Volleyball drills for attack / smash / spike / hitting

Ad
  • Training passes ball to the net.
  • Player attacks.

switching-from-defence-to-attack- C attacks diagonally on 3 and 4

- 1 and 2 after 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.

Ad
  • If volleyball players feel they are starting the attacking pass too early,
  • or the coach feels the attackers are coming too early, this is a good drill.


  • The playmaker is put down with a ball carrier.
  • He gets the assignment to play 5 or less times for himself.
  • The attackers do not know how many times this will happen, so they can only leave when the set-up is given, not before.
  • The attackers will have to come in more aggressively and will build up more speed and thus more height, provided they have a good brake pass.
  • If this goes well, the trainer can decide to move the playmaker closer to the attackers, so that the distance the set-upper has to travel is shortened.
  • This should make the attackers even more alert.
  • 2 groups 1 ball :
  • 3 meter attack with defense
  • 1 serve, pass to SV
  • SV set-up at 3 meter on one of the passers
    • idem other side
  • rally
  • serve from the side where the ball hit the ground

In today's exercise, the following techniques will be used: serving, attacking, passing and distributing. However, the emphasis is on the pass and the distribution. The players have to watch, think well and react adequately during this exercise.


pass-and-playThe diagram looks more complicated than the exercise is. The exercise goes as follows (I keep the numbering of the red numbers):

  • 1 player 3 serves
  • 2a one of the two playmakers runs to the position at the right front (the playmakers take turns)
  • 2b one of the two passers (in this case player 2) passes the ball to the right front side
  • 2c player 3 (who has just served) runs to the backline of the other half of the game
  • 3 the server gives a setup to the player who did NOT pass. A setup to the centre if player 1 has passed and a setup to the outside if player 2 has passed.
  • 4+5 the player who did not pass attacks (in this case player 1)
  • 6a the attacker retrieves his own batted ball and joins the back of the line of serves.
  • 6b the place where the attacker stood is taken by the first player in the row behind the court.

As soon as the ball is hit the next service is played.

Ad

Team A serves the ball to 1 of the players of team B.

Team B passes and attacks using a 3 meter attack.

If there is no attack, 2 hands must be played over the net in the direction of the shoulders. This is to keep the rally going.

attacking-from-the-middle-and-outside

  • Coach throws ball to defender
  • Defender passes to playmaker
  • sv gives set up to outside or middle
Ad
  • On both sides of the net an SV
  • Line up 2 rows to attack.
  • On one side of the net, the attack happens short-cut through the middle
  • On the other side, the SV does a backward setup and the right forward attacks.
  • Attacker retrieves ball and joins own line.


VARIANT: attacker retrieves ball and connects to the opposite side and performs middle attack.
