Volleyball coaching legend Dave Shoji explains the techniques he uses to teach his players to make the best possible pass; first, he breaks down the ready position, and then he demonstrates the proper hand position, forearm and elbow position and the proper stance to perform a simple pass. The most effective footwork for several movement patterns is explained and demonstrated with drills. Finally Shoji explains the floor responsibilities for the four-and two-man formation and the importance of communication between players to maximize the effectiveness of these formations.
