DRILL OBJECTIVE
This game looks to develop shot play by
forcing athletes to play the ball on the
ground.
Additional to developing ball control it also
reinforces the strategy of taking a look at the
opposition prior to hitting.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Normal game rules apply except athletes are
not allowed to jump.
You could make up additional rules such as
double points for any ball that touches the
ground without being touched by a player to
encourage commitment to the ball.
Getting setting partners to call a specific shot
is an additional rule you can implement to
increase communication between partners.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
You can make the athletes move
up to each side of the net after the
ball has crossed the net.
You could make the athletes drop
down to the ground every time the
ball crosses the net.
TEACHING POINTS
1 The key is to take constant looks at the opposition
so you know where they are and then get your feet
under the ball so you are in a good position to play
any shot.
2 Athletes need to make sure that they keep a high
elbow when attacking the ball.
3 Athletes need to be reminded to be down and ready
to move prior to the shot being made as in this drill
athletes are unlikely to hit the ball directly at their
opposition.
