Clinician: Joe Sagula, head women’s volleyball coach at University of North Carolina
Purpose: To warm up a team’s passing and serving in a short amount of time. This is a great drill to do as a warm-up before a game as it targets the basics of the game but progresses every ten reps or so.
How it Works: Have a passer in each corner of the court. Have at least one or two players behind those passers whose job is to give reps to the passer across the net. The progression is simple; each passer will pass a certain number of free balls, then down balls (hitters are still standing, warming up their arms), then real serves from behind the end line. This is a great drill to warm up at away games when time is tight and players might need many reps within a short amount of time!
Requirements: A full team, a cart of balls and a full court
