Passing the ball

The ball carrier should:
  • hold the ball in two hands
  • commit a defender
  • prop on their inside leg
  • turn side on to the defence to face the supporting receiver
  • identify the ‘target’ area - chest height in front of the receiver
  • keeping the ball up between waist and chest area move the ball quickly across their body by swinging their arms
  • use their chest, shoulders, elbows and wrists to control the speed and flight of the ball as it is released
  • follow through with their hands in the direction of the pass with fingers pointing to the target after release
  • support the receiver once the pass has been completed
