Volleyball drills for all skills

  • Thick mat against the net

  • Make two teams.
  • One of each team goes to the other side. This one sits on his buttocks on position 1.
  • He serves, the ball must be caught.
  • After that move to position 2, 3, 4, 5.
  • The team that catches the ball first at position 5 has won.

Emphasis is on technique OH, so start with throwing the ball, if this goes well you can switch to key, attack or serve.

  2. R2 passes OH the ball to P2 (can be placed on a mat, where he/she is not allowed to get off) (comes into BH position)
  3. P2 passes BH to A2
  4. A2 passes to R1
  5. R1 passes OH the ball to P1 (may be placed on a mat, which he/she is not allowed to leave) (enters BH position)
  6. P1 passes BH to A1
  7. A1 plays to R2
  8. ....

  1. Trainer plays ball to passer
  2. Passer gives BH pass to attacker
  3. Attacker plays to the predetermined zones by means of a BH
