Hey guys! Today we are going to talk
about some basic volleyball skills. Specifically, we’re going to break down
the serve and the pass. When you’re serving you want to position your feet shoulder-width apart with your non-dominant foot in front. Then you want to hold the ball on a platform with the fingers from your non-dominant hand. [lyrical music] The next step to serving is you want to draw your dominant arm back so both of your arms resemble a bow and arrow. When tossing the ball, you want to lift
with your legs and guide the ball upwards with your hand before releasing it. You want the ball to be going a little more than an arm’s length high above your front shoulder. When swinging and contacting the ball, you will want to make sure that you have a firm hand and are contacting the ball at its highest point. This ensures that you will get a lot of power and accuracy behind your
serve. Here’s what your serve should look like when you combine all these steps
together. Remember to draw your dominant arm back, toss the ball up high, contact
the ball at its highest point, and follow-through. It’s important to remember where you last contact the ball is the direction that your serve will go in. Now I’m going to explain how to pass a
volleyball. The pass is an important skill to learn because it is the first contact you will have with the volleyball on your side of the court. A good pass sets up the ball for the setter. When getting ready to pass, you want to make sure that your feet are shoulder-width apart, your knees are bent, and your arms are out in front of you
ready to receive the pass. When connecting your hands you want to put one hand out flat and the other hand on top of it with your fingers crossing
over each other. Then bring your two thumbs together so they’re pointing straight ahead. The directions your thumbs are pointing in will indicate the direction that the ball will be passed in. Now you’re demonstrating the proper pass form without a volleyball. It’s important to use your knees to lift the ball, rather than swinging your arms. This will give you more control. Here’s what your pass should look like when you combine all these steps together. Remember to keep your weight on your toes, keep your platform straight, lift with your legs, and don’t swing your arms. When passing a volleyball, you want to get it into the upper right hand corner of the court, where the setter will be so they can give the best possible set to the hitter. Thank you so much for taking the time to
listen to my instructional video on how to serve and pass a volleyball. I hope you all feel more confident in your ability to complete these volleyball skills. Remember practice makes perfect! [lyrical music]
