Volleyball Drill Demonstration

Description

Players start this drill on the sidelines.

The feeder overhand passes accurately and inaccurately to the worker. The worker is required to underhand pass the ball directly back to the feeder - regardless of how fast or slow they have to approach the pass!

Coaching points

Start off with high trajectory overhand passes to dig (easy) and then make it progressively more difficult by lowering the overhand passes.

This practice teaches players to prepare for a pass when finishing a running approach so that they are able to join their arms and pass. As player runs from sideline to the middle and back, this exercise improves their speed and reaction time.
