  • Players use their hands to throw or “pass” the ball to a teammate.
  • Passing is crucial for teamwork, allowing players to work together and create opportunities to score.


  • Bouncing is the skill of dribbling the basketball, meaning players control the ball by repeatedly bouncing it on the floor.
  • It helps players move with the ball while maintaining possession.
  • Bouncing requires good hand-eye coordination and ball control.
