Volleyball drills for attack / smash / spike / hitting


3 triplets

  • 2 trios form base 6
  • 3rd trio on the other half of the pitch

intention is that the 6-team knows that an attack is played over 2 or 4.
6 team must anticipate

  • the midfielder must connect with the right/left forwards to make a block.
  • the remaining front player must move to the front of the net, the libeo (position 6) defends the block, Position 1 and 5 take position in the backfield.

After some attacking, 3 of them change position and 3 of them swap.

  • Alternate between anticipation 1 and 2.
  • Player must react correctly to attack and/or high ball.

points of interest:

  • call loose
  • move:
    • When attacking the block and the rest react in the back. Libero covers the block.
    • At high ball, anticipate to the back
  • We play 3 against 3 on a half field,
    • pass,
    • set-up
    • and attack (aimed and not hard),
  • After playing the ball, everyone rotates a position.
  • When the ball lands on the ground,
  • just bring it in by playing overhand, NOT serving.
  • If there are too many players, then 1 in the waiting room to come in for the pass.
  • 5 - 1 line-up,
    • 3 players on the serving side
    • and 5 players on the defensive side.
  • Trainer (Libero) defends on POS VI,
  • Passeur stands at POS I and then 3 attackers at POS II, III (mid) and IV.
  • 3 defenders on the other side and try to defend the ball, we play the rally on!
  • It is allowed to block.
  • The player behind the first attacker throws the ball to the distributor.
  • This player passes the ball on to the attacker at the net. (Free hit)
  • Extension:
    • 3 defenders at the other side of the field.
    • The attackers hit the defense.
    • They pass the ball to the defender's position.
      • If necessary, place a basket through which the ball must pass.

  1. 4 players in pass on 1
  2. the rest of the players stand on the other side of the net to catch and throw the ball
    1. first player throws the ball over
    2. set-up with pass to outfield player
    3. outfield player places the ball in the marked zones
  3. after each attack we rotate

Coach takes care of the set up at the 6.

  • The game starts with the libero throwing the ball in, then the rally is played out.
  • Variation: game starts with service of the other team.
  • If it goes well the trainer doesn't play anymore, midfielder is playmaker.

  • 1, 2 and 3 start from the backline 
  • sprints to the centre line and back to the backfield.
  • C plays a ball in the backfield 
  • 1, 2 and 3 build up an attack (pass, set-up and attack)
  • get the ball yourself.
  • next 3
