June 25, 2010, Newsletter Issue #455: Passing the Ball and Making a Pivot

Tip of the Week

For the drill on passing the ball and making a pivot, begin by having two players face each other three to five yards apart. Start with the ball overhead. Keep your elbows straight and the wrists bent back as far as you can. Start out with the left foot as the pivot foot. The passer passes the ball with the flicking motion over his head. The receiver catches the ball using their left foot as their pivot foot. The receiver pivots around once with the ball overhead before passing. After each catch and pass, alternate your pivot foot. Alternate the type of pass that is thrown every three minutes. Move from the overhead pass, to the side pass and finally to the bounce pass.
