Fox, Aaron, Spittle, Michael, Otago, Leonie and Saunders, Natalie 2013, Activity profiles of the Australian female netball team players during international competition: implications for training practice, Journal of sports sciences, vol. 31, no. 14, pp. 1588-1595, doi: 10.1080/02640414.2013.792943.
In elite sport, to remain competitive at the international level, it is critical to understand the game demands on players to ensure sport specific training programmes are designed for optimal athlete preparation and conditioning. In netball, recent research examining the activity patterns of players at the elite level is lacking, with only one study undertaken on this level of competition in the past 30 years. Therefore, the aim of this study was to provide coaches with up to date knowledge of player activity patterns as a basis for the design of optimal sport specific training programmes. The Australian female netball team were analysed using video footage of three international test matches. Player activity was categorised into five movement and eight game-based activities; and further classified as work or rest. Results suggest that differences in the current game exist when compared to the previous analysis. Positional differences were also found with regard to player activity confirming the need for an individualised component of training based on player position.
