Posted by Volley CART on

Tip by Susan Kentner, Bismarck Henning HS, Bismarck, IL This is a super fun competitive drill and the girls love it! Blanket Drill: Put a tarp or several blankets over the net so neither team can see the other court, play 6 on 6 and coaches take turns throwing any kind of ball across the net at one of the 6-member teams, they play it out and we keep score....when that rally is finished another coach throws the ball to the other side and we continue to play. The girls have to really watch the ball to see where it...

November 2018 Coaching Tip

Posted by Volley CART on

Tip by: Kristina Gafford, Midland College in Midland, TX. One drill we use on a daily basis is "The Perfection Drill". It is a great warm-up drill that works on all aspects of volleyball: passing, setting, hitting, control, communication, pressure, etc.  Rules... Groups of 3-4 players (typically have 3 groups). Each group needs one passer/hitter and one setter on each side of the net (If there are only 3 players in a group, the setter will set on both sides).

Tip by Scott Reslow, Providence, RI.  One of the top drills we do is one that incorporates serving and passing.  We call it, serve, sprint, and pass.  Coach is in the setter box as the target.  Three passers on the floor with one guy slightly off in the queue.  The rest of the team is serving with the intent to cause a bad pass or an ace.  Ten minutes on the board.  Rules...  If the server misses the serve, he then sprints the full length of the court and back.  If the server's serve is passed perfectly, he then sprints...

August 2018 Coaching Tip

Posted by Volley CART on

Tip by Giff Hancock, from Camas, WA. We all incorporate some sort of penalty in practice for numerous reasons. Using drills for penalties that incorporate volleyball skills instead of just doing sets of lines, while considered a penalty, it is improving a part of their game in addition to their conditioning. One we use is a blocking footwork drill incorporating middle transitions:Players fill the front row positions on both sides of the court with the balance of the team is waiting near left front to transition in as the drill progresses. Blocking sequence: Middle, Transition Left, Middle, Right then MiddleThey...
