How well you handle the ball and control it to your intended target insures that you become a good passer that enjoys alot of playing time because you are the player who can neutralize a tough serve and get the ball to your setter in serve receive.
Here are two habits that you should adopt
in order to get a higher percentage of better volleyball passing reps to your setter or intended target.
If you are late in getting positioned behind the ball then you have to do a better job of moving your feet and quickly moving to get stopped behind the ball, so you have a greater chance of controlling the ball 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.
For those beginner players who are working on getting better volleyball passing technique and haven't yet developed great body control or ball control skills, this usually means
to try and get the ball to the target.
The lesson here is to avoid trying to do two things at once.

Volleyball Ball Handling Do's
What happens when you run and and pass at the same time?
Your forearm pass becomes less accurate and it'll be harder to get the ball to your target, which is usually your setter.
In most cases, because you're moving towards the net your forward motion will help deflect the ball immediately back over the net, which gives an easy free ball to your opposing team.
Something you don't want to happen.
The passing action should be performed from a balanced position with both feet on the ground whenever possible.
Ideally, you want to stop moving by the time the ball contacts your platform.
