Volleyball drill: pass exercise
Suitable for the following techniques: passing
A good pass is indispensable to set up a counter attack. Therefore it cannot be trained enough. In this exercise, the emphasis is on the pass.
On one side, two players line up to pass. On this side there is also a playmaker. Both the passer and the defender remain standing. The servers rotate. They take turns serving the two passers. Server 4 begins at the net where the outside attack is normally performed.
Server 1 begins by serving. After the service he walks to the net to catch the service after him. His service is caught by one of the passers, the server gives a setup high outside and player four catches the setup. Player 4 then walks to the serving area and player 1 takes his place.
The exercise must be done in a quick tempo. When the server plays the ball, the next player should already start serving.
After 5 minutes, change passers and distributors.
If there are many players the field can be divided in two lengthwise.
