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 this drill allows athletes a chance
to practice passing, setting and soft drives in
a non-competitive environment.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
In this warm-up drill athletes are not trying to
beat each other but actually work together to
continue a rally.
Using a spare court rope (or simply marking
out the sand) the athletes should create two
small courts on either side of the net - in this
case the red line creates two small triangular
shaped courts. (but they could also be
squares)
The athletes then attempt to keep a rally
going where each athlete is allowed to touch
the ball 3 times.
Athletes should switch sides so they are
practicing shots from both left and right sides
of the court.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Allow only 2 touches on the ball.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Athletes should be in the athletic position at the time
of the 3
rd
contact make by the athlete on the other
side of the net.
2 Athletes should try not to face directly at the target
but face the direction of attack they will adopt during
a game and use the wrist to turn the ball.
3 Athletes should be reminded that in preparation to
dig the shot the best position to be in is at the
sideline so they are moving forward towards the ball.
