The three ways to improve your passing in volleyball is to increase your volleyball ball control
For better passing you need good ball control skills in order to deliver the ball to your intended target by using fast footwork that will improve the accuracy of your forearm pass.
If you adopt the following habits that I teach in my Boot Camp classes, in order to get a higher percentage of volleyball passes to your setter so your team can run an offensive play.
Get Positioned Early Behind The Ball Move Your Feet Faster
If you are late in getting positioned behind the ball
increase the chance of controlling the ball right to the target.
For beginner and intermediate level players when you are not positioned behind the ball, in many cases you have to swing your platform outside of your body to pass it.
this is okay for advanced players who have fast footwork and better body control but for beginner and intermediate players who face a slower serve...its best that they work on increasing their footwork speed.
For those beginner players who are working on getting better volleyball passing technique and haven't yet developed
this usually means
The lesson here is to avoid trying to do two things at once.
You definitely don't want to swing you arms when you pass the ball.
What happens when you run and and pass at the same time?
Your passing in volleyball becomes
especially if your setter is your target.
In most cases, the ball will go immediately over the net, which gives a free ball to your opposing team.
Something you don't want to happen.
The volleyball passing technique should be performed from a balanced position with both feet on the ground whenever possible.
Wherever it looks like the ball is going to cross the net and land in your area, which may be only a side step or two steps away from you, you want to beat the ball to THAT spot.
You want to try to be stopped so your momentum is not moving you forward.
Ideally, you want to stop moving by the time the ball contacts your platform.
First while in your serve receive passing ready position you want to stay light on your feet so that you can run, shuffle or side step to get to where you anticipate the ball is about to land.
Then your feet should be stopped, planted and balanced underneath you with your shoulders and body squared and parallel to the net.
A quick review..
It does happen quickly, but as you get better volleyball passing technique facing easy serves, you'll see a marked improvement in your passing skills and your ability to get the ball to the target.
Where do you need to go now?
