The best youth volleyball players do a Shuttle Warm Up
 
01:45
http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/?p=3183 Here's a get-your-feet moving warmup at the beginning of practice or just a way for players to keep getting those repetitions during individual warmups... Grab your two BFFs and start shuttling. Total time: 15 min Section time: 5 min Section 1- Arm Warm-up: This is just a series of basic throws and arm swings. Section 2- Ball Control: Platform passing, hands passing and pass to self/set to partner. you determine when to yell "switch!" Section 3- 3-Man Pepper: The far player is a libero. She can stay or rotate, you choose. The more reps, the better. The girl in the middle is the setter... She can stay there the whole time (unless she's also a hitter)... the other girls rotate in and out. Trust me, these girls do this drill series all the time and they're legit. I mean. They won Crossroads.

Ball Control Volleyball Drill: Continuous Butterfly
 
01:14
Step 1. Passer is using platform only to pass to setter. Setter must set the ball to the server, who bumps it over to the passer continuously. The goal is to keep it going for 1 min. Keep starting over and trying till you get it for a minute. Step 2. passer is using hands only. 1 min. Step 3. (Very tough). The difference is that the server is now hitting a downball to the passer instead of a bump over. Passer can use hands or platform. 1 min is the goal, but 30 sec is really good.

Volleyball Coaching Equipment: Precision Passer
 
01:36
Recently, the manufacturer of the Precision Passer (http://precisionpasser.com/) sent us a precision passer to see what we thought of his product. And I have to say, it's pretty awesome. Typically, a coach may have a target or the setter stand at the net to simulate the setter. Everyone does this. Everyone has to be a target at some point in their volleyball careers. What's awesome with the precision passer, is that you don't need to waste a player. No player is standing around. Instant passing awesomeness feedback: Next to having a person standing there with her hands up like a setter saying "Good job", this precision passer is great for instant feedback. Move it where you want: The precision passer is easy to install, just clip it on the net. And, if you decided you'd rather have your passers pass somewhere else along the net, it's very lightweight and mobile. Perfect for individuals: The precision passer is crucial in volleyball individuals and lessons. Typically, in a lesson, it's just the player and one coach. Just snap this thing right on the net and you've got your target (a very accurate target). Some coaches use volleyball carts or even trash barrels to simulate the setter. Those aren't as accurate because you only factor in location of the pass, not height. If you're looking for your players to pass to a specific position along the net at a specific height (as most coaches are), the precision passer will help. You can tilt the angle down (for a more straight, first tempo pass) or up (for a higher pass). Take a look at the precision passer in action. Http://www.volleyballdrills.tv

Volleyball Middle Blocking Drill: Blocking and Transition
 
01:29
Stumbling off the net after a block? Spinning around in the middle of the net watching other (ready) hitters take all your sets? If you answered yes, you're probably a middle hitter. Or constantly watching a middle hitter run into everybody on the court (especially the setter). This drill helps middles practice the footwork necessary to stay in sync with the rest of the offense. Yes footwork. There is footwork for just about everything in volleyball. The way she swings out to block at the pins (more detailed here). The way she goes up for her quick hit. All footwork. And we're not all naturally gifted like this hitter, so it takes practice and drills like this one. We need 4 helpers on this one. (Would it be nice to have that many assistants??) We only have one assistant, Jesus. Yes, Jesus (that's him in the middle). The rest of the helpers are players. Here's were you put them: Helpers 1, 2, and 3: opposite the hitter in all three blocking positions on boxes (unless you're 6'6″ like Jesus). Helper 4: tosser behind the 10-ft line. 1. Helpers on boxes (and Jesus) hold volleyballs to help the middle blocker reach over the net and spread her arms. 2. Helper/coach in center of the net (Jesus) is telling the middle blocker which way to go for the "block." 3. For the set, the middle blocker must communicate with the setter in transition. 4. Five reps then switch with other middle (the tall blonde on the other side of the net). Do you have two tall uncoordinated middle blockers? Then, this is a drill for you! http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/volleyball-drills/middle-blocker-swing-block

