Ad
  • Bunch of two balls
  • one sits on his knees on the ground the other goes from left to right
  • after a while change
  • Both sides set up a team, normal game line-up.
  • Trainer throws ball into the backfield, team defends and builds up attack, opponent idem, ball is introduced by trainer where mistake is made.
  • Quick switching, lasting rallies and no delays as a result of service.
  • Regularly turn at the indication of the coach.
Ad

Trainer stands with ball box at the net, position 2/3, players stand at position 1, 5 and 6 for defense.

Trainer throws ball to players:

  • If ball at position 1, players of position 1 and 6 exchange after playing back ball
  • If ball at position 6, players remain standing
  • If ball at position 5, players of position 5 and 6 clear after playing back ball


  • As long as the passing remains good at 2/3, the coach continues to pass the ball.
  • Players not participating stand around the field and make sure the ball pit stays filled.
  • Feet at shoulder width
  • hands and arms point outwards start in a good starting position
  • bend the knees most of the power comes from there
  • body and feet point to the direction of play
  • arms remain stretched next to each other and are brought together just before the ball
  • the contact area is the forearms


  • Make groups of 3,
    • One player stands at the back line with the ball to serve,
    • the other two players move to the other side of the net.
  • The first player is going to serve, the other two are going to defend and call.
  • The player not defending runs forward and catches the ball.
  • It is rolled to the player who defended and the player who caught goes under the net to the player who saved.
  • It goes on like this all the time.
  • Building up with a pass and possibly attacking.
  • If the ball falls between the players or falls without being called, as punishment sit-ups or pumps.
  • 5 (or minus 4) players per side of the field, with 1 ball.
  • 4 players stand in the field and 1 player stands at the back line with the ball.
  • The 4 players in the field are lined up and the player at the back line of the other side is going to pass the ball over the net (overhand or underhand does not matter for this exercise, but the ball must be over the net!)
  • The players are going to defend this ball to the player who gives the pass (this one is run in from position 1).
  • This player catches the ball above his head and gives a high pass.
  • The ball is caught at the net (no attacking).
  • The ball then goes to the server.
  • The same exercise is done but now with the other side of the court. After this it is back to the first side to serve.
  • So there is one place rotated.
    • After a while the same exercise can be done with an attack (key over the net) where it is important that when the attack is done over the net player 1 and 3 exchange places!!!!!!!
Ad
  • The team is divided into 2 groups (4 according to the amount of players).
  • team 1 = storage team
  • team 2 = catch team
  • Team 1 serves 1 for 1.
  • They start close to the net and when they succeed they can move further and further away.
  • Team 2 forms a line on the opposite side behind the back line.
  • When player 1 of team 1 serves, player 1 of team 2 comes in the field to catch the ball.
  • He catches the ball and walks outside the square to team 1 to serve and joins the back of the line.
  • The server walks outside the square to team 2 to catch the ball and joins the back of the line.
  • There are 6 players standing with their backs to the net, three on each side.
    • A stands on the back line,
    • the first player throws the ball
    • and it is caught by A and thrown back.
  • 2nd player throws a short ball,
    • A walks forward and catches the ball and throws it back.
  • 3rd player throws a deep ball,
    • A moves backwards (facing the net) and catches the ball and throws it back.
    • Catches the ball and throws it back.
    • A walks to the other side of the net
    • where he stands in front of player 4,
    • Player 4 throws a short ball,
    • A catches and throws back.
  • Player 5 throws a deep ball,
    • A moves backwards (facing the net) catches the ball and throws it back.
  • Player 6 throws a short ball,
    • A moves forward (facing the net) catches the ball and throws it back.
  • Passing.
Ad
  • Two pairs are made.
  • The players face each other. Player with ball has his back against the net, player without belly is in the middle of the square.
  • Player with ball knocks on the ball, at this moment the player at the back stands up quickly because the ball is thrown into the field and must be caught overhand or underhand.
  • The ball is thrown back to the player at the net in an arc underhand/overhand and starts over.
  • We do this 5 times each.
