For Our Athletes

Week Three of THE BSC SKILLS WORLD CUP!

Receiving

  • This is also called trapping or first touch.
  • Receiving the ball is an extremely important set of skills to develop. These are the skills associated with controlling the ball when you are receiving a pass from your teammate or intercepting a pass made by an opponent.
  • Players use different parts of their bodies to receive the ball
    • Feet
    • Thigh
    • Chest
    • Head
  • Controlling the ball can mean a couple of things
    • Keeping the ball close to you when you take your first touch
    • Preparing for what you are going to do after you receive the ball – dribble, make a pass, take a shot.
  • Practice receiving the ball with different parts of your body, focusing on keeping it as close as possible.
  • You can work with a partner, a rebounder or find a wall you can use or throw the ball up in the air to yourself.

Throw In

  • Throw ins are used to restart play when the ball goes out of bounds on the sidelines. Teams can use throw ins to their advantage when they have players that can throw the ball accurately or a long distance.
  • There are a few rules that must be followed to have a proper throw in.
    • Two hands on the ball.
    • Throw must come from behind your head and you need to follow through.
    • Both feet must be touching the ground on or behind the sideline.
  • You can practice your accuracy by finding a target (partner, wall, tree …) and trying to hit it from different distances. You can also work on throwing the ball as far as you can, making sure to follow all the rules.
