We do different pressure passing drills. 

4 v 4 volleyball passing: Using the restricted area of the volleyball lines (service line to 10 foot line and the adjoining sides), have 4 offense and 4 defense. Cannot trap the ball. No dribbles on offense. If you turn it over, player who turned it over must get out and run around perimeter of playing area while 4 defense become offense, and 3 remaining offense become defense till runner joins back up. Hope this makes sense.

4 v 3 10 passes: Playing inside three point line and to the baseline, have 3 offensive players try to complete 10 passes in a row vs 4 defensive players. Defense must trap. Offense has no dribbles. 

Ultimate basketball: Can play 3 v 3, 4 v 4, 5 v 5. Start however you like (have players run around inside 3 pt line is one way, another is tip drill) once a team gets possession they are to play offense with no dribble, defense cannot trap. Only dribble allowed is in their paint trying to score. Encourage diagonal cuts, meeting passes, positive passes (passes ahead, not neutral or negative), short snappy passes as opposed to long passes. 

In all these drills, we encourage passes below the head of the receiver. 

Hope this helps in some way! Good luck! 

When you play 4 v 4 volleyball do you score it?  What do you score in it?
