Volleyball Drill Demonstration


Each player has a ball. The player starts with the ball above their shoulders in front of their face in the overhand passing position.

The task is to throw the ball up with both hands from the forehead position, just like they would during passing and catching it back in a game.

Coaching points

When the coach sees that the player's technique is good, introduce higher and higher throws to activate legs and arm muscles more.

Players should understand the pass must be executed above the level of their eyes so they can watch where to set.


The progression may be achieved by adding a spin between throw and catch phases.
