Volleyball drills for block / net defense

Ad

Trainer (mid) and player on 4 at the net

Trainer throws the ball himself short behind the block or in the middle or throws the ball to 4. That player throws the ball

Defence has to solve it by sliding in well and/or standing short behind the block. SV stands behind and comes forward and gives set up to middle, left front or diagonal, who finishes the attack. Catcher puts ball back in basket.

Goal: - Defense on the right position. Who goes for which ball?

- Being able to quickly switch from defense to offense. Possible 1st tempo exercise in the middle of the attack.


1 sv stands on sv place in the field with the trainer and the other sv stands rv on the field with the rest of the players.

Accent is set up, block on outside and play smart.

If big team does a good attack then they get a point. If the ball falls on the ground or doesn't come over the net the other two players get two points. When BH is over the net each player gets 1 point. Coach throws the ball over the net 6 times (so you can get 12 points). After that change positions.

blocking-1
- 1 blocks first at the center and then at the front left
- after blocking, turns around and defends back attack from 3
- then defends (in dive) short ball from 5
- 2 is next
Turn over: - 1 to short ball
- 3 to blocking
- 5 to attack


Variation:

two defenders position 1 2.

1 blocks turns around gets a hit ball from position 4.



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.

Defending behind

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).
