Volleyball drills for defense / passing / digging / diving / reception

Ad
  • players form pairs
  • 1 player stands ready to defend the ball, other player stands behind with a ball
  • at a moment the player in the back throws the ball with a small curve over ( left or right ) the player in front.
  • This player tries to get the ball up for the second bots ( fist under the ball or ducking ).
  • The intention is that players react to an unexpected situation.
  • Place 3 pawns around a player.
    • 1 to the left, 1 to the right and 1 behind (working player)
  • Another player, with the ball, is going to indicate to which pawn the working player has to move (good posture = hands loose in front of the body).
  • At an unexpected moment, the player with the ball throws the ball (preferably not too easy) and the intention is that the working player defends the ball.
  • Repeat this a few times and then change players.
Ad
  • Player T.A. from the net:
    • 3 teams on the back line on the belly
  • Player gives slap on ball, 3 players stand up and trainer attacks one of the trio defends, nr. 2 setup and nr. 3 attacks
    • then next 3 team
  • Andre side are 3 blockers.
  • Slide through per 3 team

Attacking at position 4, blocking at pos 2 on the other side (if there are enough players also blocking at pos 3), defending at pos 1 and 6. After defending, the ball is caught by the blocker.

Learning the pancake roll in 5 exercises:

1. dry practise, step-by-step (repeat 5 times) (
below describes a roll to the right; swap right/left for a roll to the left) - start position
underhand pass (sit low)
- step out one leg (right) to the side and bend the knee very deeply -
slide
(
right) hand over the ground diagonally right to the front (pancake)
- sink through until the right hip is on the ground -
swing
the legs
over the hips to the other side - during the swing
bend
the
stretched (left) leg and stretch the bent (right) leg - by the speed of the swing turn through
so that you come back in the underhand pass position







2. Get used to it (is also good to use as a warming-up exercise) -
start on the sideline facing the net -
roll to the other sideline
in three times
-
roll
back to the
first sideline
in three times
(or walk back if you want to learn the roll in one direction first)


3. gaining experience (repeat 5 times) -
pairs with 1 ball - thrower with
ball near the net, defender at 6 or 7 meter
- throw the ball, so that it lands on the ground 2 meters next to and 1 meter in front of the defender
- the defender tries to hit the ball with a pancake roll (the roll is first more important than hitting the ball)



4. get accuracy -
trio or quartet with 2 or 3 balls (1 defender, the rest is throwing) - the throwers
stand on LV, MV and possibly on RV, the defender stands on the sideline (LA)
- the LV throws the ball so that it lands on the ground 2 metres next to and 1 metre in front of the defender - the
defender tries to hit the ball with a pancake roll
- as soon as the defender has finished the roll, the MV throws the ball so that it lands on the ground 2 metres next to and 1 metre in front of the defender
- the defender tries to hit this ball with a pancake roll as well
- as soon as the defender has finished the roll, the LV throws the ball so that it lands on the ground 2 metres next to and 1 metre in front of the defender again - the defender tries to hit
this ball with a pancake roll as well - after 5 times the
players rotate through on position








5. roll in both directions -
trio with 2 balls (2 throwers, 1 defender) - the throwers
stand on LV and MV, the defender stands on the sideline (LA)
- the MV throws the ball so that it hits the ground on the right side, 2 metres next to and 1 metre in front of the defender
- the defender tries to hit the ball with a pancake roll to the right
- as soon as the defender has finished the roll, the LV throws the ball so that it lands on the ground on the left side at 2 metres next to and 1 metre in front of the defender - the
defender tries to hit this ball with a pancake roll to the left - after 5 times the players
turn around
in
position






















  • 4 at the back line and 4 at the net with the ball.

3 rounds

  • first round = throwing (freeball)
  • second round = technical hit (hit freeball) --> short ball can already be a dived ball
  • third round = hard hit --> short ball almost impossible to catch
