Ways To Do Volleyball Passing Drills Beginners Need To Do Correctly

Many volleyball passing drills beginners do are broken down into basic steps and as you learn those, then you progress to more advanced elements of the skill.




Passing or bumping the ball to yourself is one of the first volleyball drills for passing beginners learn to do. 

But they need to do it correctly. And as Kenny is showing in the video above bringing your passing platform up high at of above chest level is the wrong thing to do and every beginner does it, at first.  

In order to control the ball and make it do what you want it to do you need to keep your platform at belly button level. 

When Doing Volleyball Passing Drills Beginners Shouldn't Swing Arms Or Keep Their Platform Too Close To Their Body


When you keep your platform too close to your body you are forced to swing your arms when you contact the ball.



When using correct passing technique you want to avoid swinging your arms when you pass because you are in less control of the ball and you increase the probability of the ball going right back over the net or staying close to you instead of being re-directed to the setter who's waiting at the net.


When Doing Volleyball Passing Drills Beginners Should Keep Straight Platform Arms and Avoid Bending Elbows


Alot of newby players think they should bend their elbows when passing the ball but its the opposite. 

Elbows should stay straight and look like you a board you would use to contact the ball to redirect it to the setter. 




You also want to avoid the scooping motion before putting your hands together to form your platform.

When you scoop that's one extra movement you make that could possibly make you late when you form your platform which could be a problem against a server with a flat fast serve that gets across the net quickly.
