well it is hard to explain but ill try.

its where the team trys to change the direction of play e.g if the ball is being passed out left and they want to go right they will use a switch pass, the player with the ball runs at a slight angle to the left and the receiver runs at a slight angle to the right and their paths should cross but the player with the ball is slightly ahead, turns his torso to the left and pops the ball at the receiver who is running in a different direction. look at this the path of the receiver is R and the player with the ball is B, where they cross is C.

......B......R

.......Z...R

.........C

......X....B

....R........B

..R............B

R ...............B

(IGNORE THE DOTS) the Z represents when the player with the ball passes and the X represents where the receiver catches it.

hope this helps and this was the easiest way i could demonstrate it to you i hope this clears things up
