How to Pass Bump / Bump a Volleyball | Volleyball Lessons


One of the basic skills of beach volleyball
is called passing. It’s also known as bumping. What you want do is you want to have your
arms in front of you, out straight, and you want to contact the ball anywhere from here
to here on your arm. If you contact it too far by your fingers
or your thumbs, there’s too many angles and ridges there, and it’s unpredictable. If you
contact it too high up here, it’s hard to direct the ball. What you want to do, generally,
is have your feet about shoulder width apart. It just depends. Sometimes you can’t get there,
depending on how the ball is served or hit at you. You want to be balanced and you want to have
your weight slightly forward and your arms in front of you. Have a little touch on the
ball where you bring it up, acting as if your legs are a spring. Get low, platform straight,
like a spring. You want to face the net when you’re passing
and you want to pass usually two to three feet off the net so that your partner has
time to get there. Unlike indoor, your partner’s not at the net
waiting to set the ball. They’re back in servicing with you, so you need to give them time to
get up to the net and set you the ball. And that’s how you pass or bump a ball in beach
volleyball.
