Trapping(stopping) the ball
PASS & STOP
To trap the ball you have to position your stick so that it will be where the ball is going. Then put your stick so that your knuckles are touching the ground. Then angle your stick a little bit at the ground. If you are right handed then put your right leg at the end of the stick handle, and bend your leg and then have your other leg so it is almost touching the ground. Then you will have a lot of leg strength. According to the author “anticipating where the ball will arrive and positioning your body accordingly.”
Passing the ball correctly There are a few diﬀerent ways to pass the ball but this is one of the ways. To pass the ball you keep your stick on the ball at first, and this is a good pass for short distances and since you keep your stick on the ball is is harder for the opponent to get the ball. First you have to quickly position your feet, so if you are right handed put your left foot next to the stick and your left foot behind so you have a lot of strength and when you transfer your weight to the other leg then you will have strength in that leg and you push the ball really hard.

Trapping and passing the ball The first picture is showing how to trap(stop) the ball and how to position your stick and legs correctly. The second picture is showing what it can look like when you are getting ready to do a push pass to pass the ball. The third picture is showing another type of pass where you hit the ball really hard and don’t keep your stick on the ball the whole time
This is showing how to do a drag
pass with your stick pointed at the target and the target could either be a team-mate or the goal. You would usually use this pass if you played attack (oﬀense) or midfield, but not defense. If you are a striker then when you can hit the ball make sure your stick doesn’t go above your waste or else you might get a foul. If you are trying to receive the pass you have to make a good lead first and then stop the ball. You could also try to intercept the pass. According to the author “power is not always the most important characteristic of a pass.”
How to drag the ball A drag is a skill that you would use to fake out another player or to get around or dodge that player. For a drag you have to push (vacuum) the ball towards your opponent’s left leg or right (depending on which way you want to go) then you keep your stick on the ball, but turn your stick so it is facing the other way from your opponent. Then push the ball that way, keeping your stick on the ball. “The idea is to use your body and weight to transfer to convince your opponent that you are making a pass to your right and to get her to commit to that end.”
