  • 4 at the back line and 4 at the net with the ball.
  • You pass on the left after the action you dive to the back line.
  • And then turn right.

  • Together in a round exercises of anouk that I will show.
  • line game everyone 3 times.
  • Divide the teams on both halves of the field.
  • Trainer throws in the ball and the teams play the ball across it to each other.
  • Every player who has played the ball taps the back line and comes back into the field.
  • Start with catching and throwing first and if that goes well you start playing for real (BH or OA)
  • OR
  • After each time playing over the net turn around
  • Make 2 teams of about 5 children.
  • Each team stands on one side of the field.
  • Place 5 balls on both 3meter lines.
  • When the trainer calls "GO!" everyone starts throwing the balls to the other side.
  • Who has the most balls in his field after 3 minutes, is lost.
  • Beware: the ball may only be thrown overhand, no key and no underhand play or throw, only overhand!
  • all players are equally matched.
  • 2x normal forward field up and down.
  • 2x forward to net, backward shuffle.
  • 4x sideways pass.
  • 2x cross pass
  • 3x run to net, block, turn around and dive back into the run.
Gather on sideline, then:
  • Across and back (2x)
  • Sideways to the other side and back (1x)
  • Cross pass to the other side and back (1)

  • Make threes
  • Each trio one ball.
  • Player in the middle runs an 8 each time. Each time this player gets in the middle, a ball is thrown:
    • A throws (or plays overhand) the ball to B (in the middle).
    • B plays the ball back to A underhand and then runs around A until he is in the middle again.
    • A meanwhile passes the ball overhead to C.
    • C plays the ball overhand back to B.
    • B passes the ball back to C underhand and then runs around C until he is in the middle again.
    • Etc.
  • After 2-3 minutes, the player in the middle changes.


  • To make it easier, player A and C can also have them throw instead of playing overhand. This can be an underhand throw/catch or an overhand throw/catch.
  • To practice standing still while playing/catching, you can also let player B throw and catch underhand.
  • 2 teams,
    • 1 with ball at the net,
    • 1 without ball on the backline flat on belly.
  • player at the net bounces the ball, player two catches/OH to the net player.
    • after that change positions
  • Two teams one ball
  • 1st players ready to stop the ball
  • 2nd players ready to roll the ball

    • Stops ball with foot 5x
    • Runs around and sits for the ball and lets ball roll between the legs 5x
