Volleyball drills for block / net defense

Ad
  • row of attackers and 2 blockers at the other side at the net
  • Trainer throws the ball to the attacker from the side of the block.
  • Attacker hits ball into the block
  • Attacker gets the ball, connect behind your own line.
  • After 3 attacks change with the block.


Divide players in pairs with a net in between and a ball for each pair:

1. first throw and catch overhead (20x). After that bounce the ball under the net (20x).

2. Player 1 throws, 2 plays back overhead. Then runs to the backline to touch it and gets another ball. 15x then change.

3. Player 1 throws a ball from 2 meter line, player 2 is ready at the net to block. After the block sprint to the backline to tap the ball. 15x then change.

4. Player 1 (now standing in front of the net) throws a ball to player 2 on the backline. Player on backline passes back underhand, runs to the net, taps it and runs back to backline. 15x after that change.

5. finally play over together.

Block move without the ball

core-1-3

  • Blockers 1 and 2 start on pos. 2 and 4. Blocker 3 at pos. 3
    - Blocker 3 blocks at mid and moves to the right.
    - 3 and 1 form a 2-block on the right
    - blocker 1 turns and 3 takes his place at right front
    - blocker 4 goes to the net and blocks at mid and moves to the left
    - 2 and 4 form a 2 block on the left
  • Trainer holds up ball in the middle
  • Two players at position 2 and 4 hold up a ball. They have to block there
  • Two players throw a ball




  • 1 hits a ball to a passer at position 6 who passes to pos 2/3
  • player S gives a set-up to position 4, whereupon player 4 attacks straight ahead
  • player 2 stands in the starting position block and puts a block on the position where the ball goes over the net

core-2-1

  • player 4 retrieves his attacked ball and puts it in the ball pit
  • reserve becomes player 4
  • after 6 block jumps the blocker changes with player 1 and starts hitting.
  • player 1 moves to position 6
  • player position 6 becomes player position 4
  • player 4 starts blocking


Variations:

  • Each good block is a point
  • player penetrates from position 1 to position 2/3 and gives set-up
  • Team setup, when possible on two sides.
    • 1 side serves the team
    • team that receives service tries to score.
    • After scoring 3 times, rotate 1 position.

Team setup side A, remaining players side B in two rows at position 2 and 4. Attacking the team.

Emphasis is on proper blocking and defense. In defence make sure you are low, on your front feet and move until the ball is hit.

Note: what are your agreements in defence with regard to the block?
