Developing Good Hands 

30 Sec. Workout Drill: Rapid-Fire Right Hand Behind-the-Back Pass and Catch 
By Hal Wissel

For this drill, you will pass to a toss back from a distance of only 5 feet. A wall can be used if a toss back is not available. This drill is excellent for developing good hands and the ability to catch the ball. The drill also helps you develop quickness, accuracy, and confidence in passing and catching with one hand (strong or weak hand) using the behind-the-back pass. Start in a balanced stance, 5 feet in front of a toss back. Turn your body so your chest is at a right angle to the toss back. Start with the ball in your right hand; your other hand is down at your side (you will use only one hand throughout this entire drill). Using a behind-the-back pass with your right hand, pass the ball with as much force and accuracy as you can. Catch the return off the toss back with only your right hand. Count the number of behind-the-back passes made with your right hand in 30 seconds. A good score is 35 passes in 30 seconds.
