Purpose: A dynamic drill that includes free-ball repetitions, simulated covering after a block and out-of-system situations. This drill can be adjusted to fit the skill level of the team.
How it works: 6 players play out a free ball initiated from a teammate on the opposite side of the net. Every free-ball pass that is within several steps of the setter is considered a “good” pass. Depending on the skill level of the team, determine a target number of successful passes before moving on. Once the team has reached that number, add in a cover ball to make the drill more game-like. To advance the drill, start by playing out a free ball and then immediately throw in an out-of-system ball that requires the team to adapt to foreign situations.
Requirements: Full team, full court, a coach and a cart of balls
