Skill Type: Passing

The videos below demonstrate the five different passes to introduce to your players. Chest, Two-Hand Overhead, Lob, Shoulder and Bounce. Pass variation during a game is important to every player.

Every situation on court requires a particular pass. Introduction of all five passes at a young age will give players confidence in the decision making process. For example, if a player has the confidence to perform a shoulder pass, they will look down court as their first option instead of playing a safe, short, chest pass.

Footwork and passing go together. Both require attention during your weekly training sessions.
