DRILL OBJECTIVE
Passer learns footwork and technique for
passing balls served short and deep, left and
right.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Coach stands on ground or bench and
serves balls in order from 1-4.
It is recommended that the receiver plays 2
sets of 4 serves. Any more than that and
technique is likely to suffer due to fatigue.
The non-receiving athlete can either be in
position to catch the pass or run into position
from the passing spot.
The ball that is caught can then be thrown
back to the coach for the next serve.
*Don’t let passers cheat – which means that
the passers move early towards where they
know the serve is going.
After serving all for serves short and deep,
left and right the server could focus on one
particular serve that is causing the passer
problems.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Mix up serves to all positions to
make the drill more difficult.
Coach can move further back or
serve tougher balls.
TEACHING POINTS:
1
On balls passed to the side, passer should bring
arms together behind the ball and get shoulder up
on ball side.
2
On short serves leg closest to sideline should be
forward.
3
Make sure passers are aware of change in target at
each passing position.
4
On the deep ball passers need to get back quickly
so they are moving forward after the pass.
