This Sportplan Session looks at ways for your players to quickly get the ball to a team-mate higher up the court - using the powerful Overhead Pass to get the ball over and above the opposition!

Finding an unmarked player or having the vision to spot an open player's run is only half the battle though - you need to make sure your players are able to put enough power on the pass to make sure it reaches its intended target without being intercepted!

  • Strength is important but there's lots of little pointers that can make a big difference to this technique - from the bending back of your arms, the step into the pass or that final flick from your fingers!

To help your players to develop their powerful overhead passes we start with a technique review before then putting practice into play with a series of three fun and challenging games and drills - designed to get your players moving, timing their runs and working hard!
