Passing-Diamond Passing/Pass Ahead Drill

While the skill of passing must be practiced, it is the decision-making of when and where to pass the ball, that makes the great passer.  Here are two drills that put young players in a situation where they must read the defender(s) and make the appropriate pass. 



Crab Dribble

To execute a crab dribble the ball-handler turns his/her back to the defender and dribbles the ball with their hand furthest from the defender looking up the floor over their lead shoulder.  The dribble is bounced near the back foot, usually with a "step-slide" footwork.
