How To Do Volleyball Passing Drills

Step-by-step Instructions

Here is what you need to do...
Step 1

Work on your technique-Make sure your shoulders are shrugged, feet are shoulder-width, and your hands are properly placed. Always keep your eyes on the ball when you are passing.

Step 2

Grab a volleyball, and pass the ball up in the air as many times as possible. Keep track of your high score, and try to beat that high score.

Step 3

Using a volleyball, set yourself up in front of a wall. Pass the volleyball with your forearms against the wall so it bounces back to your forearms. Repeat this as many times as possible, and keep track of your score.

Step 4

Repeat step two, only this time do it with a partner or with a small group of friends. Try to pass the ball back and forth or around the circle so that everyone in the group passes the ball.

Step 5

Set up a target or a garbage can at the net. Have someone toss the volleyball from the other side of the net, and try to pass the ball into the targeted area. Repeat as needed.

Step 6

Repeat step 5, only this time instead of tossing, have your partner serve the ball and see how many you are able to pass into the targeted area.

Special Attention

Difficulties people often experience or parts that need special attention to do it right.

Passing takes a TON of practice. It can be very hard at first, but the more you practice the better off you will be in the long run. Passing is arguably the most important volleyball skill, since it sets up all other parts of the volleyball play.
