In this video guide we’re going to show you the technique for the chest pass.

The chest pass is probably the first pass technique you’ll learn in netball. It’s a basic pass that you should be able to rely on, and with some practice you’ll be able to master it fairly quickly too. The chest pass is a simple, accurate and controlled pass that you’ll see used by players in every position on the court, and it’s mainly used for shorter distances. You’ll often see the chest pass used by mid court players, like centres and wing attacks as they feed balls into the goal shooter and goal attack inside the circle.

As the name suggests, this pass is thrown at chest height so it’s a direct pass that can only really be used when there is no defender between the passer and receiver.
