Divide "field" in 4 boxes. Exercise can be done with 2 persons at the same time, in which every player controls someone. The ball has to be played overarm, playing the ball high, and get to the other side like this.  ;

  • Divide the field in 4 boxes, playing the ball in every box at least 3 times.
  • Every player gets 2 turns, in which the best turn counts.
  • How far are you going to get


Directions for post holders

  1. Play up at least 3x per box: otherwise you cannot proceed to the next box
  2. The turn is over, when:
    1. the ball drops on the ground
    2. the player has both feet outside the box (1 foot outside the box is allowed!).
    3. the ball is not played high enough above the head (pay close attention!)
  3. Play at least 50 cm above the head.
  4. Every new turn start in the first box.
  5. The lines are part of the box (with regard to foot fouls outside the boxes).
Ad
  • The trainer randomly plays 1 or 2. 
  • From there, a set up to the other (1 or 2) is given for attacking. 
  • Depending on where the attack happens, 6 players on the other side of the net take the correct positions. 
  • Blocking, defending, and play over the net to me. 
  • High tempo. 
  • If the ball is not defended, throw it to my side of the net so that we can continue.

  • You are in pairs bsp;
  • The one has a tennis ball, and the other a cone. 
  • One is holding the cone in a triangle and tries to catch the tennis ball thrown by the other. 
  • The catcher then tries to push the ball to the thrower. 
  • You do this 10x and then change. 
  • Also pay attention to leg work


The hands are positioned like this:

  • The circle is the cone. 
  • The point of the cone has to point to the nose of the kid. 
  • You need little cones.overarm-technique-1

This exercise can also be done as a game against a group on the other field!

  • There is a line of kids with a ball at a cone in the back of the field and 1 kid in the other field 
  • Kid 1 is going to the net while playing overarm with the ball (if the ball is dropped, start over)
  • around 1m from the net, you play the ball overarm over the net to the kid (x) standing there
  • the kid standing there has to pass the ball and catch himself (walks with the ball to the line of children)
  • kid 1 goes underneath the net and takes the place of kid (x)
  • kid 2 now goes to net overarm playing and plays the ball to kid 1
  • etc. etc.


(variation or harder)

Ad
  • Line of players A  (+- 4 players) in the middle of the field with a ball
  • Player 1 is center forward, and is properly thrown to by first player from line A
  • Player 1 plays ball overarm in the basket
    • bend elbows
    • stretch elbows and point after ball 
  • Player at the basket catches and joins line A

With this exercise, younger children can practice overarm throwing.

  1. Give everybody a ball and have them show how they play overarm
  2. Is this not correct (for example, no pizza slice, or under the head), correct them, show how it has to be done.
  3. Have them throw against the wall, this provides lots of ball contact.
  4. Make pairs and have them throw over the net, to learn them to play high.
  5. Meanwhile, correct technique mistakes, but stay positive.
  6. Ask afterwards what they have learned, to make them think about it again.
Ad
  • every kid takes a ball and stands as close to the wall as possible. 
    • Try to play the ball against the wall as often (and as fast) as possible
  • per pair 1 ball. 
    • The one person (1) keeps the ball in front of him with stretched arms 
    • the other stands before him, 
    • bends the knees 
    • and tries to play the ball out of the hands of person 1
  • someone is one the chest with a hoop 
    • the sv receives the ball from the back field. 
    • Then play the ball overarm through the hoop
