Pass and Step Back
Practice your two-handed chest passing skills and catching the basketball skills while enjoying this easy game.
What to do:
- If possible, print out these directions. Read them through with your child before you begin.
- Explain to your child that the object of the game is to determine the farthest point at which you both can still pass and catch the ball using the two-handed chest pass.
How to play:
- Stand three feet apart and face each other. You pass the basketball to your child using the two-handed chest pass.
- After you pass the basketball, take a step back. At this time, your child should pass the basketball to you and then take a step back.
- Continue taking a step away from each other after each pass and see how far away from each other you can stand and still successfully pass the basketball.
