DRILL OBJECTIVE
This is a good passing drill that is suitable
when you have an uneven number of
athletes.
It gives the athletes high repetitions in
passing but additionally athletes get a
chance to reinforce the skill of the sideways
and backward movement in the sand.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
One coach or athlete passes the ball to 2
athletes who switch back and forth with each
other to forearm pass the ball.
Athletes could initially move to their right to
switch for a set of about 12-20 repetitions
then switch to moving to their left for the
same number of repetitions.
You could add an additional athlete to the
passing line or even have two lines doing the
same drill back and forth to each other.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
This drill can also be done across the
net.
Have the athletes move to their left
on one pass then to their right on the
next.
You could have two lines with each
athlete moving the opposite direction
of the athlete before them.
TEACHING POINTS
1. Make sure athletes play the ball in front of the body
and there is a space between the body and the ball.
To help this happen encourage athletes to have a
wide base.
2. When shuffling sideways athletes should try to avoid
crossing the legs but keep them wide.
3. When moving backwards athletes’ legs can pass
each other – they do not need to be kept wide.
