Clearing pass

The ball carrier should:
  • approach the ball in a low, strong and stable position
  • sink at their hips, bend at their knees
  • place their right foot to the ball when passing with the right hand (left foot to the ball when passing with the left hand)
  • place their other foot a comfortable distance away for stability, pointing in the direction of the pass
  • keep their head over the ball, eyes focussed on the ball
  • in one quick movement, ‘sweep’ the ball from the floor to the receiver, taking care not to make two movements (lifting then passing)
  • when passing right, use their right hand for stability and their left hand for power and vice versa
  • follow through with both hands pointing in the direction of the receiver
