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.
Anticipate where you need to be.
Get there BEFORE you start passing the ball.
By focusing early on the ball while it's in the server's hands you get an early indication on whether she is going to serve short, cross court, or down the line.
Keep your eyes on the ball.
Visually track it as it leaves the server's hand, crosses the net, and all the way into your platform.
Many passers get distracted, taking their eyes off the ball or tracking it once it crosses the net, which is late.
Focusing on the ball early lets you anticipate necessary minor adjustments in your platform or with your feet.
Square your shoulders to the net before contacting the ball.
In other words try and keep your shoulders parallel to the net when passing.
You won't have any more arm adjusting once you make contact with the ball.
Shift your body weight from your back (left) foot to your front (right) foot when contacting the ball.
Do this when you need to add a little more barbecue sauce to the ball to get it to the target without swinging your platform.

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.
Many of these volleyball practice drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.
If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
