- Your elbow should be bent, roughly at 90°. Use your other hand to support the ball if necessary.
- Place one foot in front of the other, shoulder-width apart.
- Remove your supporting hand and use your whole arm to propel the ball in a straight line towards your target.
- Use your fingers to direct the path of the ball, following through with your whole arm – all the way down to your fingertips.
- Transfer weight from your back to your front foot, bringing your trailing foot through as you propel the ball forwards.
- Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent, and weight evenly distributed.
- Position your hands on either side of the ball, slightly above your head. Spread your fingers wide and keep your thumbs pointing towards each other to create a stable platform for the pass.
- As you initiate the pass, extend your arms fully, using your wrists and fingers to generate power and control. Release the ball with a smooth and fluid motion, aiming for accuracy and precision.
- After releasing the ball, continue the motion by extending your arms fully towards the target. This helps with accuracy and ensures a complete follow-through.
