Q

"Any tips for more accurate behind the back passes?"

A
I have my students practice behind the back passing, by passing to a target against the wall. Their back is to the wall and they simply pass back to the wall, turn, catch the rebound, and do the same thing with the other hand. After they can do that consistently for 20+ reps, (with both hands), I start having them catch the ball directly off of the wall, with either hand. As they improve, the distance away from the wall is increased, which improves their power and accuracy. When they have achieved proficiency against the wall, it becomes an easy transition to turn that skill into an indefensible shot.
