Volleyball has three main skills that are needed in every game, serving, passing and hitting the ball. Reducing the games to four and four let’s the students have more chances at each of their spots, either back row (receiving), blocking/hitting the ball and lastly, the setter.

Having that perfect kill shot (spike), there must be a distance between you and the net (start at 10-foot line). The spike approach is the next important step, swing your arm passed your shoulder and hit downwards. The way you land is where you indicate where your ball is going.

Make sure the player is in a squat position and having their arms out. When the players is shuffling for the ball, have their arms out and when they are ready to pass the ball, they have to make sure that the ball is hitting their forearm.

Drop and drive must be done with “Two-Triangle Stance”. For this drill, you have to be in a squat position, having your back flat with your arms extended out in front of you with your palms up. When the ball is in the hitters position make sure to keep watch of the hitter and the way their hands are. Keep your arms straight out and don’t move it at all. Let the ball come straight into your arms.

Whenever starting a game or even starting a “new round” it starts off with a serve. It’s very important to be very good in swerving because if your serving is good then that’s how it’s easier to get a point. Practicing “Serve Receive” also teaches, how to receive balls when the other team is serving. Every serve is different and you can’t tell how it’s coming.

Without a good set then the hitter’s hit can be off. By having a good set, you must set the ball up high in the air and right at the corners depending on where the hitter is.
