Volleyball drills for block / net defense

Ad

Block and move

- the ball is played BH or OH to each other from the 3 meter line - after playing block on the middle and then block on the right (alternate to the left) - back to the row 
In case of a big group: block together at mid and then together to the left on the right.                              1st blocker determines the direction

block-and-move-1

This exercise starts reasonably simple and is then gradually expanded (can be done in 1 training session or spread over several sessions). An exercise in which everyone must defend, set and attack.
It is a long piece of text, but it is easier than the length of the text suggests. Just do it!

Requirements:
  • at least 2 ballsminimum
  • 8 players (preferably an even number)


Part 1





all-aspects
It starts with two players at the net (1 and 2), two players in the backfield (3 and 4) and the rest behind the backline. The trainer stands at the net in the middle position with two balls.
  • The trainer throws or hits the ball towards player 3 (1
  • ). Player
  • 3 passes the ball to the middle of the field about on the 3 meter line (2).
  • Player 4 runs in and gives a setup to the left front (3
  • ).
  • Player 1 catches the ball, throws the ball in the ballcarrier and runs to the backline and connects with the back.
Same again but in mirror image:
  • The trainer throws or punches the ball towards player 4. Player
  • 4 passes the ball to the middle of the field about on the 3 meter line.
  • Player 3 runs in and gives a setup to the right front.
  • Player 2 catches the ball, throws the ball in the ballcarrier and runs to the backline and connects with the back.
And then:
  • Player 3 goes to the left front and player 4 turns to the right front.
And then it starts all over again (decide how long to continue).
Once the players know the patterns, this exercise can be done at a fast pace.




Part 2

all-aspects

When part 1 is going well, we can move on to part 2. The big difference with part 1 is that the players at the net do not catch the ball, but make an attack. The attackers (players 1 and 2) start at the net!
  • The trainer throws or hits the ball towards player 3 (1
  • ). This is the moment that players 1 and 2 run backwards to make an attack.
  • Player 3 passes the ball to the middle of the field about on the 3 meter line (2
  • ).
  • Player 4 runs in and gives a setup to the left front (3
  • ).
  • Player 1 smashes the ball over the net (4
), picks it up and puts it in the ballcarrier of the trainer. Then player 1 runs to the backline and joins the backline. The same again but in mirror image:
  • The trainer throws or hits the ball towards player 4. Player
  • 4 passes the ball to the middle of the field about on the 3 meter line.
  • Player 3 runs in and gives a setup to the right front.
  • Player 2 smashes the ball over the net, picks it up and puts it in the ballcarrier of the trainer. Then player 2 runs to the backline and joins the backline.
And then:
  • Player 3 goes to the left front and player 4 turns to the right front.
And then it starts all over again (decide for yourself how long you want to continue).

Part 3

all-aspects

You can choose whether you want to continue with part 4 or part 3. In part 4 you play through on both sides, in part 3 you add blockers.

The exercise now starts with 6 players in the field. There are now two more blockers, who stand at the other side of the net.
  • The trainer throws or hits the ball towards player 5 (1
  • ). This is the moment that players 3 and 4 run backwards to make an attack.
  • Player 5 passes the ball to the middle of the field about on the 3 meter line (2
  • ).
  • Player 6 runs in and gives a setup to the left front (3
  • ).
  • Player 3 smashes the ball over the net (4
  • ).
  • Player 1 tries to block the smash.
The same again but in mirror image:
  • The trainer throws or hits the ball towards player 6. Player
  • 6 passes the ball to the middle of the field about on the 3 meter line.
  • Player 5 runs in and gives a setup to the right front.
  • Player 4 smashes the ball over the net. Player
  • 2 tries to block the smash.
And then:
  • Player 5 moves to the left front and player 6 turns to the right front.
  • Player 3 and 4 move to the blocking positions.
  • Player 1 and 2 get the ball in the ballcar and go to the backline.
And then it starts all over again (decide how long to continue).

Part 4











all-aspects
There are now 8 players in the field. The trainer only throws the first ball, then the game continues.
The same patterns as in the previous sections are executed: the players in the backfield take care of the pass and the setup. The players at the net smashem and block.
If there are more than 8 players, the game continues after, say, 10 attacks or so.
