Image of Lead Pass (FM)
  • B takes a few steps directly towards A; this movement is designed to mimic the movement required to move a defender
  • B then turns sharply to run at a 60 degree angle downfield; A aims to throw the pass so that it sits in B’s path, and away from the sideline

Pre-Requisite Drills:



  • Brummie says:

    Aim for the disc to sit in space rather than trying to hit the receiver perfectly in stride; this increases the error margin
