Long Ball

ab98897d60eaa0d05c1862c118538407_GenericThe definition of a long ball is a one or two handed shoulder pass over a long distance.

It is important for players to determine if the length of the pass should be either a chest pass or a shoulder pass. To get players reacting automatically to distance and the appropriate pass, players need constant practice. The skill of a pass reaction can be crucial in a pressure match as passes should still be hard and strong in those last few minutes of a close match.
