Volleyball drill: attacking and scoring

Suitable for the following techniques: attack

Attacking and scoring

In this exercise, the attackers are instructed to score directly with their attack. The defence of course gets the assignment to prevent this.

The game is played with a fixed distributor. A number of attackers stand at one side of the playing field with a ball. They play the ball to the distributor, who gives a setup for the attacker to attack.

If the attacker scores, he goes back to the back of the line of attackers (as a reward). If the attacker does not score, he must defend. For that purpose, the following sequence is used: Attacker - A - B - C - D - Attacker.

At the defense A is the blocker.

Discuss clearly in advance what immediate scoring means: ball on the ground or also if there is no playable defense.
