(English) The player steps toward their target and throws the pass across their body, twisting their body so that their chest faces the target as the ball is released.

Young players will often start a long pass at their hip and their hand underneath the ball and then throw it by moving their arm in a circular motion. This technique will usually be inaccurate and should be discouraged.

As with any pass, taking a small step forward as the pass is thrown helps to give power to the pass.
