Players are paired up and face one another about 8 feet apart. They then pass back and forth, making sure that they step toward their partner to pass and step to the ball to receive. Coach calls the type of pass to be thrown. Gradually, partners move further apart as they are comfortable and accurate.
After a few minutes, progress to the next step.
Using the same setup as above, players shuffle from baseline to baseline, passing the ball back and forth. Speed of their movement and distance of the pass is determined by each player's ability. This is not a race and the objective is for players to learn to pass on the move. The coach can determine which type of pass is used.
Points of Emphasis
- Step to pass.
- Follow through so the backs of your hands are together with the thumbs pointing down.
- Step to catch.
- Catch with your hands extended and guide the ball into your body to secure it into triple threat position.
