Volleyball drills for setting / overarm technique

Ad

ribbon-pass-2--1

  • Spread over 3m line.
    • Pass the ball in a zigzag and follow through. See picture
  • Later play underhand, only overhand.
    • One side of the net underhand, other side overhand.

  • With this exercise the players learn how to play 'smart'. just over the net or in the back corners.
  • The field is divided into two halves. On both halves there is a row of players.
  • On the other side of the net are hoops, on the places where normally no players stand.
  • The players throw the ball in front of themselves and play the ball overhand into the hoops. For every bale in the hoop they get one point, the team with the most points has won. (addition: the trainer plays the ball and the players play into the hoops).

The aim is to shift focus, so don't dwell on it for too long but be ready for the next action straight away.

  • Make 3 teams with 1 regular volleyball and 1 tennis ball.
  • The one with the tennisball is the lummel (player 2) and stands in the middle.
  • Player 1 plays the ball to the dummy, the dummy throws the tennis ball to player 1.
  • The dummy plays the ball to player 1 and player 1 throws the tennisball to the dummy again.
  • After this player 1 plays the ball to player 3, player 3 plays the ball to the lummel, and the lummel throws the tennisball to player 3.
  • to player 3. The dummy plays the ball to player 3 again and gets the tennisball back. etc...
  • requires concentration of the players and fast switching.
    • If you don't have tennisballs you can also use 2 balls.
  • 3 teams.
    • 1 is at the net,
    • 2 in the back and
    • 3 in the middle.
    • 1 plays bra to 2,
    • 2 plays bra to 3,
    • 3 plays bra back to 2 and then turns around,
    • 2 plays bra to 1,
    • 1 plays bra to 3 etc etc
    • Pay attention to this and after a while change the middle man.
  • Ditto,
    • Only now the middle man doesn't turn and we play the ball backwards.
    • So 1 plays to 2,
    • 2 plays backwards to 3 and
    • 3 plays the ball to 1,
    • 1 again to 2 etc. etc.
    • Pay special attention to the position of the middle man!
    • Again, pay attention to this.
