Volleyball Drill Demonstration

Description

Player 1 stands in a defensive position in Zone 6.

The coach or teammates standing at the side of the court then feed player 1 five balls.

Note: three balls should be fed to player 1 using a spike, the fourth is thrown short and the last one is thrown to the baseline.

Coaching points

As there are many kinds of attack during a match so players have to be prepared for short, long and strong attacks.

Progression

After few completions of this drill you should increase the number of balls the player has to defend and change the order of the way the ball is fed.

This is so the player can not get into a rhythm by predicting the way the ball is fed to him/her, which in turn will mean they have to react quicker, just like a game scenario.
