Netball: high running pass


The high running pass is used when a player is trying to get the ball quickly into an attacking position.

The ball is caught while they are in mid-run then they release the ball by jumping into the air.

STEP ONE


Let your team-mate know you want the ball by calling to them.

Make sure you come towards the ball with both hands open ready to catch it. When you have caught the ball don't stop moving.

Remember which of your feet hit the ground first - this is your landing foot.

STEP TWO


Step forward with your other foot - try and make your stride as large as possible.

But keep your balance and hold the ball close to your body to protect it from defenders.

Hold your head up so you can see which of your team-mates is in the best position for you to pass to.

STEP THREE


You must release the ball before your landing foot hits the ground.

To release it from a jumping position you need to launch yourself from just one foot.

Bend your knee slightly to give you power and keep your body straight as you rise. Find your target and release the ball from above your head.

You can also finish the move off with a shoulder or bounce pass.
