  • 1 duo has the ball


  • 1 duo serves
  • The other duo passes the ball

Passing exercises:

  1. In a group of 5 players, the ball should be played to the setter at position 2, who then sets the ball to position 3 set. The catcher catches the ball.
  2. Play 2 against 2 with a net in between, where all passes must be underhanded and the ball must be passed between them at least once.
  3. Play out a rally: the trainer throws the ball on and the group handles the ball and plays out the rally.
Quality is important in every exercise, including movement after the action. The passer must move with the ball, the setter must move with the ball after the set, and so on.