Volleyball Drill: Servers vs Passers with hitters
 
02:15
This volleyball drill is working on a lot of different things. The main focus is servers are competing against passers. This drill is all about getting multiple good passes in row and eliminating consecutive bad passes in a row. 2 minutes on the clock and servers ready to keep serving to passers in serve/receive. If passers can get 3 good passes in a row, they get a point. But if the servers force them to have 2 bad passes in a row, servers get a point. Losers at the end of 2 minutes have a punishment. I like having lots of different things going on in a drill to keep people moving, so I'm having OH hitters hit during this drill too and also blockers working on blocking( no scoring happens for the hitters or blockers). But you can do this drill without any hitters. We'll repeat this again and again still doing "passers vs servers" but adding different hitting positions. For example, the next 2-min round had the middles hitting, then the next 2 min rightsides, etc.

Challenge: Extreme Volleyball Drill
 
02:49
In case you forgot the rules, here they are: 1. Four 2-minute rounds of 3 on 3. 2. You can double any ball. 3. You have 3 seconds to get your butt behind the end line and serve. 4. No roll shots if the set is above the net. Then they end (just like the sand volleyball pros did) with Spike-off. In Spike-off, stick with 3 on 3. Alternate serving. Team A takes the first one, team B takes the second one, team A takes the third one and so on for 10 total serves. Each serve number = that many points. For example: the first serve=1 point; second serve= 2 points; etc... What a workout! The girls were breathing pretty heavily after this one. Can your team hang in this lung-buster? http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/?s=extreme+volleyball

Volleyball Blocking Drill: Rhythm Blocking
 
00:47
Here's the rhythm: Block, swing right, block, swing left, block, swing right, block, bring it back to the right, block, swing left, block, swing right, block and out. I know, I know... that's a lot to remember but so is the learning the Tango, or Electric Slide :) But once you get the rhythm down, you'll have it . I like this drill because it makes our girls think, but it also makes them work on footwork and closing blocks. Let me ask you again, So do you think you can dance? http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/?p=1233

Volleyball Team Drill: Vegas!
 
01:21
It's Vegas Baby! My volleyball teammate just got back from a Thanksgiving in Las Vegas and it reminded me of this volleyball drill. It's called "Vegas" (see why it reminded me?) 1. Each side gets a free ball (just an easy toss) 2. Play 5 tosses. Keep track of your points from this round. 3. Then the side with the higher score, after those first 5 tosses, gets the "money ball." 4. The winner of the "money ball" rally gets to put their points in a "bank." 5. But the poor loser loses the points gained in this round (booooo). 6. Repeat steps 1-5 until one of the teams reaches 21 points or higher (we're not that strict on our Vegas rules). This is a good way to help your volleyball team finish a game strong and not lose luster because they are ahead. Similar to a game situation, it takes just one "money ball" to change the favor of the game. Visit http://www.volleyballdrills.tv for more! You know what? Don't worry if you lose; I won't tell because what happens in Vegas...

Beginner Volleyball Passing Drill: Ladder Passing
 
01:39
1. Line up some girls at the net. We have 3 on one side and 2 on the other side (but you do what you can with your number of players). 2. The rest of the players line up on one side at the 10′ line with a volleyball. 3. Pass and shuffle through the tossers and when you get to the end, pass to yourself as you walk around the net and continue on the other side. 4. After one round, switch to passing from 15-18′ back. Repeat step 3. 5. Now, switch to setting at the 10′ line. Repeat step 3 (but with sets of course). 6. Now, step back to 15-18′ again. Repeat step 3 (again, with sets). If you like to stress repetition (and you should). This is the perfect drill for your team. Even the targets are getting reps while they stand there. I LOVE repetition. It is KEY to improving your game. http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/volleyball-drills/a-ladder-in-a-volleyball-drill

Volleyball Serving Drill: Serving Around the World
 
02:13
http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/volleyball-drills/can-you-serve-every-volleyball-court-zone-twice-in-two-minutes Serving zones in volleyball is a tough skill to master. But if you can pick apart their serve receive with your serving selection, you will definitely have the upper hand in any volleyball match. Getting extra reps with zone serving is fun with this Around the World drill. Start your volleyball cart in Zone 1 on both sides (if you have enough players). Start the time with a "go!" and all the players serve zone. The first girl to hit the cart, moves the cart to the next zone and gets back on the serving side. The team, together, has to make it all the way around the world twice in under 2 minutes.

