Volleyball drill: responding to a ball
Responding to a ball
- Divide the group into pairs.
- Have one person of the pair start at the net, while the others take place on the back line.
- The persons on the backline make sure they have a ball and possibly a spare ball.
- The persons at the net are going to make a block jump, after which they immediately turn around to defend a ball from the person on the back line. This ball can be tapped, hit or played into the court.
It is therefore important to turn around immediately after the block and to look at the situation. They should also be careful not to step in too quickly, in connection with a possible passed ball.
Let the people at the net defend 10 balls, after which they are exchanged.
