Ninh explains the rules of netball the
00:03
object of game is for your team to score
00:04
more goals than the opposing team seven
00:07
players take to the course at any one
00:08
time and to score these goals you must
00:10
shoot the ball into the net the net is
00:13
roughly ten feet above the ground and is
00:15
on either side of a court that’s 100
00:17
feet long by 50 feet wide these are the
00:20
shooting circles which are a 16 foot
00:21
radius with a center circle three feet
00:23
in diameter the court is split up into
00:26
thirds and you’ll find out why shortly
00:28
hang on a minute this is just basketball
00:31
right nope not at all netball is a
00:35
completely different game with
00:37
completely different rules firstly not
00:40
everyone can shoot the ball only the
00:42
goal attack and goal shooter is allowed
00:44
to shoot the ball into the net and only
00:46
if they’re inside the goal circle
00:47
secondly all players can hold onto the
00:50
ball for a maximum of three seconds any
00:52
more than this and the other team is
00:54
awarded the ball thirdly to pass the
00:57
ball between teammates they must throw
00:59
it at least three feet to another player
01:01
fairly to do this results in a short
01:03
pass and the other team is awarded the
01:05
ball adversely the ball cannot be passed
01:08
along either ie it cannot cross two
01:10
transverse lines this also results in
01:13
the ball being awarded to the other team
01:14
in netball movement of a player with the
01:17
ball is heavily restricted once the
01:20
player has received the ball the foot
01:22
that the player lands on first is known
01:24
as the landing foot they cannot lift
01:26
this foot off the ground but may pivot
01:28
around it whilst moving with the other
01:30
leg should I play a lift a landing leg
01:32
and put it back down this is known as
01:34
footwork and the ball is awarded to the
01:36
other team the opponents will try and
01:39
take the ball away from you by
01:40
intercepting passes walking shots and
01:43
retrieving these balls however an
01:46
opposing player cannot touch another
01:47
player known as contact and must be at
01:50
least three feet away from a player with
01:52
possession of the ball if they are any
01:54
closer they are called from structure
01:56
and the ball is awarded TV of the team
01:58
the other major difference between
01:59
netball and basketball is that in
02:01
netball plays are assigned positions and
02:04
can only move within certain areas of
02:06
the course the goalkeeper can move
02:08
within the golfer that they are
02:09
defending
02:10
the goal defense can only move with the
02:12
goal and middle thirds the wing defense
02:14
can also move within their own goal and
02:16
middle thirds but not in their own
02:18
circle the center can move in all thirds
02:21
except the goal circles the wing attack
02:23
can move in the center and their
02:25
opponents goal third but not the circle
02:27
the goal sack can move within the center
02:29
and their opponent’s golfer and the goal
02:32
shooter can only move within the
02:33
opposite or third the idea of the game
02:36
is to pass the ball down the courts
02:37
without folding and remember only the
02:40
goal attack or goal shooter can score
02:41
and only within the shooting circle the
02:45
game is played in four 15-minute
02:46
quarters for a combined playing time of
02:48
60 minutes high score at the end of time
02:51
wins now if you’re a little lost don’t
02:54
worry about it as you will pick this up
02:56
easily but there’s just a few other
02:58
things you’ll need to know about before
02:59
playing or watching a game for example
03:02
throw-in if the ball leaves the sides of
03:05
the area of play the ball is awarded to
03:07
the C who did not touch it last free
03:10
pass a free pass is awarded when a
03:12
player breaks one of the rules we’ve
03:15
already mentioned some of them but
03:16
here’s the full list of them free pass
03:20
all shots for major infringement such as
03:23
contact or obstruction a free pass or
03:25
shot is awarded to the opposing player
03:27
the offending player must stand aside
03:29
and play no part while the opponent
03:30
releases the ball 50/50 if both players
03:34
are at fault or if the referee is not
03:36
sure who committed the fault this is
03:38
known as 50/50 and it results in a
03:41
toss-up between the two offending or
03:42
nearest players this is also awarded
03:45
when two opposing players catch the ball
03:47
simultaneously toss or if a 50/50 is
03:51
called the two offending or nearest
03:53
players stand three metres apart from
03:55
each other the referee will throw the
03:57
ball into the air between them and once
03:59
he has left their hands the ball is up
04:01
for grabs by either player offside if a
04:05
position player moves into an area that
04:07
they’re not supposed to be in this is
04:08
our side and the ball is awarded to the
04:10
other team complicated yes but as you
04:14

04:16
