Abstract


This study measured the kinematics of netball shooting (standing & jump technique) performance throughout a six-week training intervention. Club-class female goal shooters were allocated into three groups - experimental (stand & jump shot training, n=6), training control (standing shot training, n=6) and pure control (no training, n=6). The experimental and training control players underwent a shooting intervention of three sessions (100 shots) per week for six-weeks. All players were tested using two dimensional motion analysis at the start (0 weeks), during (3 weeks), and end (6 weeks) of the intervention programme. The mixed technique program undertaken by the goal shooters in the experimental group was the most beneficial for enhancing overall shooting performance and, therefore, is the recommended strategy from this study for off-season training.
