Volleyball drills for all skills


Two groups facing each other along the net. The ball is passed from one group to the other. After playing you go under the net around a pawn and join the other group. Alternate with running, heels buttocks, knee lifts, side connection pass, cross pass, hop relaxed, hop higher, shuffle left, right and left/right, sprint, roll or dive

team set-up

Trainer serves and after the ball is returned, throws a ball into the field.

After 3 balls turn around


Trainer (mid) and player on 4 at the net

Trainer throws the ball himself short behind the block or in the middle or throws the ball to 4. That player throws the ball

Defence has to solve it by sliding in well and/or standing short behind the block. SV stands behind and comes forward and gives set up to middle, left front or diagonal, who finishes the attack. Catcher puts ball back in basket.

Goal: - Defense on the right position. Who goes for which ball?

- Being able to quickly switch from defense to offense. Possible 1st tempo exercise in the middle of the attack.

and 3 x 3

Coach throws in the ball:

first pass (un-call) and catch

Overlap, 40X

pass underhand 40X

work in the back of the field: left-right, backline short ball (possible diving)


warm up 2 laps, half lap of knee lifts, half lap of heels/legs, side and sprint.

C throws the ball up- 1 comes in for attack- 7 passes the ball to COpublications: - Throwing in at a high pace - C throws high for outside attacker - C throws low for middle attacker




  • C throws in balls to 1 who brings a rally pass(RP) to position 3.
  • SV may leave when C hits the ball.
  • Sv has choice of 3 attackers.
  • Attackers pick up ball and close behind.

When there is a reasonable setup, the ball should always be hit, but if it cannot be hit because it is too low, for example, another solution must be found.

Pay special attention to the passer/runners and diagonals to adjust their run if the setup is not perfect. They have to make sure that they catch the ball as high as possible in front of their hitting shoulder.

Also make demands on the RP!!!

  • Where should it be placed?
  • How close to the net?

Only allow passing when a certain number of passes are good. If it is easily achieved, throw the ball in harder or increase the number of good passes.

Attackers have to make up for "mistakes" made by the SV. Too often the distributor is told to pass the ball this way or that, while the attacker makes no effort to correct the "mistake" with her run. Keep in mind that they will do everything possible to get the ball in front of the striker's shoulder, so that they can press the ball over the net. After that, they can discuss with the SV how they want to get the ball
