Passing - One Common
The most common fault on passing technique is the
player heavily swings the
ball with arms.
Do not swing with arms - just place the arms under the
A served ball approaches fast; therefore the player
should never swing at the ball - it is enough just to place arms under
the ball to
direct the platform toward the target.
Plenty of attention
should be paid on arms to avoid swinging. If a player needs to put
extra power behind her bump pass, it could be done by a very
light push with legs, body and arms - still by keeping the
almost steady - just by directing the ball

Volleyball Drills Passing - How to Practice
The coach introduces the skill and makes sure a
does the technique correctly without the ball.
Passing - Adding the Toss
On this progression, the coach takes a ball into
play and tosses it to the player.
Passing - Passing with Footwork
This progression with a footwork need a little bit
and could be
repeated in several practices. Again, it is
recommended to perform passing with footwork at the net as
- The coach or target starts tossing the
volleyball a little bit
the left or right side of the player. The player performs
steps to keep the volleyball in front of her body.
- The coach should pay attention to shuffle
should be short, weight more on the toes than heels (in other
words: forward) and cross over steps are
not allowed. While moving to the volleyball the arms should be
unattached - "in front of the body", ready to be attached.
- The coach should also pay attention to the fact
that a player stops
completely and has
a well balanced position before she passes (bumps) the ball back to the
coach or target.
- The coach also needs to work
on tossing the ball in front and
back of the player, so the player needs to shuffle backwards
As soon as the coach feels the players are ready
they can move to perform the same on the net.
