It's important to adopt these beach volleyball forearm passing tips when playing on the sand.
Mastering the beach passing skill will take time, finesse and a lot of practice.
It usually also takes a lot of mental focus, concentration and communication with your partner.
These should hopefully help you narrow your focus on the game plan you should establish with your partner.
Indoor volleyball players are trained to pass the ball from anywhere on the volleyball court, all the way up to the traditional indoor setter target area which is just one foot right of center on the net.
We all know, that area is located between zone 2 and zone 3 in the front row, which is about four feet in front of the right antenna within the ten foot line.
The rules of sand volleyball doubles are different.
If you or your partner passes the ball straight ahead of you, keeping the ball four to five feet off the net, then you or your partner will automatically know where to go or where to be in order to set the volleyball.
If this passing rule is established between two partners then whenever the partner on the right passes the ball then the one on the left should be ready move to a spot between her partner and four feet off the net and vice versa.
The passer doesn't have time to try and "find" their partner by moving the received serve all around the court.
So that's why the best point of reference to establish is straight ahead, not at an angle.
I can approach straight ahead or I can take a few steps to my left and approach at a slight angle like I do in indoor volleyball.
In beach volleyball, as a passer turned spiker I want to maintain as much control over the play as possible.
So by passing the volleyball straight ahead I eliminate any additional movement I would need to make, to go chase the ball before spiking the ball over the net.
Beach volleyball players spend many hours of practice on making this volleyball passing strategy work effectively.
By performing numerous serves and by passing a volleyball repeatedly in practice, a beach player reinforces in her mind and in her partner's mind, where she needs to end up on the court to pass the ball while her partner begins to automatically know where she needs to set up to set the ball or in other words where the setter needs to be in relation to the passer.
