The volleyball bump also known as passing in volleyball is usually the first contact a player makes when their team is on offense and the ball has just come into their court because they received serve from the opposing team.
Being able to bump in volleyball is one of the two most important skills to learn as a high school player, so on this page I wanted to talk about why its important not to run and pass the ball at the same time.
Of course, when coaching volleyball the majority of the time I talk about what you should be doing.

Your passing in volleyball will improve when your volleyball bump is made when you make two separate and distinct movements.
