good as they used the schools basketball court but had there own specific netball nets. After finishing high school netball also finished for her as it was not offered at her local college. Which is also typical in england as college is only really dedicated for the education side of things. Now the American girl i interviewed was a totally different interview. She played Softball and had played the sport since the age of 6. Her high school team was very much considered as a high level of competition and something taken very seriously. Her high school team was very successful and she ended up getting a......

Personality and Motivation Effect on Sports Performance

...with this theory is that it does not account of external triggers or causes, for example stress. Interactionist Approach – Martens Schematic View This is a combination of the trait theory and social learning theory, meaning characteristics are made from both genetics and learning through the environment around you. It is a more situation specific approach to personality development and sports performance. “It suggests that our behaviour is based on inherited traits, which we then adapt to suit the situation we are in.” – Hollander 1967. Marten’s Schematic theory is a structure that looks at the way internal, external, dynamic and consistent factors influence role related behaviour for example, being a good team captain in netball. Typical responses are like always wanting to win or being aggressive; and your psychological core; for example, your attitudes, beliefs and motives. 1. Psychological Core (You, this is your true self and an internal part of the personality) 2. Typical Response (Natural Response, A response to an environment and are changeable behaviours) 3. Role Related Behaviour (Depending on Situation, is a direct consequence of the environment) There are 3 levels to form personality. The advantages of interactionism are that it takes into account of both the genetic and situational approach, it contains no flaws and it takes into account that people are different and this influences them differently.

...For Completion of Requirements of MPE142F – Netball Submitted By: Julia Dominique C. Alvarez Submitted To: Coach Sonny Montalvo Date: October 12, 2015 Detailed History of Netball The history of netball can be traced to the early development of basketball. When it was invented in 1891 by James Naismith. His game was first played in the campus gymnasium on a court roughly half the size of a regulated court today, between two teams of nine players. It was played with a soccer ball that was shot into closed-bottom peach baskets that were nailed to the gymnasium wall. In 1892 Senda Berenson, also a physical education instructor, adapted Naismith's game for her female students. The sport was modified for women to accommodate social conventions regarding their participation in sport, giving rise to women's basketball. Variations of women's basketball arose across the United States and in England. At a physical training college in England, the rules of women's basketball were modified over several years to form an entirely new sport namely netball. She divided the playing court into thirds, each containing three players per team that could not leave their assigned zone. Players could not hold the ball for more than three seconds, dribble it more than three times, or snatch the ball from another player. The first codified rules of netball were published at the start of the twentieth century, and from there, the new sport spread throughout the British Empire. By 1895,......
