With these basic volleyball passing drills remember to

b) Hold your wrists together keeping elbows straight to form a "platform" which is what you use to make contact with the ball.

c) With bent knees and in an athletic stance with hips lower than the oncoming ball, contact the ball with your platform keeping arms very straight so the ball contacts your arms only once.

With your hips lower than the oncoming served ball you can get under it and give it lift from a better angle with your legs.
