3 Players involved in a Set Relay
For set: Eyes up looking at ball trajectory with knees bent. Stand on the balls of your feet, bending the elbows and pushing through the ball with fingers at point of contact.
A defensive dig before a push into the air and then sets across the net to player 2.
A simple 3 player passing drill, with movement from player 2.
Defensive Dig passes work best.
Players start this drill on the back line in a press-up position looking at the coach.
When the coach self feeds the ball players should get up to their feet and move forward to pass the ball back to the coach before it bounces.
After passing the ball back players should run around the cones on the outside of the court and then join the back of the line.
2 player drill involving one player setting the ball, and the other smashing it.
Divide the court into 3 equal areas with a line across the length of the court. (6m x 9m) 8 player per small court Throw the ball across the net first time under arm with straight arms or 1 arm overhead. For every team, after the ball is thrown the team rotates clockwise one turn. Every time the ball is dropped the player that drops the ball has to leave the field. First team to lose all players loses the point.
Player 1 starts by serving from the base line and then enters the court. He/she then runs into the correct zone (zone 1), where player 2 (standing in zone 4) hits the ball to him/her around waist high. Player 1 then has to dig up the ball, and return it to player 2 as if setting up a spike. Player 1 then returns to their zone, where player 3 (from zone 2) hits the ball to them short in the middle of court. Player 1 then has to dig up the ball back to player 3. Player 1 then returns back to their zone and steps two to three are repeated.
