August 2019 Coaching Tip

Posted by Volley CART on

Tip by Matt Barkley, Post Falls HS in Post Falls, Idaho. I call this drill S-P-C, Serving-Passing-Conditioning. This drill tackles all 3 in one drill. Split up your team with one side passing and one side serving. Coach can be a target and judge on quality of pass. Players rotate from serving side to passing side. After every serve someone is doing a type of conditioning activity. We do a down and back run to net and end line. You can do whatever floats your boat!! If the server misses their serve, the server runs to the net and back...

The winner is the player who teaches 21points first....

May 2019 Coaching Tip

Posted by Volley CART on

Drill by Taylor Stallman from Phoenix, AZ. A drill to emphasize 1st Ball Side Out (FBSO), and minimizing errors.One side serves 5 balls in each rotation. The other side receives the entire drill (or you can modify to alternate who serves and receives), and are the only team scoring. So if you go through all 6 rotations, there are a total of 30 balls served. After those 6 rotations you should have a point total, which the other team then tries to beat. The scoring works this way:3 points- First Ball Side Out2 points- Missed Serve by opponent1 point- Any...
