Volleyball drill: overhand and underhand ball control

Suitable for the following techniques: passing setting

Overhand and underhand ball control

  • All players have a ball.
  • Divide the group into two - maximum 4 to 5 players per group.
  • Near the net is the ball pit.
Exercise per group:

  • Play up overhead in front of yourself and keep playing.
  • Slowly move towards the net, keep playing up.
  • Overhand: Play up high, quickly get under the ball, stand still and then play.
  • At the net: => play the ball IN the ball pit. The distance does not matter.
  • Ball on the ground => start again from the back line.
Same exercise can be done with underhand play up to the net + play IN the ball box.

For the better players there can be a third round:

  • Ball bin on the back line of the other field, players must now pass the net. Play over it, themselves under it. Underhand or overhead no longer matters, as long as the back line is crossed.
