Are your passers inconsistent? Watch this!
Tracking the ball and staying behind it are necessary for good passing. McMaster University coach Dave Preston teaches his players to assess the ball’s trajectory before it crosses the opposing team’s attack line. This gives the defense more time to get in position to receive the ball.
- Tracking with the head still for a clear visual of the ball’s trajectory.
- Establishing lateral footwork for proper positioning on the court.
- Creating a platform that sends the ball to its intended target.
