DRILL OBJECTIVE
This objective of this drill is to raise body
temperature in preparation for more
strenuous activity and increase the athletes
awareness of how current conditions affect
the ball.
Additionally this drill develops hand eye
coordination and encourages good athletic
body position.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Athletes start with two balls.
The challenge is to juggle both balls by
throwing each ball up on either side of the
body.
Athletes start with one ball in both hands and
the other ball either between the legs or
under an arm.
While one ball is up in the air the athlete
reaches to the other ball in order to throw it
up before the initial ball has come down.
Ideally athletes should be catching and
throwing one ball up to the left side of the
body and the other to the right.
A two handed contact should be made on
each ball.
In order to make this drill even more
beneficial the athletes should try to keep the
arms straight as they catch and throw the
volleyballs.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Have athletes focus on something
while completing the drill.
Have athletes moving from sideline
to sideline during drill.
TEACHING POINTS
1. Arms should move from below the ball straight up
after catching, that way the ball goes straight up and
down, and not away from the body.
2.
Athletes need to be reminded that an athletic
position enables them move more effectively and
reach for balls that are away from the body.
