Volleyball drills for all skills

  • Place 3 pawns around a player.
    • 1 to the left, 1 to the right and 1 behind (working player)
  • Another player, with the ball, is going to indicate to which pawn the working player has to move (good posture = hands loose in front of the body).
  • At an unexpected moment, the player with the ball throws the ball (preferably not too easy) and the intention is that the working player defends the ball.
  • Repeat this a few times and then change players.
  • 2 teams
  • play the ball 3x and then throw it over
  • when you have played the ball tap the back line

1) Short / deep ball --> back player plays back underhand (20x then change) 2)
