Former college volleyball player and CoachUp coach Lok-Tin Yao shows how to bump pass a volleyball. A good bump pass allows your team to set up the possession, and control the tempo of the game.
Lok-Tin Yao: Hi, I’m Lok-Tin Yao, former collegiate volleyball player and CoachUp coach. And this is the bump pass. Effective passing will make the play easier and allow you to dictate the tempo offensively. For passing, we wanna have a nice solid base, alright. We wanna have one foot behind the other, knees slightly bent. And then for our arms, we wanna have them straight out about 45 degree angle away from the chest. And then we wanna overlap our four fingers and fold them in. We wanna have our forearms facing out so that it would contact the ball, so this is where you wanna contact the ball, and then, as we pass, we wanna push the ball with our legs rather than our arms so that it’s a nice easy pass to target.
