Volleyball Drill Demonstration

Description

Players work in pairs and stand across the court from each other. One player starts with the ball and overhand passes the ball high in the air and then claps their hands over the head and behind their back before the ball comes down.

Once the ball comes back down, the players sets it to their partner, who does the same thing.

Coaching points

By clapping, players have shorter time to prepare for the next pass, just like they will at times in a match. This way they improve their reaction times.

Progression

You may ask players to clap more times or even turn around while clapping if the drill becomes too easy.