Volleyball Fun Drill: Queen of the Court
 
01:16
If you ask your boyfriend or husband, I'm sure he'll say you are the queen of the court. But what would your volleyball team say? Prove your skills in this game situation volleyball drill, Queen of the Court. This is a fun, competitive, conditioning-type drill for teams of all ages. In Donnie's video below, he chose to have his girls play doubles. Typically queen of the court is played with triples but vary the teams depending on your skill level. "Fast fours" is a version of Queen of the Court for younger, less experienced players. Enough chatter, on to the drill! Object: To win rallies on the queen side of the court to earn the goal points first. So, here's how it goes. 1. Set a goal number of points. We'll say 10. The teams only earn points on the queen side. 2. One side of court is named the "winner (queen) side" and the other is the "challenger side." 3. Put one team on each side (I usually make them race to earn the court). 4. The challenger side always serves the ball. a. If the challengers win the rally, they move to the queen side and start earning points. b. If the queens win, they get a point and the challengers step off the court; a new challenging team will take their place. 5. The game continues until a team reaches the 10 points. BEWARE: After the first time you do this drill, be prepared for your team to ask for it at every practice. Yeah... it's that fun. http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/volleyball-drills/are-you-the-queen-of-the-volleyball-court

Volleyball Conditioning Drill: Pass Out
 
00:56
Try this conditioning drill. The coach tosses to a volleyball player, she passes the ball to the setter and runs under the net, she will be the passer this whole round. The player who sets runs under the net and stays the setter this whole round. The player who hits runs under the net and stays the hitter this whole round. It's cooperative so it requires some ball control and communication. Try to get 10 repetitions without letting the volleyball drop!

Volleyball offensive drill: The Cage
 
01:40
Here's the set up. Near side: is the offense...passer, setter and two hitters on the pins. Far side: front row defense with coach tossing balls to offense and a setter for transition swings. I had the setter step under the net to do 2 jobs because we were missing a setter Coach tosses to passer, setter chooses which hitter to set and middle has to read and close a block to get a block. whether there's a block or not, the middle transitions and gets a set. Repeat. This volleyball drill is focused on the middle but works many different areas of the game. Middle has to get a certain number of roof blocks to get out of drill. We've done 3 or even 5 if I really want to push the middle for conditioning.

Volleyball Drill: Queen Series
 
02:57
Great drill to create some chaos and make players think in certain situations by twisting the rules on how Queen of the court is played. we played 4v4, but any combo could be used. 5 different rounds, do each for 5 min or so 1. 1st contact must be sent over, then play is live 2. 1st contact is sent over, then 2 contacts and over, then it's live 3. coach bounces a ball and it's then free balled over, then live 4. X court challenge- play normal queen style but now every attack must be put on opponents left side of the court or its an error. 5. attacks must be played only on right side of the court

Volleyball Drill: Can you do back-to-back attacks?
 
00:59
Here's a competitive team volleyball drill that focuses on getting a kill from serve receive and from defense. The 6 girls on the team side have a mission. Their mission is to get back to back swings. The first swing is from serve receive and the second is from a dig. 1. Non-team side serves aggressively to the team side (feel free to choose zones). If the team side gets a good pass and a good swing, go to step 2. (Coach defines "good" on the passes/digs/swings). If not, repeat step 1. 2. The coach on the non-team side sets the non-team outside hitter. 3. To win a point, the team side must get a good dig and a good swing. 4. Play to 7. Feel free to switch up hitters during the drill. This volleyball drill may take a while depending on the toughness of the non-team side. Notice these girls don't get 1 point until the third try. Don't take it easy on them, they need this! :) View the drill here: http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/?p=2522

Volleyball Challenge: Can your libero get 21 touches?
 
