Volleyball drills for attack / smash / spike / hitting
- Trainer with ball carrier at position 5/6.
- Players at 5 and other field also at 5 with 2 reserves.
- Trainer throws up the ball and the player hits that ball to position 5 on the other field.
- Player there passes the ball and the attacker tries to catch the ball.
- Passer joins behind with "attackers" and reserve becomes passer.

AThe reserve on field A passes and attacks
- 2 trios, 1 on the service field and the other on the other side.
- Service, pass and attack on 3m (out of position).
- Defend and play with only 3m attacks.
- In case of more than one trio, rotate through.
- It is possible to have a reserve trio on each court.
- Ladder exercise.
- Sideways movement to between pos. 4 and 5, body turns towards attacker.
- Defence on attack.
- Variant ladder exercise:
- After defence, passer sets ball to pos 4 + attack.
- Pass can also go to blue player (attacker), white player then gets another free ball, on which she definitely gets the pass.
- After defence, the passer can play a move ball to either the white or the blue player, then pass to one of the two.
- Turn over:
- Defence => attack => ladder
- At least 2 reserve players on ladder and attack.
- In case of more players: add a block.
- 6 players per field.
- 2 on each side of the net in position 1.
- Pass to 5 or 6, build up and pass the ball to the server.
- The server defends to position 6, who executes the first contact, and the previous server sets the ball to position 2, the defence player.
- As long as there are 2 balls, keep going, if 1 is dropped, go for the point.
- Find out what the players can do.
- On field A 2 persons without the ball. 1 at the net and 1 at 3m. at position 4 and a SV at 2/3.
- Further on field A a row with ball on 6.
- On field B a defender on 6 and 5.
- Defending and (for now) catching and connecting on field A.
- Method of working:
- Player on 6 throws/plays the ball to SV.
- At the moment of set-up the player at 4 moves backwards at the net (a C-run) and attacks the passed ball.
- Both SV and player give attacking cover.
- The attacker takes the place of the passer.
- Later move attack to 3 and defenders to 1 and 5.
- To prevent miscommunication in the field by keeping appointments.
- Pass setup with 4 passers.
- Left hand rule everything that comes right in front and left of you is yours.
- In addition, the outside passers have the short balls that fall in the middle of the field.
- Trainer stands at the other side of the net and starts throwing balls at conflicting places.
- If this goes well, the trainer will hit the balls.
- On the place of the defender there is a catcher who will be relieved after 3 minutes.
- Part 2:
- There is a five-man line-up.
- So a playmaker, a center, a slide and 2 passers/runners.
- The playmaker comes from the right back.
- On the other side are 3 blockers and 1 defender.
- The coach serves to the fivesome.
- The playmaker of the fivesome is only allowed to pass to the attackers who are calling for the ball.(Goal: everyone asks for the ball)
- The rally is played out.
- The attack takes place on the position  at the net and  and  over the 3-meter.
- The libero always comes from position  to take over the Sv. (for instance because the playmaker in the rally took care of the pass) and to take care of the set-up.
- The 'pass' is introduced by the trainer at the height of the 3-meter at position .
- If the libero stays outside the 3-meter he may provide the set-up overhand, otherwise only underhand.
- Training 3-meter offense and defense.
- Handling hard balls by the defense.
- The exercise
- There are two teams facing each other.
- The teams are balanced in numbers as much as possible.
- The trainer introduces the first ball so that a back player can immediately (with pressure) execute a 3-meter attack, after that the rally is free.
- The team that wins the rally then receives the first ball from the trainer.
- If there are 8 players or less, only attacks from behind the 3-meter, with more players it can be chosen to place players at the net or to make it a King's Court exercise. (The losing side rotates out of the court; all attacks then continue to come from behind the 3-meter).
