Netball

Netball
I like netball because it includes commitment, perseverance and having lots of fun.I have played netball for 4 years now it is awesome.I persuade you to go have a go at netball you can really enjoy the game or even just watch one.__________________________________________
First you need to like sports and exercise and be reasonably fit outside and in to be able to enjoy it and keep playing it.You’ll need to know the positions of where to stand and you’ll need to know the rules.



Positions:
Goal Shooter
To score goals and to work in and around the circle with the GA.
Goal Attack
To feed and work with GS and to score goals.
Wing Attack
To feed the circle players giving them shooting opportunities.
Centre
To take the centre pass and to link the defence and the attack.
Wing Defence
To look for interceptions and prevent the A from feeding the circle.
Goal Defence
To win the ball and reduce the effectiveness of the GA.
Goal Keeper
To work with the GD and to prevent the GA/GS from scoring goals.



Rules:Stepping- Stepping is moving with the ball in your hands.Obstruction- Is when you are too close to another player when defending .Contact- Is when you poke your elbow in at another player or stepping on their toes.Offside- Where you are not meant to go on the court.When and where did netball first come from?
Netball started in 1891 in Springfield, Massachusettswhen a 30-year-old Canadian immigrant to the USA.James Naismith was ordered to invent an indoor game for high spirited young men at the School for Christian Workers.Moving from its early start as basket ball, the first game of netball played at Madame Ostenburg’s College, England in 1895. Through to inclusion in the Commonwealth Games in 1998 and the instigation of Fast Net in 2008 and Fast5 in 2013.It has been quite a journey.
