Today I am going to be writing about Netball!
In netball there are players. There can only be 7 players from each team at all times. There can only be 7 players on each team at all times because there is only 7 positions. Those positions are Center C, Goal Shoot GS, Goalkeeper GK, Wing Attack WA, Wing Defence WD, Goal Attack GA and Goal Defence GD. All of these positions are important in their own way.
You can stop your partner from getting the ball by defending. That’s when Goal Defence, Wing Defence and Goalkeeper come in. There job is to defend their partner from getting the ball. Center, Wing Attack, Goal Attack and Goal Shooter either have to try and get the ball, or get the ball in the hoop. Goal Attack and Goal Shooter are allowed to shoot.
To get the game started when the umpire blows the whistle the person who is playing Center has to jump into the circle and pass the ball to anybody that’s in that’s persons team. The other positions can not step over the line if the whistle has not been blown.
In the game of Netball there are specific places that positions are not allowed to go. There are 3 parts that make up a netball court. Example: Center is allowed to go everywhere except for the semi-circles. There are also rules like you have to be 3-feet away from your opponent and you are not allowed to run with the ball.
The objective of the game is to try and get the ball to the other side of the court so that your Goals Shoot can shoot the ball into the hoop. The team with the most points win. To play netball you need to be able to move fast so that you don’t get blocked from your partner.
In netball there are things that you need like a netball ball, a court, a hoop, a uniform, a team/players and an umpire. Also to play the game netball you need to be able to know the rules. The rules are pretty simple you can only hold the ball for 3 seconds, you can’t travel with the ball and you have to stay 3 feet away from your opponent.
I wrote about Netball because I love to play netball. I hope that people want to see that.
