  • relay. so which group finishes first?
    1. speed ladder
    2. under 'mat on benches
    3. 10x skipping rope

    6. 3x push-ups
    7. 10x jump with 2 legs on bench
    8. touch the next one
    9. ATTENTION: to smuggle is to start over with the part (not the whole course of course)
  • Place the hats in a square with about 5 m between them.
  • Two players are the catchers, the rest move inside the square.
  • The 2 scapegoats can tap the other players with the ball. The catchers are not allowed to walk with the ball.
  • By throwing over the ball the taggers can tap the other players.
  • If you are tagged or move outside the square, you are out and you belong to the taggers.
  • everyone dribbles down the hall
  • Left, right
  • Same, but now you can hit the ball away from someone else.
  • when you have lost the ball, throw it 2x into the basket
  • 3 teams
  • 1 at the net
  • other 2 on 2 sides in the back of the field
  • B throws ball at A
  • B passes under the net
  • A plays the ball UNDER HANDS to C
  • C plays the ball UNDER HAND to B
  • B catches the ball
  • B throws the ball to C
  • B passes under the net
  • C over the net to A


  • Exercise bra.
  • Pass over. 1 or 2x for yourself, then turn and play backwards.
  • Stand close together.
  • Is about control
  • players serve
  • trainers walk around with a ball and throw random balls to players.
  • as soon as a player has served he has to be ready to handle an eventual ball from a trainer.
  • this is only about being ready after the service.
  • start at the back line (or choose other lines)
  • tap 1 line to the front
  • back to the starting line -> touch it
  • 2 lines forward -> touch
  • 1 line back -> touch
  • 2 lines forward -> touch
  • etc


  • row of players with the trainer
  • The first one pushes the ball into the trainer's hands.
  • player stands in line left or right
  • players can play BH and/or OH
  • is about PLAY and DIRECTaction

If the exercise runs well:

  • then the receiver can play the ball bra along the net
  • Also run after your own ball again
  • Receiver catches ball and joins in line with trainer

Goal of the exercise is :

  • play the ball in the back
  • after servicxe directly to the front

  • 2 teams of 2
  • players may only stand and move in the front part of the field
    • unless you are serving: this is done from the back line.
    • server must walk to the front directly after service
  • the backfield does count, but you are not allowed to come as a player
  • so when the ball is played into the backfield, it counts as a point
    • in front of course also just
  • (maybe the field should not be cut in half, but the line should be moved backwards...)
