A few pointers from 7MLC:

  • You don’t want the ball to float in the air, as this gives your opponents more time to challenge your teammate’s first touch.
  • Point the toes of your standing foot towards your target and hit the ball with your laces.
  • Adding backspin (by chopping down) makes it easier for your teammate to control the ball.
  • Body position: lean back for high pass, hang over for a low over the ground pass.
