Netball: bounce pass


The bounce pass fits the bill when defenders are closing in and you need to act quickly.

Players mostly use this pass inside the goal circle to feed shooters.

Space is restricted in the goal circle and the bounce is often an effective way to weave the ball past the defenders' legs.

STEP ONE


A bounce pass can be one or two-handed. When you're ready to make yours, hold the ball at chest height.

Make sure your fingers are pointing towards the floor of the court.

Stand with one of your feet forward so you can bend your knees as you make the pass.

STEP TWO


You need to release the ball from waist height. Use the power from your arms and knees as you push the ball forward.

Aim the ball just over halfway between you and the receiver. You need to get it to sit up - this will help your team-mate catch the ball.

Extend your arms as you make the pass to keep the ball on the right path.
