Players work in pairs with one ball.
Players play within a section of court and are attempting to get the ball to bounce twice to win a point.
Players can catch the ball in one hand to the side of them, moving up and down with the motion of the ball as they catch and release the ball.
As players improve this game can become more competitive, with players using fakes and glances in the opposite direction to send their partner the wrong way, so they can win the point!
Ensure players have sufficient space to avoid pairs running into one another.
3 balls in play, teams of 4 in each half of the court.
Each court has 1 ball which they must pass around constantly, with all players participating.
At the same time, each team attempts to pass another ball back and forth between the teams, with the aim of getting the ball to land on the opposition's side of the court.

7 Serve Drills
One of the partners has the ball and holds it out away from their body in front of their belly button. The player then turns and drops the ball and the partner has to move and catch the ball before it bounces twice and they repeat (no dummy moves and the ball must land twice in the same place). As they get better at the game, the player catching the ball must be facing their partner when they catch the ball and the ball must be caught with their hands just in front of and between their knees. The catcher then must turn and drop the ball within 1 or 2 seconds. You play this game for points or time.