00:58
Volleyball coaches: Give your libero/defensive specialist the ultimate workout with 21 Touches. Eventually, you will hear groans when you say the words "21 Touches." Better get used to it because this drill is absolutely great for making those defensive monsters hit the floor and get back up and hit the floor again. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. So, how do you do it? It's very simple (you know how I love simple drills). 1. Get a volunteer (this may be a mandated "volunteer"). 2. Have her start in the middle of the court. 3. Start hitting, tip, chucking volleyballs all around and even off the court. Get creative. They'll need to practice digging these ridiculous placed volleyballs anyway. 4. The volleyball player remains the digger until she gets a total of 21 Touches (hence the name). 5. Choose a new victim, er, um, volunteer. As you can see, this is a one-woman show. There are several players standing on the sidelines shagging and supplying volleyballs to the coach. It's necessary to have a couple players standing by for help, but feel free to have the other girls work on another drill on their own while they are waiting. Your team will be in shape in no time! Don't forget to hydrate, you don't want to end up like this girl.

Volleyball Blocking Drill: No waterfalls
 
00:38
What are we working on here: - blocking (obviously) - footwork - speed - vertical - avoiding waterfalls (when the other team hits into your block and the ball falls on your side of the net. Very embarrassing.) This blocking video is pretty self explanatory: wash, rinse, repeat. Feel free to assign your own reps.

Beginner Volleyball Passing Drill: Shuffle Passing
 
00:54
Here's the set up: 1. Line your players up at the middle of the baseline 2. Toss the ball to either the left or right and they have to shuffle to get the ball on their left 3. After they pass, they continue to shuffle to the side line and touch it before changing directions 4. Judging skill level, I toss the ball far enough to challenge them to shuffle quickly to pass 5. They make one more turn at the other side line and then their last pass to finish in the middle 6. Next passer steps in This volleyball drill has helped my 13 year old club volleyball team shuffle into their passes and make the extra effort to pass on their left for a good passing angle. Reaching can develop into a very poor habit and at higher levels, it just won't cut it. Good luck with your youngins'

Volleyball Drill: the best defense drill you'll ever play
 
01:15
It looks like a lot to read, so watch the video first and use the instructions below as a reference when you try this drill with your team. 3 players start at left front. Each must pass a run-through to start the drill (that is a very short tip directly back up to the coach). After the pass, she'll go to her respective position. Player 1 to right back. Player 2 to middle back. Player 3 to left back. Let the drill begin! The coach will strategically place the ball in spots on the court. (hopefully the coach has some mad skills or this could get ugly pretty quickly) Rule 1 "CIRCLE": If he tips the ball in front of the 10-ft line on the wings (that is, left front and right front), the players "circle" in the direction of the dig. For example, He tips to left front. She takes a step toward the net. She must run through that dig all the way to right front, while yelling "CIRCLE!" so the other players know to follow in that direction. (Eg. Middle back player is now in left back. Right back player is now in Middle back.) Rule 2 "SWITCH!": If the coach puts a ball in the middle of the court (the donut), Left back and right back must decide who will dig the ball. (Eg. They decide-by communication-that left back will dig it.) As she runs toward the ball yelling "SWITCH!", the right back digger must switch to cover left back's position. Rule 3 "SWITCH!": If the coach sends a long shot to one of the deep corners, it's automatically middle back's ball. She will yell "SWITCH!" and run to the corner to take the dig. (Eg. If the ball travels to the left back corner, middle back will dig the ball and left back will cover her position. Middle back is now left back. Left back is now middle back.) Rule 4 "STAY": This is an easy one. If the player digging the ball does not move, she yells "STAY" and everyone stays. On a hard-driven ball, everyone stays. When the play has stopped or the coach stops the drill. The team must quickly exit the court, so a new team can start. Switch up the groups of 3 or run a competition for which group can stay on the court the longest. NOTE: The player who passes the ball decides which rule applies and must communicate that to the other players. But the coach can overrule any decision. On my court, if I have to move to receive a dig, the drill is over. But, each coach can apply their own rules based on the players' skill level. Yes. I know. It seems too complicated and everyone hates it the first time. But once the players get the hang of it, they love this drill. It's fun and challenging. Http://www.volleyballdrills.tv

