Volleyball drills for all skills

  • Put 6 hoops down, on the 6 positions. (P1 t/m 6).
  • Make 2 fair teams, easiest is from 4 players per team.
    • One person from each team starts in the hoop at position 1.
    • The rest of the team stands with a ball on the other side of the hoop, behind the back line and vice versa.
    • As soon as the trainer indicates it, both teams start serving on the hoops.
    • The person standing in the hoop tries to catch the service without stepping out of the hoop.
    • When a service is caught, the person who served the ball moves to position 2, to catch the ball in the hoop.
    • The person who was in position 1 goes to his own backline to serve.
  • The team that catches the ball first at position 6 is the winner.
  • Important is to concentrate on a good service every time.
  • The goal of this exercise is to tactically put away or hit the ball.
  • This by means of a tap ball on midmid, or a ball deep on position 1.
  • By using baskets you can create a 'constant' block, which eventually can be replaced by a real block.
  • The pawns at position 1 can best be replaced by a cupboard, over which the ball must fall, over the 'defender'.
    • The trainer hits a ball, or plays a ball in, which is first passed to the distributor,
    • the playmaker gives a set-up to the outside.
    • The attacker decides whether to try a short passed ball at midmid (where there is a hoop),
    • or looks for position 1 with a hit or a fast overhand ball.


  • Play fanatically in pairs
  • Make long series.
  • Is that going well?
    • Try to hit the ball quietly every now and then.
  • Coach throws from the net:
    • 3 players on the backline on their stomachs.
  • Trainer hits the ball,
  • 3 players stand up and trainer attacks/plays.
    • Nr. 1 of the trio defends,
    • No. 2 sets up and
    • No. 3 attacks
      • then next 3 team
  • One player is tagged.
  • When you are tagged, sit against the wall with one arm up. NOTE: legs in an angle of 90 degrees.
  • When someone sits on your lap (=toilet) and "pulls" on your arm, you are free again.
  • Change your ticker regularly.
