The chest pass is an awesome basketball drill for building on your accuracy and passing ball movement. In order to perform this drill, you want to begin by standing approximately six to eight feet away from your partner. To throw a chest pass, step forward with your dominant foot, extend your arms fully, and make a pass. Your partner should grab the ball and return the ball back to you using the same chest pass. Your goal is to perform ten successful chest passes. Begin by stepping forward with your dominant foot for the first five passes. With the next five passes, alternate your feet and step out with your less dominant foot.
To get more advanced with this basketball drill, move back about four or five steps and repeat the drill. Once you have completed ten passes successfully at this range step back further and repeat the steps. Continue moving back and repeating the steps until you cannot make a successful pass to your partner.
The chest pass is an integral play in any game of basketball. To strengthen your offense you must be able to perform this pass with accuracy, speed, and strength.
