Volleyball drills for system

  • In the field there is a team formation.
  • After each service rally finish and turn around a spot, so everyone knows his place.
  • After that a game of 6 against 4.

Explaining how to play with 2 fixed divisors.

  • Explain clearly what the starting position is, where you are allowed to stand and where you are not.
  • Then start with one distributor at position 1-6-5 and one distributor at 2-3-4.
  • Play the game 3 against 6.
  • The 6 players play the whole circulation with 2 fixed distributors.
  • Attention: Changing distributors every time.

  • On one side of the net there are 6 players. (If they are having trouble with the set up, the trainer can take over this spot).
  • The remaining players stand on the other side of the net.
  • They start the game, by serving.
  • The 6 players build an attack. Pass/Set up/Smash.
  • Just play the point.
  • Full turn at the smash.
  • Communication by calling LOS, good pass.
  • The goal of this exercise is to tactically put away or hit the ball.
  • This by means of a tap ball on midmid, or a ball deep on position 1.
  • By using baskets you can create a 'constant' block, which eventually can be replaced by a real block.
  • The pawns at position 1 can best be replaced by a cupboard, over which the ball must fall, over the 'defender'.
    • The trainer hits a ball, or plays a ball in, which is first passed to the distributor,
    • the playmaker gives a set-up to the outside.
    • The attacker decides whether to try a short passed ball at midmid (where there is a hoop),
    • or looks for position 1 with a hit or a fast overhand ball.


Starting situation:

  • 2 players on 5
  • 3 players on 3
  • 3 players out of 4
    • Trainer throws the ball to 5, they pass to 3 in turn, they play BH Set Up to 4 attack.
    • Players on 4 retrieve the ball. After 6 attacks turn around and chase the ball.
    • Variation. SV starts from position 4 or 2, runs to 3 for the Set Up.
