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 gives the athletes
practice in using the knuckle technique and
playing the ball with one arm.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Athletes or coach should mark out a smaller
court, which would normally be short/wide.
Athletes play out a game beginning with a
underhand serve but in this drill the athletes
are only allowed to contact the ball with one
hand / arm.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Have the athletes only use their non-
dominant arm.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Athletes should be reminded that despite hustling to
the ball but they need to keep their upper body
relaxed.
2 For athletes just learning to knuckle, they need to be
reminded to tense the wrist and fingers in order to
transfer the force of the ball down into the arm –
otherwise they can find the knuckle painful.
