Perfect the hand pass
Around the Academy:

The hand pass is a key skill in Gaelic football

Introduction

The hand pass is the easiest and most accurate way of transferring possession of the ball from yourself to a team-mate.

It is the most commonly used pass in the game for short passing as it isn't possible to gain enough power for long range passes.

If you can master the hand pass then you are a long way down the road to getting the basics of Gaelic football right.

With so much of the game being about handling and passing with the hands a lot of players decide to wear gloves for extra grip which could also help with this skill.
