(advanced)
EQUIPMENT:
Ideal: 2 or 3 balls
Minimum: 1 ball
PARTICIPANTS:
Ideal: 2 athletes + coach observing
Maximum: 6 athletes + coach observing
Minimum: 1 athlete + 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.
Additionally this drill is a good way to get the
competitive juices flowing at the start of
training.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
This drill could be done cooperatively with 2
or more athletes where they attempt to play
the ball (with only 1 touch) from square 1
through to square 8.
A competitive version would be to have
athletes playing ‘deep’ voleste in squares 1
and 2 or 3 and 4.
You could also mix it up so some athletes
playing deep and others are playing shallow.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Have athletes switching from
defending ‘short’ and ‘deep’ by
calling out one or the other as the
ball crosses the net.
TEACHING POINTS
1
Athletes need to stay very low and be activated and
ready to move as the opposition is about to contact
the ball.
2
Athletes should be encouraged to watch the athlete
playing the ball and not the ball itself.
3
Athletes should be reminded that they should think
strategically about where they are placing the ball,
looking to play the ball away from the opposition.
