Genny Volpe, head coach at Rice University, introduces a fun ball-control drill here that requires focus and communication.
Players start by pairing up and lining up across the net from their partners. Then, they do the following passing variations: 1. Pass back and forth under the net. 2. Pass back and forth over the net. 3. One player passes over the net, one player passes under the net. 4. Pass into the net, then pass over the net to your partner. 5. Pass into the net, then under the net to your partner.
The goals of this drill: communicate, control the ball and fight to keep it off the floor.
