The team plays against the small team (in the diagram a pair) and must successfully complete a number of tasks in succession.

  • The large team must score from a service of the pair.
  • The coach serves a simple ball to the pair. The pair then builds up an attack. The large team must win this rally.
  • The coach serves a simple ball to the pair. The pair plays this ball over the net in one go. The larger team must win this rally.

If the large team loses a rally, it starts again from the first assignment. When all tasks have been successfully completed, the team rotates one place.

You can also do this exercise with two equal teams.
