Volleyball drill: responsiveness

Suitable for the following techniques: defense, general

Responsiveness

responsiveness-1

  • The purpose of the exercise is to train the defender A in his reaction ability as well as to work together in handling the ball.
  • Important for this exercise:
    • EVERYTHING is touche!
  • The ball that is played/tossed by the trainer (high and far; not hit!) is allowed to come well outside the lines, because the ball must be handled as if it jumped off the block.
  • A. stands with his back to the net and concentrates on the defenders B/C.
  • If the ball is played by T/Sv. then either B or C demands the ball ("LOS!") and moves to play the ball.
  • A. sprints after B/C and offers himself vocally ("HERE!").
  • B/C must be able to hear where A is before playing the ball.
  • B/C plays the ball high to A and A plays the ball well inside the 3-metre box. T./Sv. makes the catch.
  • If there are 8 or more players, this exercise can be done at both ends; if there are less than 8 players, it is played at one end and B/C rotate with players waiting outside the lines.
  • In that case, work at a high tempo so that nobody stands still for too long.
  • A. changes after 5 or 10 balls; every player takes the position A. twice.
  • NOTE: The exercise goes at a high tempo!
  • When A. has handled the ball, the next ball follows immediately.
  • It is up to the player turning in the ball to get in position in time!
  • Expansion:
    • Place a basket on a spot of your choice within the 3-meter section.
    • The second ball must touch the basket (top) or go through the basket.
