What is the proper way to make a bounce pass?

Making the Bounce Pass

To make the bounce pass, begin by having two players face each other. They should be three to five feet apart. The elbows should stay straight with the knees slightly bent so that the ball can be released closer to the floor. Flick with your wrists making sure that the ball bounces two thirds of the way to the receiver of the ball. Throw seven passes to each side. Start with the right foot as the pivot foot then switch to the left foot.

When passing the thumbs should go over and point to your teammate. Forward spin creates a faster pass.
