Basketball
Description

Step around pass is used when you are closely guarded and you need to step around the defender in the direction you want to pass the ball.

As you step around you will need to protect the ball by getting the ball to the side of your body away from the defender and making the pass from your hip.

Coaching Points

Repeat in both directions (don't always step and pass the same way).

The pass should finish with your hand and fingers pointing to where you want the ball to go.
