In my article "11 Ways to Sharpen Your Serve Receive Game" which made me a contributing author to the Active.com site I coach volleyball passing skills online to players who want to learn how to improve their passing skills while in serve receive.
I reprinted an excerpt from that article so you can read four of my popular tips on this page.
Here are 4 tips liberos, defensive specialists and back court passers can use to improve their serve reception and heighten the efficiency of their overall team's offense.
Neutralizing your opponent's service game is key to offensive point scoring success on the volleyball court.
Run with your arms apart to get in position.
You'll move faster. You want to be stopped before you pass the ball to avoid running and bumping simultaneously. You are not controlling the ball when you run and bump together, and this forward moving action usually makes the ball go right back over the net.
Present your platform after you've stopped running. Your feet need to be in a balanced position first.
Focus on the ball in the opposing server's hand, not on the server's face.
It's the ball you need to pass.
Focus on it as soon as the server gets it in her hands to serve.
Keep your eyes on the ball as it comes across the net. Taking your eyes off the ball as it travels over the middle of the court increases the chances of getting aced. You may also be unable to make minor adjustments to your feet to accurately pass the ball to your target.

Many of these volleyball practice drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.
