Clinician: Laurie Eisler, head women’s volleyball coach for the University of Alberta
Purpose: To train players on every skill
How it works: This warmup drill begins with four players on each side. Right back is the designated setter. If the right back takes the first ball, the other back row player takes the second touch. A coach tosses the ball to Team A who attempts to pass-set-hit the ball over the net. If they succeed, they rotate one position while the ball is still in play. Next, Team B attempts to return the ball. If they succeed, they rotate. This repeats until a dead ball. The coach tosses the ball back in and play continues.
Requirements: 8 players, a cart of balls, a full court and a coach
