Volleyball drills for all skills

  • 2 teams,
    • 1 with ball at the net,
    • 1 without ball on back line flat on belly.
  • Attacker hits ball, defender defends on 7meter line,
    • Then short ball on 3meter line.
  • Line up in the middle of the field.
  • 1 person walks to the net (midposition) and blocks,
  • sideways to set/outside and block there.
  • 1 person remains standing on each side, creating a two-man block.

An exercise for the attacker. The attacker has to be available for a second attack after a block.

First the middle attackers. At the net stand the playmaker (S) and a head blocker (1) ready to start blocking. Next to them stands the trainer (T) with a ball. Three defenders (4, 5 and 6) are standing at the back of the court.


  • The trainer hits the ball, and 1 and S block together.
  • During the block the trainer smashes the ball to 4, 5 or 6.
  • As soon as 1 is on the ground again after the block, 1 moves backwards for the attack run.
  • 4, 5 or 6 defend the ball.
  • S gives a setup to 1.
  • 1 smashes the ball
  • 1 retrieves the ball.
  • 2 takes the place of 1 (1,2 and 3 rotate).

Swap with the outside attackers on the outside position.

  • 1 playmaker
  • 1 "false-dead" in the other half
  • 1 attacker without ball
  • Rest with the ball in a row behind the attacker.
    • Number 1 with the ball throws to the distributor, who gives a set up and the attacker tries to score.
    • The shamode tries to pass the ball and catch it, if he succeeds, the attacker is "dead" and has to take over the place of the shamode who may now join the row
    • If the attacker scores he gets the ball himself and joins the back of the row


  • T throws the ball to A, B or C who attack in front.
  • The one who attacks runs behind the ball, the others slalom around the cones and then dive towards the back line
  • Meanwhile D, E and F are ready

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
