Volleyball Drill Demonstration


Three players stand on one side of the net, one in zone 2, one in zone 3 and one in zone 4. These players set the ball in the air and then set to the next player, while a fourth player on the other side of the net follows the ball and jumps to block when each player sets it in the air.

Coaching points

This is an excellent drill to replicate match-like conditions for middle blockers and wing spikers. Sideway runs and block attempts require a quick reaction time and good co-ordination.


If players are skilled enough, those who set the ball may try to overhand pass the ball off the blocker's hands and set it to the other player who may then do the same.
