normal sized court)
One on one – two passes (two bumps or a bump and a spike)
One on one – three touches.
Two on two – one pass only on each side
Short / wide ‘voleste’ using a short / wide court.
Narrow / long ‘voleste’ using a narrow / long court
Cross court ‘voleste’ where the athletes play from one side of the court to the other.
Groups on each side of the net play against each other in pairs or as individuals to a certain
number of points. eg tall players on one side verses short players on the other.
First individual or team to a certain amount of points.
Individuals or team start on a certain number of points and loose points as they make errors.
A player who makes a mistake is off the court and gets replaced as per weakest link drill 8.2.
Return to old fashioned side out scoring for a change.
Have a number of items on both sides of the court and when one team wins a point they get to
take an item – when all items are gone from one side the game is over.
If one team is stronger then give them a point advantage.
First team to spell out a certain word wins.

young people to enjoy this great sport. Have a look on the link below to know more about the Cool Volley:
1 Athletes need to be reminded of the value of
getting into the athletic position and activating
prior to the opposition making their play – this
means not just getting down low but being ready
to move quickly to the ball.
2 Athletes must also learn that in a 1 on 1 situation
getting back to the middle of the court after
making a play will give them a better chance of
getting to the next ball as they are not leaving any
part of the court undefended.
3 Play the ball away from the opposition – make
them move – the more they move the more likely
that they are to make mistakes.
