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 dropping
off the net, digging balls and playing soft
shots.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Athletes play a standing shot game with no
jumping (as per drill 1.17) however as soon
as the ball crosses the net the team attacked
must run up to the net and get into position to
drop off, with one athlete on the left and one
on the right.
Both athletes then drop off the net as soon
as the opposing team sets the ball.
You could make this drill cooperative initially
then competitive after the ball crosses the net
3 times.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS

better simulate a situation whereby a

more difficult for the defenders and
force them to retreat quicker.

ball is hit.
2 Athletes need to keep eyes on the net when
dropping off.
3 Make sure athlete has foot closest to sideline
