Arrangement of material:

  • Mat against a wall
  • Player 1 (blue) near the mat
  • Other players (red), behind a certain line (depends on players)


Game flow:

  1. The players behind the line throw the ball to the mat
  2. Player 1 tries to keep the ball from the mat, he can do this with various movements.
    As soon as one of the players touches the mat, they may take a marker from Player 1.
    If Player 1 has no more marker disc, he loses and another player may take it. (number to choose, for example 5)

  • Players play two against two.
  • Each time the ball is over, they walk over to the other side of the net and join in behind.
  • The goal is to keep the ball in play as long as possible.
  • If a team makes a mistake, they have to dive to the other side.
  • Often the volleyball field is divided into six positions, you can also divide the field into nine sections of three by three meters.
  • This can be of value in coaching, service and (tactical) attack.
  • I let the group hold hands and then call a number below ten.
  • The group must then move as quickly as possible to the appropriate section.
  • Tip: After practicing this, I call out a number under ten at practice and have players point to the appropriate section on the court.

helium-stick


Supplies: A stick about 2.5 meters long and 1 to 2 cm thick.

  • The group gets the assignment to put the stick on the ground but it has to stay horizontal.
  • The group stands up straight (see drawing) and stretches both forefingers to the front at shoulder width and the upper and lower arms are at an angle of 90 degrees.
  • The trainer places the bar on the forefingers pointing forward.
  • From this position, the group should try to bring the bar down to the ground.
  • The bar must remain horizontal and not be raised or lowered on any side.
  • The bar should not be grabbed either!
  • Individual exercise to improve ball feeling with one hand.
  • Each player has 1 volleyball, mini volleyball, tennis ball, juggling ball (or for advanced players a non round object; a light plastic container or light bottle for example, but can be used with anything).
  • The goal of the players is to keep the ball in the air by hitting it as many times as possible with only one hand.
  • Have the players count how many times they can do this per the 2 minutes per task.
  • Possible assignments:
  • - Underhand lobsmash
  • - Over your head
  • - Hit your leg afterwards with the hand you played with
  • - Clap your hands after touching them
  • - Lying down -> sitting -> standing (and back)
  • - Raising your knee/heel
  • - Against the wall
  • - In pairs one player under, the other over the net=
    Be creative! =
  • Possible exercise for several people. (see image)
  • One or more in the middle, the rest around it.
  • Setters play the ball somewhere around them, the rest have to make sure that the ball is returned to setters in X number of times.
  • Agree on how many times the ball can be played.
  • Exercise stimulates:
