Working in pairs, one player sets the ball to the their partner who moves to meet the ball using good footwork to bump the ball back to their partner who catches the ball.

Ensure the player bumping the ball lets the ball bounce on their wrists and only makes minor adjustments to give direction to the ball (back to the setter).

Coaching points

The setter shouldn't have to move to receive the return pass, only the player digging the ball should move to get themselves in a position where they can get under the ball.

Players must perform this skill 5 times before swapping roles.


Players can try to perform this skill continuously, without catching the ball.
