ball track = letters of the alphabet



  • Spread over 3m line.
    • Pass the ball in a zigzag and follow through. See picture
  • Later play underhand, only overhand.
    • One side of the net underhand, other side overhand.

  • all the children walk in a line behind each other,
  • the last one runs slalom between the people until he is the first.
  • Besides technique, communication is also important in volleyball.
  • And both aspects also apply to this exercise.
  • And reacting adequately to situations which go differently than normal.
  • In such an exercise you can see very well how different players are.


  • Three players line up to pass (numbers 3, 4 and 5)
  • Player 2 stands ready at the side of the same field of play. The other players stand ready with ball to serve on the other side.

  • Player 1 serves the ball (and then immediately walks to where player 2 is already standing).
  • A player passes the ball. Another player gives a setup. And the third player plays the ball over the net. All three players must play the ball, either a pass, or a setup, or an attack.
  • Once the ball is over the net, the players turn: 2 goes into the court (where 3 was first) 3 goes to mid-back, 4 goes to the spot of 5 and 5 goes the serving spot of the other half.
  • Then the next player can serve, on the drawing this is player 8. Etc.


  • 4 balls
  • 7-8 players

  • e.g. 4-4 they play in 3 contacts every time someone has played a ball that person runs to the back line and taps it and comes back so you play all the time
  • you can play this all over the field, inside the 3 meter line or outside the 3 meter line
  • Ladder walking at high speed. Can be extended with left-right stepping out of the ladder with one or two feet.
