Volleyball drills for defense / passing / digging / diving / reception
- Making trios
- The trios start working under the supervision of a trainer.
- The trainer always plays the ball
- The threesome must play the ball back to the trainer in 3 moves
- Reasonably high tempo
- Making trios
- Using the bouncer
- Per field 1 trio
- At the "work field" the ball is brought into the field via the bouncer
- Play the ball over the net in 3 steps
- Players walk under the net and take the place of the team there.
- The team that stands there defends and catches the ball
- Preferably in the 2nd contact.
- Hand in the ball and join the team
- Make trios
- Two players stand opposite each other and one player stands in the middle
- Player with ball starts with a short ball to the middle.
- Player in the middle plays back the bra and this ball is attacked by the 3rd player.
- This player passes the ball short to the middle, where the 1st player gives a setup.
- Trio in the pass with Sv on 2
- 1 server and 1 block on 2 and 3
- Service on passers
- Pass-set-up attack on 4
- Server defending on 5
- Coach stands in the middle, right at the net.
- Three players are standing in the field.
- Trainer throws/plays the ball to the players.
- It does not matter how they do it, but the ball must get to the trainer.
- Trainer may not take more than one step to get the ball.
- The ball can also be played to the trainer in two or three times.
- When there are 7 or more players the same thing can be done at the other side, but then instead of a trainer there is a player at the net.
- It is important to make sure that the ball is passed to the trainer.
- If there are extra players, someone can stand in the queue.
- If the ball falls to the ground, the substitute will take that spot. (In the case of a large difference in level of play the substitution can be made as well).
- Both sides serve at the same time (or as much as possible at the same time); the defender makes the pass to position  and at position  the ball is caught.
- The players run along the blue lines.
- With larger teams, players can be added in the waiting room.
- With more than 10 players the speed of the exercise is lost.
- Serves pass well.
- Therefore, there MUST be straight serving, but the server must want to score.
- The passer will not be trained properly if during the training he only gets to play easy balls.
- Of course, the serving pressure can be increased during the training.
- The purpose of the exercise is to train the defender A in his reaction ability as well as to work together in handling the ball.
- Important for this exercise:
- EVERYTHING is touche!
- The ball that is played/tossed by the trainer (high and far; not hit!) is allowed to come well outside the lines, because the ball must be handled as if it jumped off the block.
- A. stands with his back to the net and concentrates on the defenders B/C.
- If the ball is played by T/Sv. then either B or C demands the ball ("LOS!") and moves to play the ball.
- A. sprints after B/C and offers himself vocally ("HERE!").
- B/C must be able to hear where A is before playing the ball.
- B/C plays the ball high to A and A plays the ball well inside the 3-metre box. T./Sv. makes the catch.
- If there are 8 or more players, this exercise can be done at both ends; if there are less than 8 players, it is played at one end and B/C rotate with players waiting outside the lines.
- In that case, work at a high tempo so that nobody stands still for too long.
- A. changes after 5 or 10 balls; every player takes the position A. twice.
- NOTE: The exercise goes at a high tempo!
- When A. has handled the ball, the next ball follows immediately.
- It is up to the player turning in the ball to get in position in time!
- Place a basket on a spot of your choice within the 3-meter section.
- The second ball must touch the basket (top) or go through the basket.
- 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).
- Serve from p1 on 2 or 3 players. (p1, p6)
- Sv on p2/3.
- Attacker on P4B opposite block P2A.
- Libero on P5A and defender on P6B.
- Process service pass into attack on 4.
- If score, serve again. (max 2x)
- If defended, pass to OH and attack again.
- Passer becomes attacker, attacker becomes block, then defender, then server.
- Server goes to backup passer.
