  • Kids keep the balloon up and have to listen to the trainer. If the trainer claps 1x, the kids have to hit the balloon with the right hand (left foot forward, other hand is pointing). Clapping 2x hit left hand (right foot forward, other hand pointing)
  • Kids are randomly walking over the field. When the trainer calls, they have to find a friend as fast as possible. They stand 4 steps away of each other, and calmly hit the balloon to each other (correct foot forward, pointing). This is how the kids change balloons. Balloon is caught overarm or underhand.
    • Idem but with regular ball. They do not hit straight, but to the ground (wrist hit). Catch overarm
      • Idem but pluck from the air and catch overarm
      • Idem but pluck from the air, control, and throw back to the other (kids each have their own ball)

Game to conclude the training. This exercise combines the two nice concluding exercises King of Court and Smashball. 

Played in pairs. In case of an even number of players, the pairs will remain the same, in case of an odd number two different team members are constantly in the field.

  • One pair begins in the "king's field" and the other team at the other side of the field, the other players are waiting at the side for their turn.
  • The team that begins on the other side of the field gets a ball served by the trainer, is played together three times to attack the "king's field"
  • The rally is played until a point is scored.
  • If the team on the other side scores a point, it takes the place of the team on the "king's field" and their place is taken by a new pair.
  • If the team on the "king's field" scores a point, both pairs remain, and the team on the "king's field" is thrown a (hard) ball by the trainer which is defended and then the rally is finished.
  • This offers an extra chance for the other team to get to the "king's field", while the team on the "king's field" can score an extra point.
  • If the team on the "king's field" scores this point again, the other side changes team, and the service begins again.

This game seems a bit hard for the pupils at first, but the teams that have payed this game always want it as concluding game..

Attack on outside on two fields. Players pay attention to their run and arms. Then attack on the middle.

attack-at-position-4

Player 1 is behind the end line and is reserve. Player 2 is in the middle of the field. Player 3 is on position 2-3. Player 4 is attacker left forward. Players 5-8 are in the other field left forward, all with a ball.
The first of the line (player 5 in this case) throws the ball to the middle of the other field. After throwing, he walks to the end line of the other field . 

  • Player 3 passes the ball to player 3 and follows his ball.
  • Player 3 gives a set up to left forward position.
  • Player 4 smashes the ball over the net, picks up the ball and join the back of the line.
  • And it starts at the beginning. The next ball can be thrown when the set up has been given.


You have to score!


serving

  • For this exercise, the field is divided in two lengthwise 
  • Four persons on one side, four on the other side.
  • 3 and 4 (1) serve. 
  • Player 2 passes the ball (2), 
  • player 1 gives a set up (3) and  
  • player 2 smashed the ball straight (4) so not diagonally.
  • If 1 and 2 score together, they change spots, so 2 will be playmaker, and player 1 is going to pass and attack.
  • if 1 and 3 DO NOT score, the attacker is going to serve, the playmaker is going to attack, and the server is going to be playmaker. The attacker is 'punished' because he did not score.


What is scoring here? Make clear agreements, for example a ball hit along the line.

Practice fanatically

Rally pass, underhand and overarm


  In the matches, these are the balls which are easily played over the net by the opponent. It is important to optimally use the chances offered. The pass has to be perfect and to achieve that requires a lot of practice. The warming up is very suited for this.
The adjacent drawing is divided in 3 phases, A, B, and C, but all are about the same pair.
At A, 1 has the ball and 2 is at the 3 meter line. 1 plays the ball (1) with an arch in the back field, and 3 moves to the back.
At B, 2 has arrived in the back field and plays the ball (2) back to 1, who is still at the net, and walks back to the 3 meter line. 1 plays the ball (3) again to the 3 meter line, in such a way that 2 can get under it
At C, 2 plays the ball (4) back to 1 again and moves to the back again, and plays the ball (5) in the back field again.
Pay attention that players always get behind the ball and that they are in balance when playing the ball. In the back field, the trajectory of the pass player 2 plays can be flatter, so the ball is a bit faster at 1. The short ball needs to be high, so the playmaker (in the match) has the time to get under the ball and deliver the perfect set up to score the point.
You can do the exercise overarm or underhand. In both exercises, you have to play overarm at the net.
Demand all balls to be perfect! These are the chances offered and you have to seize them
When passing overarm, pay attention to:
  • the ball is caught before and over the head
  • and that movement is right and no correction from the back is needed to play the ball before and above.
  • at the net, the ball is played more over the head to keep the ball at your own side of the net
When passing underhand, pay attention to:
  • the ball is played within the body
  • movement is right, and there is no correction by passing with the arms outside the body
  • in the back field, the arms can point a little more to the ground to give the ball more speed
  • at the net, arms parallel to the ground to play the ball up and that the ball remains above their own side during playing
  • warming-up-94
