Volleyball Violations.

Learning how to pass a volleyball is one of the first skills a future high school volleyball varsity player needs to learn how to do well.

When passing the ball, the goal is to get the ball to travel from one place to another, whether its from one teammate to another or from one player to over the net. 

When do volleyball violations for passing occur?

Volleyball violations in passing happen often when a team is on serve receive and they are facing an opposing team with a tough server. 

The server will do everything to make it difficult for you or one your team's passer's to pass the ball perfectly up to your setter. 

They are going to serve as tough or as strategically as possible to force a passing error so your team cannot run an offensive play against them.
