DRILL OBJECTIVE
The objective of this drill is to discourage
beginner players from moving around with
their hands together in passing position.
They also get plenty of practice of the
forearm passing technique.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Athletes begin the drill by throwing the ball up
in the air with two hands. When the ball
comes down they begin to pass the ball up
and down with the forearms.
Between each contact the athlete separates
the hands and slaps them behind their back
before bringing them back together in front of
the body to pass the ball again.
Once the beginner athlete has mastered this
they can then begin to pass the ball up in the
air:
low (3 feet above the arms)
medium (6-8 feet above the arms)
high (10-12 feet)
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Have the coach call out low, medium
and high.
TEACHING POINTS:
1 Athletes should learn that if they adopt the athletic
position they will pass more effectively.
2 Athletes should be reminded that they should
contact the ball out in from of them between the
wrist and elbow and that there should be a space
between them and the ball.
3 By bending the legs and keeping the arms relatively
parallel to the ground they will develop more
accuracy.
