'Over a third' is an infringement which occurs when the ball passes completely over a whole third of the court without being touched by another player.
Eg. If a Goal Keeper takes a 'throw in' from the baseline, the ball must be touched by a player in the goal third before it reaches the centre third. This is NOT the case, however, if the throw in is taken from the sideline.
It is this rule that prevents a Goal Keeper throwing directly to a Goal Shooter.

Over a third is when the ball is thrown over a whole third without being touched by a player.
The attacking third of a netball game is the end that your team is shooting.
No, a player can't throw across an entire third. They can only throw to the next third. :)

'Over a Third' is what is called.in netball, when the ball is thrown over a third and untouched by a player, the umpire should blow his or hers whistle and say 'over a third free pass......(the teams club name e.g manly or south side).' if the umpire doesn't and is meant to the game is just a 'play on'.
A netball court is split into 3 parts, each one of these is called a third, the 3 thirds are the defending third, centre third and the shooting third.

The netball court is spilt up into 3rds. The centre third, the defensive third and the attacking third. Hope this helped :)