Volleyball: Defensive Conditioning Drill
 
00:58
Do the hussle! dun-dun-dun da-dun-da-da-dun-dun! This defensive conditioning volleyball drill's got me doing the hussle. Well that and Just Dance 4. It was a Christmas present for my daughter but man I love that game! Anyway... Get your backrow threesome hussling with this "Knee Pad" volleyball drill. Here's what you do. 1. Toss the volleyball to a wingplayer. Now middle back has to run over touch that wingplayer's knee pad. 2. Then, toss the volleyball to middle back, both wingplayers have to touch middle back's knee pads. 3. Repeat on the opposite side with the other wingplayer. 4. Repeat with random tosses in all spots in the back portion of the court for about 8 reps. 5. Yell "Switch!". Right back players from both sides rotate to other side of the court* and the volleyball never stops moving as everyone rotates. 6. If there is an error, both sides STOP and start that 8 reps over. Keep rotating through until every player gets through both sides. *I forgot to mention this drill is happening on both sides of the court. If you don't have another coach to keep it going, have a front row player run the drill with sets and passes rather than tosses... or... if you don't have enough players, just run it on one side of the net.

Active Passing volleyball warmup drill
 
00:58
Great warmup volleyball drill to get your team moving. First, start with Tempo 3. Nice, high passes. It's very simple. Pass and follow your pass. When you're following your pass, you must take the right side (to avoid collision). Next, move it down to Tempo 2. It should speed them up a little and create a little more of a hustle. Finally, Tempo 1. Low passes keep the girls moving quickly and ball control must be at its peak. In a 5 minute warmup period, the coach can choose the amount of time spent with each Tempo. Yell "3, 2, 1. 3, 2, 1" or switch it up a little to keep them on their toes (or to keep their ears perked up). 5 minutes will get their blood flowing... but they'll ready for the next progression, which is Active Pepper.

Working on moving feet to pass short balls, get warmed up or a nice workout. Once they're tired, switch groups and repeat. This can be done in any area of the court. Http://www.volleyballdrills.tv

Volleyball Classic Drill: Serve and Chase
 
01:04
Each player serves 10 balls total. Once they serve, they chase their own ball for a little conditioning. Pick a zone you want the players to serve, I chose zone 1 and used chairs as visual targets. I also want them to hit a certain part of the zone, deep and far corner of zone 1. when serving 10 balls, they have to track their scoring. They get 2 points for hitting directly behind the chairs, 1 point for hitting anywhere else that's in zone 1, 0 points for a serve missing zone 1 but lands in-bounds and minus 1 point for a missed serve. the goal is to have 8 points after 10 serves or 6 points for jump servers. If they don't get the goal, they do push ups. Repeat 10 balls at same zone if the team doesn't do well or move to a different zone.

Volleyball: Target setting and hitter Arm swing warm-up
 
01:06
s a coach, you must know how difficult it is to convince teenagers to workout in the summer, let alone in a gym with no A/C. But we managed to corral a few die hards. For this drill, our libero is the setter, our defensive specialist is playing middle hitter and our outside is eh-hem playing outside. Due to the lack of players in this gym, our girls are getting reps in positions they don't usually play. That definitely makes for a well rounded team! This is a skills focus volleyball drill similar to Box Approaches with Setter.The setter is practicing several different sets noted in the video. Watch as she uses the hitters' hands as targets for her sets (not bad for a libero, huh?). The hitters are warming up their arm swing and practicing attack selection. Pick a zone for the hitters and have them aim there for a few sets and then switch it up. Both the hitters and the setter are working on ball placement. I love to multitask. So why not apply that to volleyball? Simple drills like this leave plenty of room for modification. And of course, it's always good to get more players doing more stuff in warmup drills -- multitasking. For example, if you're warming up your setter, instead of tossing to her, toss to a passer who can pass the volleyball to her. Then, instead of a target, put a hitter out there who can get some arm swings. Or maybe add a server who can mini-serve to the passer. See what I mean? The options are endless. Adding and taking away players can change how the drill is played. How do you multitask you warmups? Read the article for this drill at http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/?p=752.

