DRILL OBJECTIVE
This objective of this drill is to loosen up the
body and raise body temperature in
preparation for more strenuous activity.
It will also increase the athlete’s awareness
of how current environmental conditions
affect the ball.
Additionally this drill works on passing with
particular focus on a pass that travels behind
the body.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Athlete 1 either passes or sets the ball to
athlete 2 who forearm passes the ball behind
themselves to athletes 3.
Athletes 3 then either sets or passes the ball
over the head of athlete 2 for the drill to
continue.
As athlete 2 plays they ball they should
practice moving forward through the ball
giving the ball spin.
It is important that athlete 2 focuses on
making sure that their arms are parallel with
the target behind them – this way they only
have to pass their arms ‘through the ball’ and
their pass is likely to be more accurate.
After 5-10 good passes behind them (or a set
of 5-6 continuous) athlete 2 should switch
positions within the drill.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Athlete 1 can intentionally pass the
ball to either side of athlete 2 making
an accurate pass behind more
difficult.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Athlete 2 needs to keep in mind that they are
passing the ball with backspin. (refer drill 3.11 for
additional details)
2 Athlete 2 needs to be in the athletic position so
that they can move quickly to pass a ball that is
not ideal.
3 The arms of athlete 2 need to be parallel with the
target on contact with the ball and move ‘sand to
sky’.
