volleyball drills for Attack / smash / spike / hitting
- When delivering a freeball we want to disrupt the opponents offence as much as possible.
- We can also use the freeball to take out an offensive attacker by pulling them close to the net or making them take the first contact.
- Dump zones are meant to target the setter or setter transition area and to pull an outside hitter off of their approach.
- If there is time, the player passing the ball should look at the opponents side of the net to determine where to place the ball - D1, D2, D3, D4
- Teammates not involved in the play should be:
- Ready to defend the freeball
- Looking at the opponents transition or positioning on the court
- Communicating to the player passing the ball on where to put the ball - 1, 2, 3, 4
- The trainer throws in the ball to the setter or player B,
- Player B passes to either player A or player C
- They just play over or attack which may choose.
- Players EDF slide as taught and defend that ball and the setter runs into the one who has not defended the cone and goes directly to his home position and the reception player goes directly to his home position then gives the setter a pass and if there can be attacked nice and in the field then they get a point after 10 points slide.
- A to F,
- F to E,
- E to D,
- D to C,
- C to B and
- B to A.
- Everybody throw a ball up and catch at the highest point with a jump
- Smash ball against the wall. Think of movement, cross, and wrist movement.
- Throw ball up, smash against the wall. try to hit at highest point, think of wrist
- Stand on the back line, throw the ball up and try to smash the ball over the net through the ground. try to hit the ball at the highest point.
- Stand on the back line, throw the ball up, jump, and try to smash the ball over the net through the ground.

Goal : develop game insight for attack
- A1 plays the ball to SV.
- Sv set-up to pos.4 where A attacks.
- At the moment A attacks, A1 plays a second ball to SV.
- B & B1 take care of the block. (B1 always starts from pos.3), L defense.
- Second attack of A. place ball. L stands on a mat. Where L is not standing should be played to.
We try to grow into a match form. Block gets points when attack can be stopped. Attack when scored or ball on the mat. Defender when defended.
Organization: 6 players per field
- 2 play the serve, each on either side of the grid, at position 1
- Serve to 5 or 6, set up and pass ball to server
- Server defends to position 6,
- it performs the first contact
- and the previous attacker set the ball to position 2
- the defence player
- As long as there are 2 balls, continue, if there is 1 case, go for the point.
Variant: The defender is checked whether the defender is short or deep, short ball is pokey, deep ball is technical ball.
Goal: Libero training and defense
- T plays in tempo the balls to SV.
- SV set-up (2nd tempo) to A (position 3) --> targeted attack to position 1 or to B (position 4) --> targeted attack to position 6.
- L starts from pos 6 + defense to SV2
Extension 1 : After defense from L to SV, set-up to position 4 where C attacks (aimed)
Extension 2 : L2 defended attack from C, C is going to catch ball.
Purpose: peripheral view.
- C plays the ball to L.
- L plays the ball to pos 3/2 --> SV2
- Meanwhile, B3 moves to pos 2 or 4. (draw. to 2)
- SV2 setup to the pos. where there is only one block.
- C goes blocking
- A attacks.
- T plays ball to SV1
- SV1 setup to attacker where there are two blocks.
Extension : field defense.
Goal of the exercise is, the playmaker must try to make sure that on the other side of the net a double block can not be formed.
- T plays the balls at a high pace towards pos. 3.
- SV walks in and gives set-up for -or backwards to fool the block.
- B tries to come to a drawbar block on attack.
- SV passes around T after set-up.
- SV1 & 2 switch positions after each set-up.
- Add field defense. (Liberos)
- B's play ball high back over to attacker passing towards pos 3/2
- Exercise starts again from pass attacker.
- The trainer randomly plays 1 or 2.
- From there, a set up to the other (1 or 2) is given for attacking.
- Depending on where the attack happens, 6 players on the other side of the net take the correct positions.
- Blocking, defending, and play over the net to me.
- High tempo.
- If the ball is not defended, throw it to my side of the net so that we can continue.
- There are 2 lines with persons on the end line and 2 attackers on the 3m line at both sides.
- The player right back walks to the middle of the field and gets a ball thrown by the player left back.
- The player gives a set up to the attacker on the 3m line.
- This attacker tries to attack the ball over the net to the best of his abilities.
- This exercise stimulates a not-perfect set up given from the back field.
- The goal is that the attacker is still able to play the ball over the net with some pressure.
- The players are in a line at position 1.
- The first makes a jump service (without ball), then runs diagonally to the net (position 4).
- Here, he/she makes a block, shuffles backwards to the 3m line, and attacks.
- Then, he/she shuffles to the middle and does the same.
- Keeps shuffling to the right and does the same here.
- Makes a dive to position 1.
