September 2022 Coaching Tip

Posted by Volley CART on

Tip by Jen Ruggles in Lutherville, MD. My coaching tip - I have 2...pick your favorite or both! I coach beginner volleyball to Elementary and Middle school.... Solo Queens. Great for beginners to focus on ball control and individual skills. Great warmup, quick points, and lots of touches. Split players into 3 even lines: Tossing line, Challenger line and Queen line. Tosser stands off court and underhand tosses over the net to the queen. Play out the point (1 vs 1). Small court size: 10' line and midpoint of net (can set up 2 games on 1 court). Winner of...

Tip by Megan Distler in Jefferson City, MO. We like to make sure we are competing with our serve and our passing. One of our favorite 6v6 for serve and serve receive is serving baseball. Game is played in "innings". Each side starts in rotation 1, with one side serving and one side in serve receive. Serving side is working to earn 3 "outs" - each point they win is an out.
