Volleyball Drill Demonstration

Description

Dig Test:
The captain (C) stands facing the 4 players (1,2,3,4) who are positoned 2-4 metres away.
The caption throws the ball underarm to the torso of player 1 (black lines). Player 1 will then dig the ball back to the captain as accurately as possible. The captain will then repeat this for the other 3 players in order.
Once the ball has been returned by the last player, each person rotates clockwise (white lines) to the next position (C becomes P1, P1 becomes P2 and so on)

This is repeated until all players have had a turn being captain, longer if necessary to determine capability of players.

Set Test:
The same as the dig test, however the captain will underarm throw the ball so that it arches up and comes down as if it's going to land on the players head, and the player will set it back to the captain.

This is repeated until all players have had a turn being captain, longer if necessary to determine capability of players.

Spike Test:
The same as the set test, however the players will instead hit the ball overhead down to the ground, about 1 metre from the captain to allow for the ball to bounce back up to him/her.
