Clinician: Colleen Munson, head women’s volleyball coach at Western Michigan University
Purpose: To warm up in a competitive, game-like situation when the number of players is limited
How it Works: Positioning a third antenna midway along the net, create two narrow courts. At the start, limit the narrow court even more by making the 10-foot line the endline. Each court plays its own two-on-two game. Start by tossing or serving from behind the 10-foot line then play out with normal scoring. Play to five points or for two minutes. Next, lengthen the court to the normal endline and play a normal point.
Variations: If enough players have mini games going, make the drill competitive by having teams shift after each game. Winning teams move to top courts.
Requirements: Four players, a cart of balls a full court and an extra antenna
