  • To be a next level playmaker, you must develop your ability to pass in a creative way from creative delivery points.

    Most players are taught to pass in line with where they look. The best playmakers in the game use the ‘diagonal’ and ‘frontal’ planes that don’t telegraph where their passes are going.

    Join PGC Director, Tyler Coston, as breaks down five passes you must have in your toolbox:


    Diagonal Plane – passes from your shoulder

    1) Flick Pass – off the shoulder and dribble without giving away the passing angle
    2) Cross-Body Pass – across your body from the opposite hand

    Frontal Plane – passes 90 degrees off either shoulder and side

    3) Hook Pass – over and around defensive hands without having to use a ball fake
    4) Rugby/Shovel Pass – below the hands of the defender
    5) Behind The Back Pass – from behind, off the catch or off the dribble

    When you have the tools to use diagonal and frontal-plane passes, the entire court will open up. You’ll pass on-time, on-target, with accuracy and the defense won’t know where the ball is coming from.

    If you want to become an unstoppable playmaker, join us at a PGC camp and discover how to think the game, lead your team, and run the show.
