Volleyball drills for block / net defense

Ad

Ball is played underhand to each other from the 4 meter line.
- After playing block on the middle
- move to the right and block
- under the net and block
- low defence back to the line

In this exercise, positions 4 and 7 are not occupied. On the right is sv.

Accent in this exercise:

- pass, block and sv

- Try to play through and vary attacking balls: smash, hole in the middle or play on the lines left and right (in the back is difficult because there is no miss-back who can defend the ball.

Ad

You divide your players into 2 teams.

* Each pair 1 ball

One of the pair is standing at the net to make a block.

The other player stands on the opposite side of the net with a ball. The player stands on the three-meter line and throws the ball just over the net.

The player standing on the three-meter line throws the ball just over the net.

* 20 balls and then switch tasks.

HEREAFTER

Blocking ball after attack

Each player remains standing for 10 blocks. The rest attack. For every ball you hit you get 1 point. It doesn't matter if you block the ball or not, but it has to be hit.

If it goes well: pay attention to the direction of your hands, block on the net (so no letter box in between).



Position 4 does not participate

SV swaps with 8 (so position 3 and 8 swap)

First with attack and after a number of balls switch positions (front / back).

You can also vary by giving different orders to attackers (where to attack and where to play the ball).

  • T1 plays to playmaker 1
  • set-up for 2-attack left
  • 1+2 blocks, then back for attack
  • T2 plays the ball to playmaker 3 who comes in from the right back
  • set-up to 2 at the centre or to 1 at right front
  • VARIATION: Idem: at left front

Ad

  • The trainer stands on a box at the other side of the net, and the players must try to block the ball one by one.
  • Step 1 is to explain when and why we block.
  • A big mistake during blocking is that players mostly look at the ball.
  • From the moment the ball leaves the distributor until it is hit by the attacker, they look at the ball.
  • However, most of the information can be obtained from the attacker.
  • Where is the ball going to be hit, how are the shoulders positioned?
  • The task is to teach the players to look at the attacker after they have seen which attacker is being served by the distributor.


In this exercise

  • The trainer stands behind the pair who are blocking.
  • The trainer throws the ball over the net and the attackers hit the ball.
  • This way the blocking players cannot follow the ball and have to look at the attacker.
  • Of course, the trainer can make further technical improvements here, such as
    • Position of the hands,
    • what to do after the block landing
    • and the way to land.
  • If the trainer wants to keep his or her hands free so that they can make technical improvements as the drill continues, either an attacker can throw the ball on one at a time, or the playmakers.


Variations are:

  1. only an outside block
  2. with a mid block
  3. also place attackers at the midposition


The important thing is that the players focuson the attacker.

Ad

  • Block with 2 teams,
  • One player on each side of the net.
  • One player plays a ball, just over the net.
  • The other must block it.
  • Pay attention to the position of the hands/fingers.
