First training of the new decade

On Wednesday Zurich Netball Club were back to training for the first time in 2020. We had a fantastic turnout for the first session back. It would be great to think that everyone was super keen because they had playing netball over the festive period but some (myself included) were glad to be doing something active after indulging too much over Christmas!

After warming up we focused on ball skills in pairs to get us used to catching and throwing again. The drills were a combination of lobs and chest passes as well as mini-competitions to see which pair were the fastest without dropping the ball.

Then we split into two teams for match practice. We mixed it up a bit by selecting a bib at random so lots of us were playing positions that were new to us. This meant we had to use our brains and we learnt something about other positions on the court.

To finish we managed the dreaded cool down/core training which was difficult after such a long absence. Hopefully this part of training will get easier in the coming weeks.

It was so nice to see everyone after the winter break and some new faces to the club came to training as well. New members are always welcome to join. If you would like to come along and try netball for the first time or even get back into a sport that you used play, please get in touch with the committee at zurichnetball@gmail.com or send us a message on Facebook.
