Aerial passing makes comeback in field hockey

...“They were popular in the ’70s and ’80s, then they went away,” Doughty said. “Back then they were called big scoops.”

Aerial passes are common in the high school game these days, a byproduct of their use on travel teams where players are generally more skilled.

“I’ve been doing them for two years,” Winthrop junior Katie Perkins said. “I learned them over the summer at Majestix camp. They use more air skills like air dribbling and aerial passes.”

A big scoop is an accurate way to describe an aerial pass since the passer, generally starts from a dead ball situation and scoops the ball over the defense, sometimes to a teammate but more often to open space where a teammate can run onto the ball.
