bounce pass | basic passing

bounce pass

Low pass used over a short distance to feed the circle. Release is low, push towards receiver, fingers pointing to the ground. This pass should note raise above the ground. The bounce pass fits the bill when defenders are closing in and you need to act quickly. The bounce pass is a must when passing inside the goal circle to feed shooters. Space is restricted in the goal circle and the bounce is often an effective way to weave the ball past the defenders' legs.

A good solid bounce pass is completed with two hands holding the ball at chest height. Remember to that all your fingers and thumbs are all pointing towards the floor. You should be stepping into every bounce pass with one of your feet forward and always bend your knews while making the bounce pass. The aim for a bounce pass should be just over halfway between you and the receiver of the bounce pass.
