NON PASSER MOVE
(beginner)
EQUIPMENT:
Ideal: 2-3 balls
Minimum: 1 ball between 3
PARTICIPANTS:
Ideal: 3 or 4 athletes + coach assisting
Maximum: 6 athletes + coach assisting
Minimum: 2 athletes + coach assisting
DRILL OBJECTIVE
Encourages beginner passers to pass
forward and non-passers to quickly initiate
the movement towards the setting position.
Additionally it reinforces the direction that the
ball should travel off the pass. (despite going
over the net)
DRILL DESCRIPTION
This drill is a very beginner drill that
encourages the passer to pass forward
(which is an important concept for beginners)
and the non-passer to respond quickly to the
fact that they are not passing and move
towards their partner.
The passers goal is to pass the ball over the
net and on to the sand (in the direction of the
person tossing the ball who is standing
centre middle) before the non-passer runs
through and touches the opposite pole.
(which is in the direction of the ideal setting
position)
It is important that the passers are unaware
of who will receive the serve and serves
should be deep in order to avoid the two
players banging into each other.
This is not a drill that should be used for
athletes that are beyond beginner status as
passing directly over the net should not be
encouraged.
This drill is most effective with younger
players that a still learning to anticipate plays
and don’t yet move through the sand quickly.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS:
Serve the middle of the court to
create additional confusion between
the two passers.
Serve a faster and lower serve to
give the non-passer less time to read
the play.
TEACHING POINTS
1 The athletes should make sure that they are moving
forward towards the ball to ensure it goes forward
which means that if the serve is deep the passer
must move back early.
2 Athletes should try to anticipate early if the ball is in
their passing zone and make the move towards their
partner.
