I don't think you want to avoid crowding the net. If you are flowing forward and making contact within say 2-4 feet of the net, you shouldn't see a lot of balls come back or at least not a lot of strong passing shots or strong lobs. I would like to hit all my volleys between 1 and 2 feet from the net if possible. Of course, it isn't always possible.
