Bridge the gap between Soft Skills and Hard Skills, to create an optimum balance of Art, Grace and Power; and make the game more appealing to the masses.

Core Themes covered in this issue

In this issue we are going to go a step further, while covering “How to” pass the ball with a mini hit to a teammate, while maintaining the ball possession, as a team. Especially, when the opponents execute a full court press in the RDQ. And leave themselves vulnerable in other pockets of the field.
Technical: How to execute a short or long range hit with a short back swing in the RDQ.
Power point presentations and video clips:

It will be hard, for some of you, to understand the topics covered in this issue and the ones in the future, especially the game concepts and the terminology.
