How do you pass the ball and pivot away from the defense?

Make a Pass as You Pivot Away from the Defense

To make a pass as you pivot away from the defense, begin with two players facing each other. They should be three to five feet apart. Start with the left foot as the pivot foot. Pivot backward or forward with an 180 degree turn so that your back is facing the receiver of the ball. Stretch your arms to the side away from your pivot foot. This puts you in a position as far away as possible from the defense. Twist both your head and your arms around. Your palms should be facing the receiver of the ball. Pass the ball by flicking your wrists. Pass the ball six times in this position. Change pivot feet and use the same technique with the right foot.
