Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A Netball court is divided into three areas. What are these areas called?

    • A.

      Centre Third and two Goal Thirds.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Centre Third and two Goal Thirds.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Centre Third and two Goal Thirds. In a netball court, the Centre Third is the middle area of the court, while the Goal Thirds are the two areas on either end of the court where the goals are located. This division of the court into three areas allows for strategic positioning and movement of players during the game.

  • 2. 

    There are seven players on the court for each team at a time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because in basketball, there are typically five players from each team on the court at a time. These players are responsible for playing offense and defense, and they work together to score points and prevent the opposing team from scoring. Additionally, there are usually two additional players from each team on the bench, ready to substitute in if needed. Therefore, when both teams have their full roster on the court, there are indeed seven players on the court for each team at a time.

    Explanation
    The lines on the outside of the court are called side lines, while the lines on the inside of the court are called goal lines. Additionally, the lines that run across the court are called transverse lines.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    When defending the ball, the defender is allowed to stand how far away from the opposition player that has the ball?

    • A.

      No closer than 3 feet

    • B.

      No further than 3 feet

    • C.

      No closer than four feet

    • D.

      No closer than a foot

    Correct Answer
    A. No closer than 3 feet
    Explanation
    The defender is allowed to stand no closer than 3 feet away from the opposition player that has the ball. This distance ensures that there is enough space between the defender and the ball handler to prevent any physical contact or interference while still allowing the defender to effectively guard the player and make defensive moves. Standing closer than 3 feet may result in a foul or violation.

    • D.

      WD, GS, GK& GA

    Correct Answer
    B. Goal Defender, Goal Attack, Goal Keeper & Goal Shooter
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Goal Defender, Goal Attack, Goal Keeper & Goal Shooter. These are the four players that are allowed to enter the goal circle. The goal defender's role is to defend the goal and prevent the opposing team from scoring. The goal attack's role is to attack the goal and try to score points. The goal keeper's role is to guard the goal and prevent the opposing team from scoring. The goal shooter's role is to shoot the ball into the goal and score points.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The Goal Attack and Goal Shooter are the only two players on the court that are able to shoot goals.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given answer is that in netball, the Goal Attack and Goal Shooter positions are responsible for shooting goals. These two players are typically positioned in the attacking third of the court and their main objective is to score goals by shooting the ball into the opposing team's net. Other players on the court, such as the Center, Wing Attack, Wing Defense, Goal Defense, and Goal Keeper, have different roles and responsibilities but are not specifically designated to shoot goals. Therefore, the statement that the Goal Attack and Goal Shooter are the only two players on the court able to shoot goals is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    When passing the ball to your team mate you must

    • A.

      Be at least a metre away

    • B.

      Have enough space in between you both for another person to defend

    • C.

      Be looking at some else and then throw it to a different person

    • D.

      Be more than five metres away

    Correct Answer
    B. Have enough space in between you both for another person to defend
    Explanation
    To pass the ball effectively, it is important to have enough space between you and your teammate for another person to defend. This allows for better maneuverability and reduces the chances of the ball being intercepted by an opponent. Having enough space also gives your teammate more options and flexibility in receiving the pass, increasing the chances of a successful play.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    You are allowed to pass the ball from one goal circle to another. Covering the entire court

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement says that you are allowed to pass the ball from one goal circle to another while covering the entire court. However, this is not true. Passing the ball from one goal circle to another does not guarantee that the entire court will be covered. There are other areas of the court that may not be reached or covered by this action. Therefore, the correct answer is False.
