Tod Kowalczyk Pefect Passing Drill
University of Toledo head coach, Tod Kowalczyk, adopted this passing drill from Thad Matta at Ohio State.
In the drill, players must pass the ball continuously for 35 seconds in the half court without dropping it or making a bad pass.
This drill is similar to the Argentine Passing Drill. The difference is that Argentine passing involves 8 players, and Perfect Passing involves 6 players.
Editor’s Note from Brian: In the video, Tod mentions that that college shot clock is 35 seconds. The video was shot prior to the shot clock being changed to 30 seconds. You can set the time for whatever fits your needs.

I know that this is the first time that Coach Cole has worked with these players, so the demonstration is not as good as it would be with her players. I know that a lot of these passes are not game-like, but you can work with your players to make the drill more game-like. What I do like about the drill is the concept of moving the defenders bodies, hands, and eyes with pass fakes.