Beginner volleyball: Volleyball passer's workout
 
01:48
Check out more Volleyball Drills, Tips and Entertainment at http://www.volleyballdrills.tv. Here's an example of how we like to work our passers out individually. - Start out with standard platform passing - Once she's feeling good about her rhythm, move on to some basic digging technique. Step back, hop forward. - Then, throw in some serve/receive with a ball cart as the target (this is tough!) - Practice perfecting the float serve - Get moving with some "active passing" (see our active passing video) - Work on playing some defense with a hitter on a box, smashing balls angle There you have it... enjoy! http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/?p=256

Volleyball: Who else wants a better kill percentage?
 
00:46
Attack selection is one of the most difficult and most rewarding concepts in volleyball. Being a hitter requires not only great coordination, form and power... you've got to be smart. And in many cases, smarts outweigh power. As much fun as it is to smack the Molten off the volleyball, if you're hitting against a decent team, they can easily block you or dig you (deporting you from Spiketown almost instantly). There are several ways to practice your attack selection. Here's a very simple volleyball drill to work on zone hitting (In case you're tired of hitting it directly to the other team's libero every time!). If you don't have boxes, substitute chairs, taped Xs, volleyball players... almost anything (or anyone) can be a target. Outsides, practice deep line and hard angle. Middles hit left and right angles. Rightsides, deep line or angle (Tip: A right side slide hitter who hits line consistently will be VERY successful).

Beginner volleyball: how to do an approach
 
00:28
1. She begins by standing slightly outside the court at the 10-ft line-ish with her left foot forward (weight on right foot). 2. First she steps with her left foot (this may feel awkward at first but the key is having her weight on her right foot at the start) 3. Second she steps with her right foot. 4. Last she steps to bring feet back together and close the approach before takeoff. 5. She brings her arms back in the last step to prepare to leap. 6. She jumps. 7. She brings her hitting arm back and puts her "off" out front (to 'find' the ball). We call this "bow and arrow." See the similarities? 8. She swings and simultaneously pulls her "off" elbow into her ribs. 9. BOOM! This particular attacker is a 12-year-old in her first season of playing volleyball... ever. As you can see, with weeks and weeks of repetition, the approach becomes second nature to an attacker. http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/?p=523

Volleyball Drill: Butterfly Continuous Passing
 
00:44
Step 1. Passer is using platform only to pass to setter. Setter must set the ball to the server, who bumps it over to the passer continuously. The goal is to keep it going for 1 min. If you drop it before a minute, start over until you get it for a minute. Step 2. Passer is using hands only. Goal: 1 minute Step 3. (Very tough) The server is now hitting a downball to the passer instead of a pass. Passer can either set or use their platform. Goal: 1 minute (But 30 sec is still good) http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/volleyball-drills/butterfly-passing-volleyball-drill

Part 2: Volleyball Blocking/Transition/Hitting Warmup Drill
 
01:02
Focus on the footwork. Some consider this footwork to be somewhat controversial. Namely, they think the hitter is taking her eyes off the volleyball. However, look at her eyes (if you could... sorry about the distance). If you could see her eyes. You could tell she can see the volleyball. Her body is going to make that full turn (which is totally controversial) to be as fast and smooth as possible. And, she can see the ball the whole time. If she turned the other way, like most people do, she'd have to reverse her direction to keep her body facing the net. It's slower and isn't smooth. Now, to the actual video. Coach is pointing to where she needs to block. After the block, the player will call her set. It's a little difficult to hear in the loud gym, but trust that she's calling it, and your middle hitters should too. Http://www.volleyballdrills.tv

