hen learning how to pass, the three main things to remember are keeping low, keeping
your arms straight, and keeping the ball in front of you. Following these three rules will help you
build a good foundation to being a great passer.
eeping low and on the balls of your feet will help you to maintain balance. This means that you will be able to move quickly for the ball
and have a better chance of getting to a ball that is difficult to reach. If you are not balanced, you don't
have control of your body. If you don't have control of your body, you will not be able to control where
the ball is going.
eeping your arms straight and forming a flat surface is important for passing the ball in the direction you want
it to go in. Think of it as if you were bouncing a ball off of a wall. If the wall is flat,
the ball will come right back to you. If the wall is curved, the ball will bounce off in another
direction. The same is true with your arms. By keeping a flat platform, you can easily direct the
ball where you want it to go. This will greatly improve your passing accuracy.
eeping in front of the ball is crucial to getting off a good pass. Always, when possible, move your feet to position your body
in front of the ball. Avoid passing from the side whenever possible. The ball will tend to go
where your momentum is going. If your momentum is going off to one side, the ball is more likely to
go off to that side. If your momentum is going towards your target, the ball will go there too.
ometimes it is impossible to worry about good form. You can't get in front of every ball,
and sometimes the ball is hit high and you can't stay low. When playing defense, the rules go out the window.
It is hard enough diving for a dink or digging in for a hard hit, so just do what you can. Try to
keep good form, but if only one hand or foot can get to the ball, do what you have to. Don't be lazy.
Doing it right may seem boring and tedious, but building good passing habits will only improve your game.
he entire offensive game is set up by the pass. Remember that a good pass leads to a good set, and a good set will lead to a good
hit and a point or sideout.
