If you understand the steps to take to prevent a netball accident, then you’ll save some heartache down the line for anyone who might potentially have such an accident. You may think that people who play netball don’t run much risk of hurting themselves, but actually, playing netball at any high level turns this schoolgirl favourite into a fast-paced, highly competitive team game, that can at times be as aggressive and unruly as any traditionally male sport.
Steps to take to prevent a netball accident
The steps to take to prevent a netball accident are simple:
- Make sure the court is swept clear of debris
- Ensure the court is not slippery, particularly in the wet
- Check the players have removed jewellery
- Ensure the players are wearing the correct clothing, particularly in relation to footwear
- Ensure the players know the rules
- Give any player who is becoming careless or dangerous, a ‘time-out’
- Make sure long hair is safely tied back
- Ensure players are aware of the rules of the game, and punish any infringements
