Hey, my name’s Addison from Captain Bills
and I’m going to teach you how to bump a volleyball. Bumping or passing is probably the most important
thing in volleyball; it’s probably the backbone of volleyball. The main thing you want to
worry about is your platform. In order to pass the ball you never want to take your
knuckles and interlock them like this. It can, it’s very ineffective because it can
cause you to hit the ball here which will go out of control. And you can also hurt or
break one of your fingers doing that. So what I do is I take my hands put one on top of
the other and then close them, and then that way I get my platform here on my forearms
which is used to pass the volleyball. When you’re passing the volleyball you want to
make sure it hits between your wrist and your elbow. Never up high and never on your hands.
This is the flattest part of your arms which is your platforms the flattest part which
will give you the most consistent pass. Also in passing you want to bend your knees and
use your legs. It’s not all in your arms. It’s mainly in your legs so when you’re passing
you’re going to get down low, get your butt to the ground and use your platform and also
your legs to guide the ball where you’re passing to. And that’s how to bump a volleyball.
