2.2 How to Coach Netball

A different form of 1-on-1 defence. Players are still responsible for a direct opponent, but rather than standing next to them, instead restrict space available for a straight lead by standing 1-2 metres in front of them.

3.2 Netball Training Exercise

Sagging Defence

Instead of pressuring the passer, a strategy is to drop back and fill a hole in front of the next likely receiver. This forces the attacking team to use second/third wider options. This can be used at a centre pass, free pass, or throw-in. Good teams can also use a rolling sag, which involves dropping back in general play as soon as its clear an intercept isn't possible.
