From observing myself in a game situation these are what I consider
are my strengths and weaknesses for Netball and why I think each one
is a strength or weakness.



> Shooting

> Shoulder Pass

> Bounce Pass

> Chest Pass

> Pivoting

> Footwork

> High-running Pass

> Reaction Time

> Agility

> Speed


Strength 1: Shooting is one of my strengths as I think I perform it
correctly. By correctly I mean having a balanced position (standing
with my feet shoulder width apart and keeping my body straight),
holding the ball above my head (so that the ball is resting on the
tips of my fingers and my thumbs form a W shape), bending my knees as
if I’m about to jump (this is where the power for the shot comes
from), letting the energy flow from my feet to my hands, keeping my
back straight and my head up, focusing on the back of the ring rather
than the front (this is because if the shot is short and it hits the
back it should still fall in), letting the ball go at the same time as
I straighten my legs, moving my arms as little as possible, releasing
the ball with a spin by flicking my wrists and finally if the ball
doesn’t go in preparing myself for the rebound. By shooting like this
I am more accurate at shooting and therefore score more goals. From
observing myself, when I shoot I make it look effortless and I think
my shooting is consistent. I think I play better when I’m in an attack
position because when I play defence I find it really hard to gain
possession of the ball, intercept the passes and mark the ball.

Strength 2: Shoulder pass is one of my strengths and I think I perf...

ball has to turn around quickly to receive the ball once it has
rebounded off the wall and catch it. The more practice the person has
the quicker the person will react and to catch the ball.

Practice 3 is kind of similar to the previous one. One person faces
the wall and the other person stands behind them with the ball (about
a metre behind). The feeder throws the ball against the wall and the
receiver has to catch it quickly.

Weakness 5: Speed can be improved by doing shuttle runs. Shuttle runs
are where you run a short distance for a certain period of time. So
for netball a person will run from the back line of the court to the
end of the first third and back again for a number of times and then
will increase the amount of times they run per session to progress
their speed.
