- Lifting the ball up and over the opposition on the move, off of the right foot
- This is an advanced skill, and should only be practised once players are comfortable with the standard aerial
- Difficulty lies in the ball moving away from you. Real emphasis should be made on getting under the ball before attempting to move it further up the pitch
- Performing the aerial pass in pairs
- Stand around half a stick length away from the ball
- Step into the movement with left foot in line with the ball
- Keep head still and over the ball
- The head of the stick should come underneath the ball, using a pushing motion at a 45 degree angle
- Hand position should be similar to an upright push pass
Players can use this technique when passing or shooting at goal.
Hold the stick with your palms facing upwards and turn the stick so that the flat side of the hook is facing the sky.
The back swing should be short and remain close to the ground.
Place your weight onto your right foot, with the ball slightly in front.
For a pass/ sweep shot ensure you get low and hit the middle of the ball. For a controlled lifted shot players should hit into the back of the ball.
