Volleyball drills for all skills



Emphasis on flat tight hand, stretched arm and right leg in front. Give instructions for this during the training! Only these 3

Two teams with one ball and serve to each other calmly. The other team scores the ball for themselves.

3 pawns diagonally in the field. The children all have 1 ball and serve to the1st pawn closest to the net. If you get it right twice, you may go to the next pawn. Get the ball yourself! You are standing near the pawns so you can give them the right accents.

  • Backwards tag.
  • Split up the group and the catchers have to wear a ribbon.
  • And of course walk backwards, all the time and so do the taggers!

Jumping rope. 1 big rope and trainers turn.

  • Player in 1x jump and out again
  • Player in 3x jump and out again
  • Try to get 2 or 3 players in and jump 2x and then the front one goes out and someone comes in at the back.

2 teams at the wall. 1 serves and catches the ball then the other.

2 rows at the net. Distance not too big. Trainer stands on the other side. Player serves and tries to hit trainer. If he succeeds, the trainer has to push up 3 times. Player gets his own ball and joins the row again.

2 rows of children. Trainer throws the ball to the player and the player catches the ball via oh technique. So with arms extended and hands catching the ball. Trainer stands in front of the net and player in the back of the field. They throw the ball back to the trainer via oh technique and then touch the middle line and go under the net. There is a bench there which they walk over and then along the field back to the line.

Idem, only now they pass the ball back to the trainer. Pay attention to the outstretched arms and that they hit the ball low. Keep your knees and buttocks back. If they stand up straight, they hit the ball too high and it will hang or go over their head.

3 line up on the sideline and perform task.

  • Throw forward ball for yourself and catch oh, pay attention to stretched arms and hands catch the ball
  • Idem, only now catch bra. So above the head
  • Throwing the ball for yourself, hopscotch and catch oh, when you catch you stand still for a moment in balance
  • Idem now catch bra

2 teams play via overhead throw technique ball over the net. Catch the ball also overhead and stay like this for 2 counts. The person who threw the ball, taps the middle line quickly and gets ready again.

Now one person throws the ball via an overhand motion and the other immediately returns it. The one who plays overhand back, taps the center line.

Player with bucket above his court stands on the middle position. Trainer throws the ball and the player catches the ball and throws the ball directly into the bucket. Trainer stands next to player with bucket. Make sure it's a flowing movement!

Player throws up the ball for himself via underhand, technical throwing motion. Player has 1 leg in front, arms extended, slightly to the side of the body and throws up and catches.

Now player throws ball up the same way and then keys it and then catches.

2 rows. Players stand at the back of the field with ball. Trainers stand at the net. Player throws via underhand throw to trainer. Trainer fends off and then throws the ball to the same player. Player tests the ball directly back to the trainer and tries to get to the trainer faster than the ball.

Idem, only now the player doesn't hit back directly but hits for himself twice and catches the ball and joins the back of the line again.


On the backline there are 3 rows, each player has a ball, carry out the assignment:

Task 1: Roll the ball for yourself and if the fall is over a be[aalde line (which the trainer decides) then you may start to stop your ball.

Task 2: Throw the ball forward and catch it overhand. Really above your head with hands in a bowl. Move from A to B.

Task 3: The same, but now backwards.

Task 4: Throw up the ball, hopscotch and when you catch the ball, stand still for 5 seconds on 1 leg.
