Volleyball Pass Techniques: Watch The Ball Before It Crosses The Net

You can get better at your volleyball pass technique by tracking the ball earlier when its in the opposing server's hands then track it as it crosses the net. 


How can you get better at volleyball passing?

You can improve the quality of your volleyball pass technique immediately by watching the opposing server closely as soon as she has the ball in her hands ready to serve. 

Tracking the ball early is the key to better volleyball passing skills.

Watch The Ball When Its In the Server's Hands 


First, while waiting for the server to complete their pre-serve routine you need to check out the server's body position to pick up any cues as to where she could be serving. 

What should you be looking for?



After you've checked out the server's body position and made your adjustments based on where it looks like the server is going to serve, then quickly share this information with your teammates.

What can you communicate to your passers?

It takes two seconds to say this very quickly to your other teammates before the opposing team serves.

Sharing any serving tendencies that the current server has shown is what to talk about at this point. 

  • If the server has a jump serve then remind everyone "Hey watch the jump" or 
  • If they have a float serve "Look out for the deep float serve down the line!"

Next, you maintain your focus on the opposing team's server while



After the referee has blown the whistleyour focus should be completely on the ball while its still in the server's tossing hand.

Once the server tosses the ball in the air for their pre-serve ritual there really isn't much they can change.
