Seven Good Volleyball Drills

Updated on March 5, 2015


Volleyball coaches are always looking for good drills. Whether they be to help in serve receive, defense, sideout play, or even skill building. A good coach always wants to add new things to their arsenal in terms of practice design. Here are seven drills that I enjoy using with my teams.

Blocking Progression From Canada

Glenn Hoag, Head Coach of Team Canada Men's Volleyball shows us a blocking progression drill from the FTC in Gatineau, Quebec.

Family Feud

Family Feud is a drill I found online that incorporates toughness (Jousting), free ball offense, and being able to score when needed with your serve.

Scrap Drill

Scrap Drill is a good recovery to attack drill to work on with partners. Good for setters and middles who usually end up playing balls out of the net.

Crosscourt Pepper/Drill of 15

Crosscourt Pepper is a good drill to focus on all things attacking in the crosscourt area. It's also good to help get the team warmed up a bit. Can play it cooperative to start, then when warm, go competitive.

Drill of 15

W Drill

The W Drill - good setting/overhead passing drill. Perhaps start with 2 balls only, then build up to four.

Six Person Pepper Drill

The Six Person Pepper drill is a good warmup drill for armswing and defenders.

Kill 50

In the Kill 50 Drill, you are training your middles to get off the net and then attack to high efficient areas. They have ten minutes to get to 50, and the coaches doubt they'll make it the first time through during the year. Could also add in Middles and Rights to this one, Middles and Lefts.
