Each position has roles to play and areas of the court they are allowed in:
Technique - it’s a flat pass
-both hands behind the ball in ‘W’ shape
- elbows down and push ball directly and hard at team mate
-when passing step forward to generate more power
Technique - A bounce pass can be one or two-handed
- hold the ball at chest height and make sure your fingers are pointing towards the floor of the court.
- then you need to release the ball from waist height and bend your knees as you pass.
- aim the ball just over halfway between you and the receiver, and flick your wrists as you release the ball.
- extend your arms as you make the pass to keep the ball on the right path.
Technique - This movement is necessary when the player receiving the ball wishes to turn ready to pass.
- In order to pivot the player with the ball must turn in a rotating motion on their first grounded foot.
- This turning motion should be away from the defender. The ball should be held close to the body whilst it is positioned to throw.
- As the player pivots around, the head should follow the body so the eyes are looking at where the pass can be thrown.
Technique - Land with feet approximately shoulder width apart to give a firm support base.
- When landing with one foot first quickly bring the other foot down to evenly spread the body weight over two feet.
- Body should be upright when landing.
- Bend knees, hips and ankles slightly on impact. This will help cushion the force of the landing.
