Volleyball drills for all skills

  • 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 to the playmaker, setup and attack straight ahead. Attacker retrieves his own ball.
  • The playmaker goes on the attack, Paschal becomes setupper, the attacker joins the shortest row.
  • If you did not have the ball, join the shortest line.
  • call-off-and-attack

- Form a circle of 3 to 5 players (possibly including the coach if the players are not yet able to pass well)

- Pass the ball as often as possible within the circle.

- A player may touch the ball a maximum of 2 times in a row, otherwise start the count again.

- If the ball touches the ground, also start the count again

  • 2 teams, each team has its own field
  • facing each other with a net in between.
  • The players serve each other from behind the back line.
  • If a player serves a ball wrong (in the net, out, etc.) he must lie down on the side of the other team.
  • A player may return if a teammate serves a ball to him.
  • if a whole team lies on the ground, the other team has won.


This exercise is fun to do and gives a lot of fun and competition! Relays in general already create competition.

What this exercise also wants to mimic is the stress factor that a serve brings.

The players are divided into equal teams and lined up on the serving area of the same court. The first player of a team serves and retrieves his ball. After the next player is tapped, this one serves, and so on.

It is important for a player to serve quickly, but it must also be flawless, otherwise the ball must be retrieved and served again!
