OVERHEAD PASS The overhead pass is often used as an outlet pass. Bring the ball directly above your forehead with both hands on the side of the ball and follow through. Aim for the teammate's chin. Some coaches advise not bring the ball behind your head, because it can get stolen and it takes a split-second longer to throw the pass. WRAP AROUND PASS
Pass The Ball Away From Defenders. Common sense dictates that passes should be made away from the opposing team’s defenders. This is especially true in case of aggressive defenders who play passing lanes to knock away passes. Your best bet: Pass to your teammate’s side away from the defenders to reduced tipped passes.
Reading your Opponent’s lead-foot will give you a good indication of where to make your cut towards the basket. You would cut left if their lead-foot is their right foot. Conversely, you would cut right if their lead-foot is their left foot. However, at all times remember to stay as unpredictable as possible.
Chest Pass Starting from the chest, hold the sides of the ball with both hands and keep your elbows tight next to your torso. To initiate the pass, step out with one foot towards your target and simultaneously press your arms out, your fingers will rotate so that your palms are facing outwards with your thumbs pointing to the floor.
Once a player from your team gets the ball, they should look to push it up the court. The players without the ball should respond by widening the court, creating passing lanes for the player with the ball to recognize. Advancement down the court should be rapid, looking for an outlet pass that can create an easy basket opportunity.
It is used to ensure accuracy as it increases the power. Chest pass is the main passing technique in which ball is passed to the chest of a player who receives it. Outward snap of the thumbs is involved so as to add the velocity of the ball leaving little time for the defense to react. Another technique in passing is the bounce pass, in which a player bounces the ball from his own chest to another player.
Here I have covered basic to advanced tactics, which athletes usually use during a basketball game. Also, I have discussed every each technique like positions of basketball, how to throw a basketball hoop or goal, basketball strategy, passing, rebounding, Dribbling, and Blocking.
