DRILL OBJECTIVE
This drill works on developing the ‘over on
two’ option whereby the non-receiver attacks
the ball over on the second contact.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
A coach or athlete serves the ball to two
passers either from the baseline or from the
middle of the court depending on the level of
the players and the focus of the drill.
Depending on the where the pass goes the
non-passer will either set up the ball for a
normal attack or they will take the opportunity
to attack the ball ‘over on two’.
Easy short serves are the best for introducing
this tactic to athletes as it is easier to attack
‘on two’ if the pass travels up and down
rather than forward.
Once the athletes start feeling comfortable
playing the ball over on two you can
introduce areas of the court to hit into.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Additionally you could position a
blocker at the net and the athlete
playing the over on two could either
shoot over them or attempt a hard
spike past them.
Additionally you could position a
defender across the net and the
athlete playing the over on two could
shoot away from them.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Playing the ball over on two is a good option on
short serves as the ball is close to the net and
traveling up and down rather than up and forward.
2 The best areas to attack towards when playing the
ball over on two are to the back corners or short
away from the block.
3 Athletes will be more effective if they reach high and
snap on the attack rather than playing a soft shot.
