Bounce Pass Drill

1. Put a target on the wall anywhere between the height of your thigh and your navel.
2. Take a few steps back and begin bounce passing at the target focusing on the spot on the floor you should aim at.
3. Rotate between which foot to use when stepping forward. This is done to become comfortable with both sides in a game situation.
4. This drill should start out slow and focus on proper form. Over time, you should speed up the drill to make it more game-like.

This drill is the first to several drills one can do to improve the skill of the bounce pass. Start here, and then progressively add more to the drill to make it more realistic of game situations. Things like moving up and down the court with a partner, adding cones as defenders, and then put actual defenders into the drill.
