Developing Good Hands
30 Sec. Workout Drill: Passing on the Move
By Hal Wissel
Passing to a toss back and moving from side to side will help you develop quickness, accuracy, and confidence in passing and catching. Place a toss back in the middle of the lane. Start 12 feet away from it with your outside foot touching the lane line to your left. Hold the ball in chest pass position with two hands in front of your chest and your elbows in. Quickly pass the ball releasing it off the first and second fingers of each hand. Follow through by pointing your fingers at the target. Move laterally, taking short, quick side steps and not crossing your feet.
Pass and catch the ball as quickly and accurately as you can while moving laterally, taking short, quick side steps and not crossing your feet. Catch the return off the toss back with both hands in chest passing position. Move laterally until your outside foot touches the lane line to your right. Change direction and move back to the lane line to your left, passing and catching on the move. Keep moving laterally as you pass and catch, changing direction each time you touch a line. If a toss back is not available, use a wall. Use tape to mark lines 12 feet apart to serve as lane lines. A good score is 22 passes in 30 seconds. This is a good conditioning drill. At the completion of the drill shoot two free throws.
