Why are volleyball pass drills important in volleyball?

Passing drills are important because passing a tough serve accurately and consistently enough with good technique and clean body movements...

to the same spot every time ...

🏐 is important because it helps your setter read your body language easier and know what you’re going to do and how you’re going to do it...which makes it easier for her to get to the ball you pass.
