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.
Additionally athletes get to practice the pass
set and spike in this warm up drill.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Athlete 1 starts with the ball at the net and
drives the ball towards athlete 2.
Athlete 2 digs the ball up to the middle of the
square made by all 4 athletes.
Athlete 3 then comes in and sets the ball to
the athlete directly in front of them (athlete 4)
and proceeds to quickly retreat (move back)
to get into a position to dig the ball up to the
middle of the court for the drill to continue.
Another way to describe this drill is that the
athletes at the net drive the ball at the
players in front of them and the athletes
away from the net alternate in setting,
retreating and digging.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
With additional athletes you can
challenge them to move around the
square after each play while keeping
the drill alive.
