Come to the ball

Make sure your receivers come to the ball! They should attack each reception with the same intensity that the defense does. This cannot be overemphasized. Have them come and meet the ball before they stop. Then catch with two hands, hop stop, and establish a pivot foot. This gives them much more latitude to attack the defense.

When a teammate passes you the ball it is not as easy for the defender to steal it if you step to the ball. I play basketball and when I stepped to the ball the defender had a hard time trying to steal the ball. It is a good piece of advise!
