    • 2 players on pos 2 with 1 ball, 1 on 4, 1 on 5 and 1 on 1
  • Execution
    :Ball is played from p2 BH to 4.
    On p4 the ball is hit technically to p1.
    This one defends the ball on 3m p3 and at that moment the player on p5 comes to play the ball BH to p2.
    And it starts all over again.



  • Running: from p2 to p4 to p5 to p1 and again to p2

  • Goal
  • 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).

responsiveness


  • 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!
  • Expansion:
    • 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.

float-3

  • Both sides serve at the same time (or as much as possible at the same time); the defender makes the pass to position [3] and at position [3] 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.
  • Goal
    • 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.
Ad
  • Coach stands in the middle 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 arrive at 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).
  • 1 player at position 2.
  • 1 player on position 3.
  • Coach or player on position 4.
  • Rest of the players in a line behind the back line at position 1.
  • Player at position 2 throws a deep ball.
  • Player passes back.
  • Player at position 3 throws a short ball inside the three meter line.
  • Player passes back ball.
  • Player/coach at position 4 hits or throws a deep ball.
  • Player passes it back and joins the back of the row again.
  • Don't forget to pass regularly!
Ad
