Volleyball drills for warming-up


Divide the players into 2 teams. Each team stands on one side of the net.

  • On each side of the net there are a number of balls (depending on the size of the group you can add or subtract balls).
  • The idea is that the players, once the starting signal is given, throw as many balls as possible to the other side.
  • The team that has the most balls on its side of the net at the end of the game has lost.
  • Each player may only play one ball at a time to the other side!

Variations for playing over/under the net:

  • Roll with 2 arms
  • Roll with 1 arm
  • Overhead throw with 2 arms
  • Overhead throw with stroke arm
  • Overhand throw with non batting arm
  • Bounce with 2 arms in front of the net so that the ball flies over the net after the bounce
  • Bounce under the net (2 arms, later 1 arm, batting arm)
  • 5 balls per player: place 4 balls in a diamond with 1 ball in the middle of the diamond.
  • Players start behind their diamond and walk to the front,
  • there they tap the middle ball,
  • Then they move sideways (left or right) and tap the ball away.
  • Move back to the middle of the diamond and then move sideways to the other side + tap the ball away.
  • Then walk to the front, tap the ball away, back to the middle, backwards and tap the ball away.
  • And finally tap the ball away in the middle.
