Volleyball Drill Demonstration


All players except one align in one or two rows facing in the same direction and having a bit of space between them.

One player (red) is the master - he/she now trains the rest by showing the following moves in fast and random succession while the Team imitates the red player.

  • jumping
  • lying down and getting up again
  • moving forward (backwards for the team to avoid collisions)
  • moving backward (forward for the team)
  • moving left (right for the team)
  • moving right (left for the team)

Do this exercise for a set amount of time.
