  • Three players line up to pass (numbers 3, 4 and 5)
  • Player 2 stands ready at the side of the same field of play. The other players stand ready with ball to serve on the other side.


  • Player 1 serves the ball (and then immediately walks to where player 2 is already standing).
  • A player passes the ball. Another player gives a setup. And the third player plays the ball over the net. All three players must play the ball, either a pass, or a setup, or an attack.
  • Once the ball is over the net, the players turn: 2 goes into the court (where 3 was first) 3 goes to mid-back, 4 goes to the spot of 5 and 5 goes the serving spot of the other half.
  • Then the next player can serve, on the drawing this is player 8. Etc.

Necessary:

  • 4 balls
  • 7-8 players
Ad
  • Players face each other at the net
  • They take turns to play a technical attack over the net.
  • Each time, they take a step backwards until the technical attack evolves into a serve.
  • If the ball goes awry : start again from the beginning.

Divide children into 2 different groups.
Children must save. In case of an error (outside, in the net, foot fault) the children must sit in the opposite field. Their own team can get the children free again by passing to them. If the children can catch the ball without moving from their spot, they can rejoin the game. A team loses when everyone is on the opposite side of the field.

This exercise is fun to do and gives a lot of fun and competition! Relays in general already create competition.

What this exercise also wants to mimic is the stress factor that a serve brings.


The players are divided into equal teams and lined up on the serving area of the same court. The first player of a team serves and retrieves his ball. After the next player has been tapped, this one serves and so on.

Only when the ball lands on 1 of the 4 mats the point is counted. It is not allowed to hit the same mat twice in a row. The team that hits the mat first, a multiple of 3 of the number of players in the team, wins.

It is important for a player to serve quickly, but it must also be flawless, otherwise the ball must be retrieved and served again!


If the teams are small, it is fun to have everyone serve two or three times.


Necessary:

  • A minimum of 6 players
  • As many balls as there are teams
  • Players divide on both back lines as two teams.
  • All have a ball.
  • Players one half take turns serving all.
  • On wrong service, all run to the net and make block jump.
  • Other team does the same.
  • Done when both teams have a mistake-free service series.


Variations:

  • serve with restrictions (one half or length (for 7m line))
  • only overhand
  • Attention:
    • Good service also under pressure
    • concentration
