Clinician: Joe Sagula, head women’s volleyball coach at the University of North Carolina
Purpose: To give all 12 players multiple serving, passing and setting reps concurrently
How it works: For this simple serve-pass-and-catch drill, divide into four groups of three players. Each group includes a passer and setter on one side of the net with a server across the net just behind the 10-foot line. Two balls stay in constant motion among each group of three. As soon as the server serves, the setter bounces the second ball to the server so she can be ready to serve immediately. After five good passes, the three players in each group switch places. As servers start to warm up, they can serve from closer and closer to the endline. Once good ball control has been achieved, the setter can start setting to herself before catching and tossing to the server.
Requirements: Groups of three up to a total of 12 players, two balls per group and a full court
