  In our camps, we break down the passing and hitting approach skills into
basic elements:  the proper way to hold your arms, the basic 3-step
approach with arm-swing, etc...  I hope your daughter's coach has done
something similar.  If so, she can help herself by simply reviewing these
basic elements correctly to the point where she doesn't need to think
about them once a ball and teammates are incorporated.  I am assuming,
here, that she is a beginner and her problems have to do with some
fundamental flaws in her overall technique.

  If she is more advanced, and her difficulties have more to do with the
finer points of the game, then, to be honest, it will be difficult with
only two people because she needs gamelike conditions.  However, I'm sure
that someone out there (Rolly?) has some good drills.

  In any case, I would hope that your daughter's coach could help you out
if you ask.  If that isn't the case, and no one else offers a specific
