Improve your reach

Getting ‘hands over’ in netball is a very common defensive technique. It can be helpful to improve your reach.

Have you wondered how you make this more effective? The better your reach, the more you will block/ disturb/ tip/ intercept.

Let’s look at what this entails:

  • Balance on your toes
  • Tall and upright body
  • Arms overhead, often as high as possible.

Common issues we see are in these areas are:

  • Stiffness in the upper back will limit your shoulder range.
  • Tightness of the lats and pecs (latissimus and pectoral muscles) will reduce your overhead reach

So, try these below exercises to see if you can make a difference.
