To assess passers at the beginning of the season, have 2 players line up in the back row, with a target person in center front.
Serve 25 balls to each of them, first from the opposite 10' line, and then from the endline, having someone keep stats.
Players get a + for a pass within 3' of the target, a - for a shank or bad pass, and 1/2 point for a good effort on a difficult serve.
Total up the stats on several consecutive days, and you'll have an idea who your passers will be.
