The hit

The hit is a powerful means of distributing the ball over both short and longer distances. Due to the speed of execution of a hit, it has the benefit of greater deception than a slap. The hit and the push are the two distribution skills covered in this book. The difference between a hit and a push is that the hands are held together on the stick for a hit and the stick is swung, whereas the hands are apart on the stick for a push, and the stick starts on the ball.
