Volleyball drills for attack / smash / spike / hitting

  • Continued from Correction in attack pass - at lesser set up
  • Player falls on lesser set up- stays hanging/out of net/out of aerial.
  • set-up is given either on position 2 or 4
  • The defense adjusts its view to the angle of the attack.
  • phase 1: without blocking - defend the ball from being hit freely
  • phase 2: with blocking attention on the defense position - one of the attackers goes on the ball
  • one of the attackers is going to block on the middle position.
  • field is divided in 2 parts
  • on side 1 are 1 playmaker, the libero and the middle attackers
  • on side 2 are the other players
  • there are on each side 1 attacker and 1 blocker and a server.
  • depending on the number of players there is 1 passer or 2 passers.
  • the purpose of this exercise is to get in agreement with the distributor which ball you want to play.
  • With the middle players we will practice on the 'rise' balls and other variations such as the 'neck'.
  • 2 playmakers who alternately set uppen
  • 2 passers.
  • The person who does not pass attacks.
  • Communicate well whether the ball should go outside or back.
  • The rest stands behind the field and takes the place of the attacker.
  • extend with blocking
  • Control the ball 6 points in a row.
  • Formation with 6 players.
  • Trainer throws in the ball and the players have to finish 6 balls in a row.
  • Rotation - after each good ball you turn, otherwise you stay standing and the score is 0 again.
  • Extension: instead of throwing - save the rest of the team hard.

  • 2 rows behind the back line.
  • First 2 stand in the field.
  • Trainer brings in ball.
  • Pass left player towards position 2/3 then setup of right player.
  • The passer goes to attack on own side of the court.
  • The setupper does attack coverage.
  • The two teams rotate to form a new pair.
  • Extension: There are now 2 attackers at the net.
  • The rest do exactly the same as before.
  • Attackers come back from the net after the coach has brought in the ball.
  • The setup always goes to the opposite corner from the set-upper.
  • Pass from the right back, then left back setup on the right front.
  • Set-upper covers and takes the place of the attacker.
  • The passer remains standing and so does the non-offending player.
  • switching-from-defence-to-attack-2
  • C attacks diagonally on 3 and 4- 1 and 2 after the block attack
  • 3 and 4 defend, playmaker comes in
  • set-up to 1,2 or 3, attack to 3 defenders.
  • These defend for themselves and put the ball in the box.
  • C throws a ball to A or B
  • Set up a block on that side
  • Pass the ball over the block to the defence
  • Build up an attack on the middle
  • Change after 10 balls
  • Variation: attacking outside or behind


  • 3x trio
  • 2 threes play regular rally, also start with service.
  • on the other side 3 players handle the service, and deliberately play a high underhand ball.
  • team on the other side has to handle the ball by running well, the 2 outfielders have to go backwards, the passer calls loose, the midfielder calls high ball, and distributes the game.
  • The 2 outfield players have already made a few steps to the back to assist with the high ball, and are thus ready to attack.
  • 6 players on the opposite side of the field just play out the rally.
  • On this side of the field the players are lined up on 2 and 4
  • Trainer plays the ball up a few times in front of himself, so that the players do not know when it will come.
  • They have to look good to be able to time the ball.
  • Then the player attacks.
