Volleyball Drill Demonstration


Push hard with the opposite side leg to the direction you want to move, close to the outside blocker. Land on the leg for breaking, put the other foot down and jump to block, don't drift in the block, and land in the same place as you take off.

The blocker on the outside gets in the correct position. The feeder on the platform throws the ball up and the blocker moves to block. The outside blocker needs to be in front of the feeders hitting arm and both blockers need to be penetrating the net trying to block the ball. Start off easy and feed the players rhythm, as the players get more competent, increase the speed and distance they have to move.
