DRILL OBJECTIVE
This objective of this drill is to loosen up the
body and raise body temperature in
preparation for more strenuous activity. It will
also increase the athlete’s awareness of how
current environmental conditions affect the
ball.
As well as serving you can add any particular
skill or movement pattern depending on your
focus
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Athlete serves and them jogs to the other
side of the net to serve again.
You can get the athlete to do any sort of
movement pattern you would like after each
serve.
If an athlete does not like to dive you could
force the athlete to serve and then run to a
certain corner of the court and dive on the
sand or if they block they could run to the net
to perform a certain block after each serve.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Jump serve rather than standing
serve.
Mark out spots on the court that
need to be served into.
Have the athlete serve 3 in a row
before they jog to the other side.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Athletes need to be reminded to take their time
during serving as after jogging to the serving spot
they will often rush their serve.
2 Encourage athletes to develop a routine, as this will
encourage consistency of serve.
3 The focus will change depending on the level of the
athlete. Beginners should focus on contact rather
that where the serve goes. More advanced athletes
should be focusing on a particular service area.
