Netball: chest pass


The chest pass is the most accurate way of getting the ball around the court.

As well as getting the ball into the attacking zone, the pass is often used at throw-ins.

STEP ONE


Your hands should form a W behind the ball.

Bring your thumbs together in the centre with your fingers comfortably spread out.

STEP TWO


When making a pass, step forward with one foot.

This will help you get energy from the floor as you push through with the ball.

STEP THREE


Keep your elbows close to your body and push through with the ball.

As you release the ball, straighten your arms and fingers. Keep your wrists pointed upwards to help fully extend your arms.

Keep your eye on the receiver. If you're catching the ball, move towards not away from it.
