X Passing is a drill we run to simulate several key components of our 4-Out 1 in man-to-man offense. In this drill we are working on the following key concepts:
1. Creating a lead on the wing.
2. Passing with the correct hand and communicating with our hands (break open to wing and show outside hand).
3. Establishing triple threat on a catch (rips and sweeps).
4. Post players posting above the block on the 1st hash.
5. Feeding the post with a bounce pass or overhead pass to their numbers.
6. Post players catching with 2 hands and 2 feet, then "chin and check middle.'
7. Last but definitely not least: communication. We call names on every pass, every time.

Drill starts with a pass from the slot area to the wing player creating a lead using a v-cut and showing outside hand to the passer.
On a catch, the wing player establishes a triple threat position using either a low sweep or a vicious pivot. The wing player must fake a pass to make a pass before throwing ball into the post. Post player should call out the players name. Easy rotation rule--follow your pass!
On a low post catch, we teach chin and check middle in case of double team. Then post player fans the ball out to the opposite slot area.
While the ball is in the air from the post to the slot, the wing creates a lead and uses v-cut to get open showing outside hand.
Again wing player uses a ear to ear vicious pivot or a low sweep to establish triple threat.
Wing player fakes a pass to make a pass and then passes into post and drill continues in same manner.
