To improve your passing skills in volleyball, there are three important forearm pass cues to keep in mind:
There are three volleyball forearm pass cues you should use to improve your passing skills
One of the key aspects to focus on when working on your volleyball forearm pass is keeping your arms together without breaking them apart upon contact with the ball.
This is particularly important when facing harder serves, as keeping your arms together allows for better control and accuracy in passing.
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.

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.
Many of these volleyball practice drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.
If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
