Fastnet (netball)

Fastnet is a variation of netball featuring shortened games and goals worth multiple points.

Playing rules

Fastnet features modified rules that are outlined below. Outside of these, the standard rules of netball apply (see Netball rules).

  • Timing: Each quarter lasts only six minutes, compared with 15 minutes in normal international netball competition. Breaks in between quarters are two minutes each. Injury time-outs are 30 seconds only; standard rules allow for one initial two-minute injury time-out.
  • Coaching: Coaches can give instructions to players from the sidelines during play, from in front of their playing bench. Standard international rules do not allow coaching during play.
  • Substitutions: Teams will be allowed to use rolling substitutions, with no stoppages in play per substitution and with unlimited substitutions per quarter. Standard international rules only allow substitutions either between quarters or when a player is injured.
  • Power plays: Each team can separately nominate one "power play" quarter, in which each goal scored by that team counts for double points. Although it is not a feature of standard netball.
  • Two-point shots The goal shooter (GS) and goal attack (GA) may shoot goals from outside the shooting circle. These goals count for two points; in a power-play quarter, they would count for four points. Umpires raise one arm for a single-point goal and two arms for a two-point goal. In standard netball rules, goals can only be shot from within the shooting circle and count for one point only.
  • Centre passes: After each goal, the team that conceded the goal takes the next centre pass; teams alternate taking the first centre pass of each quarter. Under normal rules, a coin toss determines the first centre pass of the match, after which centre passes alternate between the two teams.
  • Tied scores: Tied games are decided by penalty shoot-outs, similar to those in Often in competitive netball, tied games simply continue until one team wins in extra time, or else subsequently achieves a two-goal advantage
