Fun Volleyball Serving Drills/Games

Updated on June 21, 2011

Serving Games for Practice

Volleyball is best learned from playing in actual game-like circumstances. Having that said, it isn't always the most fun way to practice. These are two drills that are great for rewarding good behavior, or for picking your team up when they're down. I recommend using these sparingly, and only at appropriate times.

Serving Games

  • This is a fairly common serving game. Split up two teams evenly of any number, say 5 vs 5, and have each team go to opposite serving lines. For 5 vs 5 I would recommend about 6 balls. The teams line up and serve one at a time. If their serve goes in, they go back to the end of the line on their own side. If the ball goes out or into the net, they have to go lay down on the opposite side of the net. The objective then is to hit that person to get them back to your side. Have them keep their butts on the ground and in one spot so they can't cheat. This helps by putting pressure on teams when they are down, and by building confidence in serving to certain areas.
  • Another serving game that is actually quite effective is placing about three hula hoops in an area on the court, then having all of the girls line up on the opposite side to serve at those hoops. The ball must either land inside of them or hit them. The reward? Getting to go over to the hoops and... EAT CANDY! This provides a great incentive to the girls, because they all want to be the one eating candy, and even teasing the rest of the team by saying how good the candy is. This will turn your team silly, so best to save this for the end of practice. Girls switch out after someone else serves to the spot, and the game usually go for as long as it takes for everyone to get some candy. Move the hoops around to challenge them. Tips: If you have ANYONE on your team has braces, make sure you provide some sort of candy that isn't sticky like Starbursts or taffy. They can't eat that kind of food and will be disappointed. Also, get candy in individual packages so that all of their sweaty hands aren't going into a big bucketful of M&M's. Yuck!
