BEHIND THE BACK PASS. Coach Cedric Carter teaches the fundamentals of the behind the back pass in this video. Learn skill for timing and accuracy of your behind the back. Work with a teammate or a wall to practice making. This pass is often used as a misdirection pass. If you are passing to your right you want to use your left hand to go behind your back to make the pass. The key when passing behind the back is to pass the ball a bit higher because the ball is coming from the opposite side of ...your body. If you are passing to the left you want to use your right hand to make the pass. For the behind the back bounce pass, use the same rules that apply to passing to your left and right. The key is to pass the ball down towards the ground and to make sure it bounces three quarters of the way to the person you are passing to. Add this effective pass to your offensive arsenal.