Volleyball blockers drill: How to practice closing a block
 
00:58
Here's a blocking volleyball drill that will get your team's feet moving in the right direction. It's good to do this type of "form-up" (a form warmup) drill at the beginning of practice to get blood flowing, especially in cold gyms like this one. The video below makes the drill seem pretty simple. Two-ball blocking uses the footwork demoed in our Swing Blocking post, PLUS it helps players learn to reach over the net. Almost in synchrony, the blockers move toward the right side of the net- 5 reps all the way across the net. Then, 5 reps toward the outside (or left side of the net). Then switch for new set of "warm-up enthusiasts." Assign your own number of sets depending on time, skill level, and need. These girls may get a few more sets in until they're warm enough to take off their sweats. lol.

Passing Volleyball Drill: 50 in 15
 
01:09
Using the best passer. 15 minutes on the clock, get a point each time you make a basket or the ball touches the frame. Rotate to the left every 3 balls. We've adjusted this to 40, then to 45 , then to 50. Depends on what level your team is at. The passers will run if they don't get the goal and we track how many missed serves too and servers will have to run for missed serves.

Volleyball Hitting Contest: Showdown
 
01:41
Here's the gist: Put two of your best hitters against each other with a setter. They take turns getting a set against a full defense. First to 5 wins. Get 1 point for a kill; minus 1 for an error; wash if they dig it up. This is a good way to determine hitting positions for a game if you have two hitters who are equal in potential.

Flush Volleyball Drill
 
00:30
Check out more Volleyball Drills, Tips and Entertainment at http://www.volleyballdrills.tv. This is a great warmup drill for passers. For this volleyball drill, you need 4 players, 1 tosser and 1 target. The group of 4 should separate into 2 pairs. The first pair stand next to each other (the other 2 lined up on the outside of the drill). Slap the volleyball to signal the start of the drill. The first pair shuffles back. Toss the volleyball just over their shoulders. The players pass every ball on their left. They must adjust their bodies to the right of the volleyball. In an emergency if the ball is on their right they can use their hands to pass. The second group files in for their turn. Shuffling down the middle and running back to the 10-ft line on the outside. Repeat for 20 tosses. This drill should move very quickly. The players are trying to shuffle back fast enough and use their forearms on a higher tossed volleyball. Make sure the players are keeping their bodies square to the tosser. That means hips, feet, shoulders all facing the tosser. In order to get the volleyball to the target, the players must tilt their platforms and drop their right shoulder. On especially high balls, they can lift their left leg and hip to raise their platform and make solid contact with the volleyball. How do you know if they are doing it right? Theyll look like peeing dogs. Male, of course.

Volleyball Game: Short Court with Conditioning
 
00:52
Take your regular Short Court volleyball rules: 1. Teams of 3. 2. The sidelines and the 10' line make up the Short Court. Each volleyball player must serve behind the 10' line. 3. Most hits are tips because not many youth players can effectively hit the ball in front of the 10' line (maybe a young Logan Tom). 4. Any number of hits (less than 3) can be used to take the volleyball over the net. 4. Play to 15; best 2 out of 3. Here's the twist. 1. In this Short Court game, each team must have 3 touches before the volleyball goes over the net. 2. After each touch (except the serve), the player who contacted the ball must run to touch the end line behind them. Http://www.volleyballdrills.tv

Beginner Volleyball Passing Drill: Pass & Go
 
00:29
Passing and shuffling and passing and shuffling... One of my coaches repeated over and over and over through our first week of practice (hell week, I call it). But... he had good reason. Shuffling through your pass is very important. It's the dismount, if you will. Hold your forearms steady and shuffle through. In this drill, it's just one volleyball and one friend. Pass straight, shuffle, pass angle, pass straight, shuffle back, pass angle. http://www.volleyballdrills.tv/?p=1320
