Players work in groups of 4.
To start this drill one player throws the ball over the net. The player on the other side moves to be under the ball and then bumps it to the player to their right at the net.
The setter then passes the ball to the fourth player who already has a ball.
As soon as the ball is thrown/served by the feeder the fourth player should throw his ball, bouncing once before it reaches them, so that they're ready to serve the ball as soon as the setter has passed the ball back to the fourth player.
This drill can be measured in time or good repetitions.
The reason for using two balls is you can do a vast amount of contacts in a short time; the feeding can be changed to an overarm service when the feeder is a competent server as the emphasis is the passing.
Rotate players regularly to give everyone a chance to work on their game passing skills.
The first player starts the game with a throw over the net.
The two players on the other side of the net communicate - with one moving towards the net and the other who volleys the ball while their partner moves to meet the ball.
The player that has moved to the net faces their partner to receive and return the pass.
The player who first passed the ball moves towards the net and points to where they want the next high pass to be placed.
The player then volleys the ball over the net.
After this both players should return to a side by side playing position ready to play defence and start the drill again.
VSG:2V2 HIGH COURT
Start the game by volleying the ball over the net to the player at the back of court they overhand pass the ball to the player at the net who sets the ball up for the player to move forward and play the ball over the net with a volley, this then is repeated for a set number, length of time or can be made competitive.
VSG:2V2 HIGH COURT
Volley the ball to your partner who digs the ball to themselves then volleys the ball back to you, whilst they are doing that you do a dive, roll or something else then they do the same as you dig and volley. Do this for a set time or number of good contacts.
2 Warm Up
Start with the ball with one of the outside players who volleys the ball to the middle player they volley it back to the outside player who then volleys over the two middle players to the outside player on the opposite side and repeat. This exercise is for players to be able to control the ball over differing distances. Again this can either be measured by time or number of good volleys.
