LEARNING OF RECEIVING, PASSING AND SHOOTING 1/10 (traditional concept)
CATCHING THE BALL:
A player catches the ball with both hands in a way that the thumbs are connected and other fingers create “basket” in which the ball gets in. At the time of receiving, the ball should be “pulled towards yourself” and thus compensate the contact. For the lower catch, small fingers are connected.
THE MOST COMMON MISTAKES:
At the time of catching, open hands and movements as playing cymbals
Catching without compensating the contact
- demonstration of elements by the coach or players who perform them correctly
- this methodology is based on constant pointing out the mistakes and ways to correct them.
- when holding the ball with both hands, control the angle of thumbs – 90 degrees.
- practice holding the less inflated ball of a proper size with one hand
- from the very beginning, when receiving and passing the ball ask for an active stand
- technical elements with the ball should be connected as soon as possible so that they have logical situational quality
PASSING THE BALL
Here are few techniques presented in the literature, we will mention some:
When player controls the ball, pulls almost stretched hand and does small circle, swings, rotates palm up slantwise. It is important to link receiving ball with the swing and throw-out, and all that link to the footwork as quickly as possible. The ball should not be pushed as a sphere, but player should “open the arm” where elbow precedes the wrist and fingers in the first phase. Shooting technique is in the essence the same as the passing technique.
When player controls the ball, he takes it out behind his head the shortest way, so that elbow is in position above the shoulder and the wrist is open. It is important to link receiving ball with the swing and throw-out, and all that link to the footwork as quickly as possible. The ball should not be pushed as a sphere, but…
When player receives the ball, he pulls it down with the circular movement, behind his body so elbow gets higher above shoulder, the wrist is open. It is important to link receiving ball with the swing and throw-out, and all that link to the footwork as quickly as possible. The ball should not be pushed as a sphere, but…
When player receives the ball, he pulls it to the side so that “3 levers” forearm- upper arm – body, form 90° angles. It is important to link receiving ball with the swing and throw-out, and all that link to the footwork as quickly as possible. The ball should not be pushed as a sphere, but…
Passing and shooting the ball by so-called “whip shot”.
- practice catching and passing the ball in pairs, so that the players are far enough not to push the ball to each other and close enough to be able to do the exercise.
- the ball should be passed at the right time, correct and linear so that it starts rotating in direction towards the player who is passing it
- coordinate passing the ball technique with foot work, especially in case of girl players, because most of them in the beginning pass the ball from the “wrong foot”
- the ball should be passed to the teammate at his chest height
- from the beginning practice shooting from the first, second and third step, while receiving the ball while moving.
- because catching and passing the ball are basic technical elements, it is critically important to perform this exercise precisely from the first training
The most common mistakes in passing and shooting the ball are: closed fist in the first phase: pulling out the ball – getting ready for passing; low elbow position: when throwing the ball the elbow height is below shoulder level – pushing the ball.
For precise and strong throw, it is important that the fist is open – in the final phase of throwing, the direction of the ball comes from the wrist and fingers (primarily three middle fingers). When done correctly, the ball rotates in the direction towards the player.
For good amplitude of the movement and thus good speed of the throw, it is important that elbow is positioned above the shoulder height. In such position, it is very likely the player will throw the ball, not push it. We will again emphasise the importance of positioning the elbow precedes the wrist in the first phase of throw.
The most common mistake kids do is pushing the ball and it should be corrected as it happens. The consequence of pushing the ball is an inability to precisely pass the ball at a distance and shoot with the appropriate strength.
