this exercise teaches the players to play 'smart'. Just over the net, or in the back in the corners 

explanation is for 6 players

  • line 1 of 3 players with ball behind trainer
  • rij 2 of 2 players to attack at left forward
  • player from line 1 pushes ball in hands trainer, and player immediately walks to reserve position sv
  • Trainer throws ball up to centre forward
  • Play SV from centre forward the ball overarm on right or left forward (as setup)
  • sv walks immediatelyafter playing the ball to the line of attackers
  • there are 5 hoops on the other field
    • 1 in all corners of the field and 1 in the middle of the field
  • player comes in play ball in hoop
  • if this works SV AND PLAYER a point
  • get own ball, join line servers
  • in this exercise it is important to immediately walk on after  the action

  • Is allowed 3x for yourself
  • No bonus points for 3x playing
  • serve normally
  • half field
  • antenna in middle of the net
  • end line at around 3 m
  • this exercise teaches them to:
    • play smart, short, etc
    • properly assess in and out

Split group in 3

Field 1)

  • Put a mat in every field randomly.
  • here is a group to serve on 2 sides. 
  • Serve on the mat. 
  • Then you follow the ball and join the line on the other side.
  • Who has hit the mat the most often?

Veld 2)

  • pairs with 1 ball.
  • 1 field full of hoops.
  • Player 1 is in a random hoop, and player 2 serves towards it.
  • If player 1 catches the ball without leaving the hoop, the hoop is for the pair.
  • Who has the most hoops in the end?
  • per hoop a point

Field 3)

  • 2 players, 1 catcher
  • The rest is going to serve.
  • You serve to score, and then you become player
  • Players have to try to play 1x and the other catch 
  • Player becomes catcher, and catcher is going to serve.
  • You score a point if the player cannot catch the ball in 2x
  • 2 players, each have their own ball
  • 1 of 2 players is the boss, the other follower (later reverse this)
  • You start simple and you can expand with various difficulties
  1. if the boss throws the ball with a bounce, the follower throws the ball on breast height to the bass
  2. if the boss throws the ball on breast height, the follower throws the ball with a bounce.
  3. More difficult: if the boss puts down the ball, the follower also puts down the ball, and both walk to the ball of the other, boss throws bounce or breast ball etc
  4. More difficult: if the boss throws the ball in a high arch, then:
    • the follower first throws his own ball in the air
    • catches the boss' ball
    • immediately throws it back
    • catches his own ball
  • after a while, change all bosses and followers
  • We play on the two outer fields
  • In the centre field is a cone in the middle of the field
  • on both sides of the net.
    • Players play a game in which the ball has to be played at once over the net
    • If you have played the ball, you skip sideways towards the cone, touch it, and join the back of the line.
      • if the group is larger than three, it can be expanded with block and then backwards  to the cone)
    • If you can get the ball on the ground in the opponent's field close to the side line (trainers decide whether it is close enough), the opponents have to walk around their opponent's field.
  • Divide the group in two
  • We use two halve fields per group.
  • Everybody gets a peg on his knee protector.
  • The idea is to collect as many pegs as possible by taking them from someone else.
  • The exercise is intended to sit low, which on the front feet, improve feet work, and get warm.
