DRILL OBJECTIVE
Athletes learn to react early to short and
deep serves and get practice in the
movement patters associated with receiving
serves that are placed short and deep.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
The coach or athletes on the service line give
short or deep serves to the passers.
Drill could be made game like by having
passers get a point if the ball is caught in
ideal setting position.
In order for this drill to be effective servers
need to be able to serve a ball short and
deep consistently.
If this is not the case the coach may have to
step in and serve or throw, either from the
baseline or mid court.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Catcher can be removed and balls
can be played out.
TEACHING POINTS
1 The athletes ready position on service receive needs
to be with center of gravity in the middle (allowing
quick forward and backward movement) and with
one foot slightly in front of the other.
2 The athletes should be encouraged to read the ball
as early as possible off the servers hand.
3 If this is done with beginner athletes, they may need
to be reminded to move with the hands apart.
4 When moving forward to pass the short serve the
passer should be aware of foot positioning. (refer to
drill 3.5 for details)
