Pass the Ball Ahead

To effectively run the fast break, players must develop a mentality of passing the ball ahead to a player that is open. They must also develop the ability to throw the pass and this can be challenging for young players. Rather than throw the pass whilst stationary, players should be encouraged to develop the ability to throw a chest pass, whilst on the run.

Coaches should not stop activities to berate players for missing a pass, instead coaches should accept that as the mentality and skills of fast break basketball are developed, there will be mistakes made. These mistakes are an important part of development.
