Volleyball drills for setting / overarm technique

  • A and A1 play their ball to SV1 and SV2 at the same time.
  • SV high ball.
  • SV1 & 2 exchange places + pas s to the corner, where A & A1 attack.
  • SV, Block on attack from A & A1.

Intention is to load the playmakers. Pass to position 4.

  • Players start on the three-metre line in pairs facing each other.
  • One player has the ball.
  • At 6 meters from the net there is a cone behind each player.
  • Players do a control key and then pass the ball over the net.
  • Then they run around the cone behind them.
  • The same, but after passing the ball they dive to the cone and get ready again.
  • Player does a control key, turns around and keys the ball backwards over the net.
  • Then he does a block and returns to his home position.
  • Per trio.
  • Player A does the control key and plays the ball over the net.
  • Player B does reception, C stands at the net and taps the ball high over, then he dives through B's legs and they switch places.
  • Four players stand in a square, play around and turn their bodies well in the direction you are playing to.
  • Play anti-clockwise, making sure the right foot is in front
  • Individual exercise to improve ball feeling with one hand.
  • Each player has 1 volleyball, mini volleyball, tennis ball, juggling ball (or for advanced players a non round object; a light plastic container or light bottle for example, but can be used with anything).
  • The goal of the players is to keep the ball in the air by hitting it as many times as possible with only one hand.
  • Have the players count how many times they can do this per the 2 minutes per task.
  • Possible assignments:
  • - Underhand lobsmash
  • - Over your head
  • - Hit your leg afterwards with the hand you played with
  • - Clap your hands after touching them
  • - Lying down -> sitting -> standing (and back)
  • - Raising your knee/heel
  • - Against the wall
  • - In pairs one player under, the other over the net=
    Be creative! =
  • Possible exercise for several people. (see image)
  • One or more in the middle, the rest around it.
  • Setters play the ball somewhere around them, the rest have to make sure that the ball is returned to setters in X number of times.
  • Agree on how many times the ball can be played.
  • Exercise stimulates:
  • - Communication
  • - Reflexes
  • - Ball sense

  • Two teams on both sides.
  • After every well played ball, turn in three.
  • Pass obliquely if you don't have a complete team.

Side a: formationSide
b: someone position 6 - position 5 and position 1

: Side a gets every ball against and tries to score from this situation

  • First ball: serve side b
  • Second ball: freeball coming from side b (side b builds up and tries to pass "difficult" freeball)
  • Third ball: attack position 6
  • Third ball: attack position 1

  • Side a is not allowed to place the ball in the 3m line at side b, everything behind the 3.
  • But side b is allowed to attack in the 3m line.
  • Let's see how easy it goes.

  • Pairs.
  • Opposite each other
  • Nr1 with the ball, nr 2 with the hoop.
  • Nr1 has the ball, and throws the bowl through the hoop of nr2.
  • Nr 2 holds the hoop above his head.
  • After 10 balls change.
  • Expand.
    • Throw up the ball for yourself and play above your head.
    • Throw 1 ball for yourself and then overhead through the hoop.
    • Play backwards
  • Goal: To be able to play a thrown ball overhand over the net, preferably placed on the board.
  • Trainer throws the ball, player plays the ball overhand over the net onto the mat.
    • Use one mat and move it around the field regularly.
  • Two, one ball.
  • One of you lies down on the ground and the other holds the ball above her head.
  • Drop the ball and play straight up again. Repeat this 10 times and then change.
  • Extension: let the players roll on the ground.
  • Now change after 6 times.
