2 balls, 3 players at the net 1,2,3

after 20 balls for SV 1 position change

  • s1 walks to the middle of the field
  • throws/plays the ball to s2 (SV)
  • SV gives setup to left front
    • this can also be catch and throw
  • S1 catches setup on the left front side
  • s3 runs back to midfield
  • and throws the ball to SV who gives setup (possibly catch and throw) to the right front.
  • S3 runs to the right front and catches the ball.
  • Pay attention: all movements of s1 and s3 are facing the net.
  • When the exercise is going well, you can start using more and more techniques. BH instead of throwing in etc
  • make a number of fields. e.g. 6 half fields
    • one plays 1-1
  • let everyone play the same match
    • eg 1-1 catch + bra
    • who has 2 points first
  • one outside field is field 1, other outside field is field 6
  • the winners advance 1 space towards field 6
  • the losers move 1 space towards field 1
  • winner on 6 remains standing
  • loser on 1 stays on

In this way you can differentiate nicely:

  • on field 5 and 6 come up with more difficult variations:
    • throwaway move with 3x BH or
    • OH + BH
    • After playing ball move over back line and back.
  • 3 teams
  • 1 at the net
  • other 2 on 2 sides in the back of the field
  • B throws ball at A
  • B passes under the net
  • A plays the ball UNDER HANDS to C
  • C plays the ball UNDER HAND to B
  • B catches the ball
  • B throws the ball to C
  • B passes under the net
  • C over the net to A
