Coaches will preach at you not to swing during your pass, and I agree completely ... except on the 3rd hit. If you're in a position where your only option is to put the ball over with a bump, turn sideways and hit it, similar to a baseball player, swinging at a pitch.
This allows you to put at least some heat on your bump, rather than handing your opponent a nice little free ball to ram back down your throat.
