How you train is how you will play 

Quality training produces quality netball. The amount of work you put in at training is reflected on your court performances.
 
HOW you train is HOW you play.
 
If your team's passing practice is minimal and half-hearted then this is how you will pass on match day - poor passing means increased intercepts.
 
Netball is about possession and all players must be very good at passing and catching to keep possession.
 
If your goal shooters don't practice regularly, and by that I mean at least three times per week, goals won't go in and that lets the rest of the team down.
 
During training games if players dawdle into their court positions they will dawdle during competition.
 
Set your expectations high - you're not there to make up the numbers - each and every player is an integral part of the team. 
 
Learn to adapt - You should be able to play anywhere on the court with the exception of possibly goal shooting.  In all honesty some players will struggle to shoot accurately, as there is a lot of technique in shooting.
 
If you move away from the basics your skill level and expertise will, without doubt, be compromised. This will result in losses or finding what should be the easier matches now hard to win.
 
Without form (where all your training comes together) you cannot win and without quality training you cannot develop form as a player or as a team.
 
If nothing else, become passing experts. Watch your skill level and reflexes improve tenfold and your team rise to new heights...
 
The human body has exceptional "muscle memory" so what you do is what will play out on court.
