OFF THE GROUND GAME
(intermediate)

Minimum: 1 ball
PARTICIPANTS:
Ideal: Sets of 3 athletes + coach observing
Maximum: 8 athletes + coach observing
Minimum: 3 athletes + coach participating
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.
It is difficult to do this drill without laughter
ensuing so it is a great drill for relaxing
stressed athletes.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Normal scoring and format except each
athlete must contact the ball off the ground
on every contact.
What makes this warm-up game fun is that
the ball can be carried or 2 hit or tipped.
This warm-up is best suited for a group of 4
but would work for more if you used a ‘team
off - team on’ format or weakest link format if
the numbers were uneven.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Stipulate that there should be only 2
contacts on the ball on each side.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Timing of the jump – encourage athletes to make
contact on the ball on the way up and not jump too
early.
2 This is a less serious drill and as a result has less
focus on technique development.
