Keep your eyes on the ball. Visually track it as it leaves the server’s hand, crosses the net, and all the way into your platform.
Many passers get distracted, taking their eyes off the ball or tracking it once it crosses the net, which is late.
Focusing on the ball early lets you anticipate necessary minor adjustments in your platform or with your feet.
Remember to keep your shoulders squared to the net and angle your platform to the target before contacting the ball.
Do it early, so you won’t have any more arm adjusting once you make contact with the ball.
As needed for deep serves, shift your body weight from your back (left) foot to your front (right) foot when contacting the ball, without swinging your arms.
Lefties do the opposite.
Pass with both feet on the volleyball court floor rather than doing the “jump- bump.”
You can make small adjustments with your feet on the ground which you can’t do with your feet in the air.
In practices, maintain good passing technique all the time, especially for the easy serves.
You’ve taught your body the proper passing positioning and will automatically react with the correct technique no matter how hard or fast the serve is.
Work on foot speed and agility drills.
You’ll be able to get behind each ball quickly with your feet first by increasing your short distance speed, giving yourself plenty of time to present your platform, lower your hips under the ball and make the perfect pass.
