DRILL OBJECTIVE
This objective of this drill is to raise body
temperature in preparation for more
strenuous activity and increase awareness of
how current conditions affect the ball.
Additionally this drill reinforces correct
defense techniques.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Drill starts with two athletes on either side of
the net with one athlete serving underhand
before moving into the court.
Athletes are attempting to win a point by
playing the ball over the net using the
forearm pass. The ball can only be contacted
once on each side of the net.
Initially however you could allow 2 touches,
as this makes the game slightly easier.
For athletes under 9 or 10 (or for beginners)
voleste should be played on a smaller court.
Any ball played overhead must be played
with both hands together and a one armed
play is only allowed below the waist.
If you have more than two teams you can
play with a ‘challenger’ and ‘points’ side.
If the team on the challenger side wins they
go to the ‘points’ side to receive the next
serve and chance to win a point.
To speed the game up a coach can initiate a
free-ball onto the ‘points’ side.
For additional Voleste ideas go to page 127.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Athletes need to drop to the ground
between each contact they make
with the ball.
Athletes can run around the net after
each play.
TEACHING POINTS
1
Athletes need to stay very low and be activated and
ready to move as the opposition is about to contact
the ball.
2
Athletes should be encouraged to watch the athlete
not the ball.
3
Athletes should be reminded that they should think
strategically about where they are placing the ball,
looking to play the ball away from the opposition.
A 6 x 6 meter court is ideal for beginners
