DRILL OBJECTIVE
The objective of this drill is to encourage a
pass that is ‘up and down’ and close to the
individual who passed the ball which aids in
the development a pass that is easier to set.
Be aware that in the reality of a game
situation (perhaps on a windy day) you would
not want to pass as high as this drill
encourages.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Athlete or coach drives a down ball or easy
float serve to passer on the other side of the
net.
This could be done from either the middle of
the court or the service line depending on the
level of the athletes.
The passer attempts to play the ball up in the
air a couple feet in front of them and spike
their own ball over the net.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Serve more aggressively.
Mark out certain spots on the court
that the athlete has to spike into.
TEACHING POINTS:
1 Remind the athlete to move to the ball so that they
are always passing the ball within the centerline of
their body.
2 Encourage the athletes to pass the ball high enough
that they have time initiate a spike approach.
3 Encourage athletes to focus on the pass first, attack
second and to pass low so that if they can get to
stray balls quickly.
