DRILL OBJECTIVE
This drill is a good variation on the normal
game but is designed for situations where
there are more than 2 teams.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
This drill involves designating one side of the
court the ‘points’ side and the other the
‘challenger’ side.
Athletes partner up and serve to start the
rally from the ‘challenger’ side.
If the serving team wins the rally they move
across the net to the ‘points’ side where they
get the opportunity to earn a point.
If the team on the ‘points’ side wins the rally
they receive a point and stay on the ‘points’
side.
Depending on the focus of the drill rules
could stipulate that the receiving do or do not
get points for missed serves.
If missed serves do not count for points it will
make the job of any team on the ‘points’ side
more difficult.
Also rules could stipulate that teams either
do or do not gain points for moving through
to the ‘points’ side.
An additional option is to stipulate that the
team on the ‘points’ side is permitted 2 errors
before they are out.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Coach can drive a ball across to the
team on the ‘points side’ if they win
and they have to win the 2
nd
rally to
get a point.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Athletes need to consider the serving rules and alter
their strategy around it. If there is no penalty for
service errors then it is beneficial to take more risks.
Athlete serves the
ball and moves in to
play out the rally
