There are three volleyball forearm pass cues you should use to improve your passing skills
The next thing high school players should remember when trying to improve their volleyball forearm pass is to always keep your arms together without breaking them apart when making contact with the ball.
For a period of time while playing college volleyball I was guilty of breaking my arms apart against easy serves and free balls.
But it’s not a good habit to get into, because sooner or later you’ll find yourself having to pass a jump served ball.
The harder the serve, the more important it is to keep your arms together so you can control the ball.
When you bump the ball with your feet in the air, its famously called the "jump bump" and many new players have a tendency to try and 'jump bump" the ball to their target.
If your feet are in the air then you can’t change directions or make any last minute or minor adjustments to your body positioning, but if you keep your feet on the ground you have control over your body movements and can adjust to the ball accordingly.
The best thing you could do, is to quickly back your body up or open up while staying in a low position which gives the ball a few more seconds and a bit more space to come down where it has less movement in the air and you have more control.
So, as much as you can, you want to avoid the jump bump.
Lastly, wherever the ball is you want to move yourself to get into position behind it with your feet first.
The faster you can move your feet, the faster you can get yourself in the best position behind the ball in order to pass it.
Practicing this type of movement is called foot speed training and this type of volleyball conditioning training comes in different forms.
You can regularly do some forms of lower body speed training before you do your pregame warmup drills, where you should do a series of short sprints forward, backward and sideways to help you increase your foot speed and reactive abilities so that you can get behind the ball fast for your passing.
