Hugh has you on track. When I net, I try not to chase the trout with the net. I get the net underwater and then lead the trout over the net like Hugh suggested with that turning motion of the body. When the trout is over the net. I simultaneously bring the net up and slightly lower the rod tip. I try to pay attention to where the line/ leader connection is in relation to the rod tip. A quick burst from the trout and that connection can cause just enough drag in the tip top to cost a good fish. Don't know if I would practice netting out in the yard. The neighbors might think you've gone nuts. Maybe indoors.
