ONE ON ONE
(beginner)
EQUIPMENT:
Ideal: 3-10 balls
Minimum: 3 balls
PARTICIPANTS:
Ideal: 2 athletes + coach assisting
Maximum: 5 athletes per side + coach observing
Minimum: 1 athlete + coach assisting
DRILL OBJECTIVE
This is a good passing drill for beginners as it
reinforces the idea that in beach volleyball it
is beneficial to keep the pass ‘smaller’ and
‘closer’ than you would in the indoor game.
The athletes also get high repetitions on the
ball.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Coach or athlete serves (or throws) the ball
at a passer on the other side of the net.
The athlete who is passing the ball aims to
catch their own ball.
If there are 2 athletes they should start in
normal passing position and the non-passer
can catch the ball passed by their partner.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Serve or toss to left or right of passer
or short and deep.
Server serves tougher or from further
back.
TEACHING POINTS:
1 Play the ball with straight arms and bend the knees
to get down low if necessary.
2 If possible the athlete should move to pass ball in
the centerline of their body.
3 The target of the pass is forward and slightly in
towards the court.
