PASSING OFF THE DRIBBLE. Coach Cedric Carter teaches the correct way to pass off the dribble. Passing off the dribble demonstrates a strong skill in ball control and accuracy. When making passes off the dribble you want to ensure that you are not touching the ball with two hands, But rather use only one hand. As you pass the ball off the dribble you want to make sure you step toward your target while putting power behind the pass so you can get the pass over to your teammate accurately and effectively. If you are passing off the dribble using ...a bounce pass you still are going to be stepping toward your target and you want to make sure you are pushing the ball three-quarters of the way to your teammate. Doing this ensures that you have power on your pass and also allows the basketball to get to your teammate using the most effective bounce as possible.
