One hand push pass

Written by Super User. Posted in Passing

The one hand push pass is used more frequently when trying to counter a closely guarding defender. Good balance and control is necessary. A cross over step in front of the defender and toward the receiver may help protect the ball. A pass may be made directly to the receiver or a one hand bounce pass might be more appropriate. In some cases the action may be similar to a baseball pass except the pass is made from about waist level rather than above the shoulder.
