MOST READ Volleyball Articles on Passing

Passing is the technique players use to receive a ball that is served to you from an opposing team's server.  

The pass is the first contact in a team's offense, once the ball has been served into their court by the opponent. When you pass the ball, you are transferring the ball to another  teammate who makes the second of three contacts your team is allowed when the ball is on your side of the court. 

There are two skills you must conquer if you are going to even think about playing competitive volleyball, the first is serving, the second is passing. Quite simply if you can't pass you can't play the game.
