DRILL OBJECTIVE
This drill is one of the most popular in beach
volleyball.
It allows athletes to get repetitions in serving,
passing, setting and spiking.
The objective within this drill could be
focused around any one of the 4 skills used.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
A coach or athlete serves the ball from the
baseline or inside the court to receivers
alternately.
The choice on where to serve from will be
dependent on the skill level of the athletes
and the objectives of the drill.
After passing the ball the athlete attacks and
then leaves the court to be replaced by
another athlete.
The athlete that just set up the attack drops
back to their original position to prepare to
pass and attack.
Additional athletes can be added to either the
serving or receiving lines.
With an uneven number of athletes on the
receiving side athletes will get practice
passing from both sides of the court.
With an even number of athletes they will
end up receiving on the same side.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
The coach (or athletes) could serve
tougher serves.
The setter could call the shots that
they would like the attacker to make.
Servers can move in to defensive
position and give the hitter a
defender to hit away from.
TEACHING POINTS:
1. Beginners should focus on passing with the moving
triangle concept in mind.
The ideal pass will vary
depending on the wind and the area that the ball is
passed from but it should go forward and inside and
have an up and down trajectory that is easy for the
setter to set.
2. Beginners will benefit from being reminded to pass
the ball
‘forward’
and set the ball
‘forward’
3.
Try to read and anticipate where the serve is likely to
go as early as possible – don’t leave position before
the ball is served but be ‘ready’ to move.
