January 2021 Coaching Tip

Posted by Volley CART on

Tip from Tracy Gillespie in Forth Worth, TX. Relentless Pepper- this Is a drill that raises the intensity of regular Pepper. It starts with 2 players playing pepper. We add 1 girl on each side of the pepper pair holding a ball. As soon as the pepper rally goes bad, one of these girls toss in a ball so there is no down time. The pepper continues without a hitch. The girl that tosses in the ball has to run and shag it so she has a ball to toss in. The other girl with the ball tosses in the...

Tip by Robin Kuhn in Riceville, IA. We play a little game called "Dodge Ball." My assistant coach created this game late one night after not being able to sleep. Divide your girls into teams and prepare to scrimmage 6 on 6. You play the game like any match, except when a player makes an error and their team loses the point, that player has to sit out.

September 2020 Coaching Tip

Posted by Volley CART on

Tip by Kerri Molitor in Oak Harbor, WA. "Volley-Poker" When playing 6v6 scrimmages, I like to add emphasis on different parts of the game. My teams love to "scrimmage".

Whatever the emphasis, players will earn cards from a regular deck by completing tasks. For example, if the emphasis is on Blocking, then teams will be awarded a card for every block they complete. Or they could get a bonus card for a Stuff Block. If...
