  • Head and eyes steady until completion of pass

  • Hands well apart on stick, near the top of the stick
  • Stick on ground, starts away from the ball and slaps through the ball on an arc in contact with the ground, making this a quicker more powerful and faster action than the push
  • Ball should be well away from the feet to the right, able to be moved from any position
  • Less experienced players commonly lead with the left shoulder moving forward in the direction of the slap and the ball midway between the feet
