Volleyball passing is how you contact the ball with both of your arms held together at the wrists so the ball lands on your forearms which you use to guide it to a specific target, either getting it to another player or to transfer the ball over the net.
Passing the ball is a skill which does take a lot of practice.
What is the correct way to pass a volleyball?
One of the best ways you can improve your volleyball passing accuracy when you're in serve receive is to stay in a low body position before and during the performance of the skill.
Whether you are a defensive specialist, a libero or a front row player who has to pass the volleyball alot in serve receive you will increase your chances of getting the ball to your intended target, if you maintain a low position while you are in the process of passing.
Once the referee blows their whistle blows, if you're passing the ball, you shouldn't stand up.
You should keep your knees bent in a loaded position and shoulders leaning forward so they are over your knees so that you can move quickly in any direction in order to receive the serve and pass the ball.
Why does this increase your chances of passing a ball accurately to your target?
So, if you have a problem with accuracy while you are passing a ball then remind yourself to stay low as the ball crosses the net and travels towards you.
