This drill is good to evaluate serving and passing.
Three players compete in a one-on-one game played on half of the long court. One player starts the drill with a serve, and the other passes to a target player standing in the setting position. The players compete to see who can get to 2 points first. If the pass is good – as determined by the target player – the passer gets a point. If the pass isn’t good, the server wins the point. If the server gets an ace, the “mini” game ends with the server as the winner. Then, the target player comes in and gets to choose which role they want – server or passer.
The “big” game goes for 3 minutes total (or however long the coach wants to run the drill). The overall winner is the player with the most total points. The winner moves up, loser moves down.
