If a player shoots and it doesn't hit the backboard or rim, and they catch it before it hits the floor, it's a travel. The ball either has to:

a) Hit the rim or backboard.

b) Hit the ground

before the player can retain possession again.

Why is it important to follow through when you shoot in netball?

It is Important to follow through in netball because even the best shooter in the world still occasionally misses and if you miss you need to be there ready to get the rebound. If you manage to get the rebound you have an extra chance to score a goal. However if you didn't follow the ball after you shot, and you missed and the other team got the ball then they could score an extra point instead of you. If you manage to get the rebound every time you miss a goal and score from the rebound you will end up with a high score. Hope you find this helpful
