Volleyball drills for all skills

Ad

Make pairs.

1 with the ball at the net

Step 1: the other one gets down on his knees at 7 metres. then he lies down flat on his belly in the sand and makes a butterfly. now the range of the player has been determined.

Step 2: Same exercise but now from crouch and 1 step which increases the reach (again let the player determine the reach).

change after 15 balls

3 players stand ready. the other 3 take turns serving a ball over the net.
One player passes, one player sets, one player catches.
After finishing they rotate one place: catcher becomes server, server becomes passer.

Ad
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 1 of the 2 front rows calls LOS orI (agree on that)
  • this player passes the ball (in/to) the basket that is between position 2 and 3.
  • Ball in the basket is 2 points for the team, against the basket is 1 point.
  • Set a target for the team, for example 25 points.


It is possible to add a distributor and an attacker, provided the assignment runs well.
