  • 2 players on p5 and p6
  • Catcher on p2/3
  • 2 server on p1

Execution 1

  • Service on p5 or p6
  • Pass to p2/3 and catch. Roll the ball to P1.
  • After 5x good passes, the passer changes to catcher and a server comes to pass.
  • The receiver starts serving.

Execution 2

  • No more catching, but setup to 4 and catching there.


  • Divide group into 2 fields.
  • Make 3 pairs
  • Trainer with ball on p1
  • 1st duo on P5 and P6 (passing)
  • 1 duo on p2 and p4


  • Trainer serves to p5 or p6, pass to p1
  • On p1 setup to p4, catch it and bring it to the trainer on his own field.
  • After the pass the 1st duo takes the places at p2 and p4 (change every time)

Tip: in case of an uneven number of pairs, new pairs are formed each time.

  • 2 rows of players
    • 1 row on the left back
    • 1 row at the right back
  • Create with 4 pawns a virtual line where they have to stand behind.
  • Trainer stands at the other side of the net and throws the ball somewhere in the field.
  • One of the two players in the front of the line calls out LOS orIK (let's agree).
  • This player passes ball to p2/3.
  • The non-passer catches the ball on p2/3.
  • The receiver returns the ball to the trainer.
  • Both players join in the other row.

  • shout-8
  • Purpose of the exercise:
    • To focus, communicate, master the task and persevere.
    • At "A" and above, with fewer people on the field for more intensity.
  • Explanation of the exercise:
    • 'Chaos Easy' starts as a warm-up, but ends as a true battle.
    • The players are placed in the field (it doesn't matter where).
    • The ball is caught and immediately thrown over the net (one play).
    • As the player catches, he throws the ball.
    • When a player has thrown the ball, he/she goes to a wall (back of the field or on the side) and taps it, then comes back into the field.
    • The other players on the team have moved forward one spot.
    • You notice how difficult it is to score.
    • When someone throws the wrong ball (into the net or out), they have to sprint around the opponent's field.
  • Duration of the exercise:
    • 5-10 minutes.

This exercise trains the split step.

  • Players line up behind the back line.
  • Trainer or player stands at the net.
  • One by one the players walk in from the back line.
  • When the trainer hits the ball, the player makes a split step.
  • Then he gets the ball on a random spot next to or in front of him.
  • Player passes back and retrieves ball if necessary.
  • After that the player closes in at the back.


  • Trainer with ball carrier at position 5/6.
  • Players at 5 and other field also at 5 with 2 reserves.


  • Trainer throws up the ball and the player hits that ball to position 5 on the other field.
  • Player there passes the ball and the attacker tries to catch the ball.
  • Passer joins behind with "attackers" and reserve becomes passer.
  • "Attacker" becomes reserve.
