1 Iowa Volleyball Coaches Clinic Warm Up Games and Drill Ideas Diane Lichtenberg- Bettendorf High School Besides preparing the players bodies for the physical demands the game of volleyball requires, there are so many other beneficial elements the warm up can add to your practice. Some of these include: Ball Control Variety Conditioning Cooperation Communication Competition Movement Fun Short lines, small groups, lots of balls, and lots of contacts are always preferred. Whether you are working with one ball per person, or groups of 16 players, here are some warm up ideas. Fun Warm-up Games- Silly Elimination Games- Chicken on a Hill- Piggy Back, Lovers Leap, Chicken on a Hill Mingle- (Clumper) Circle the Wagon Relays- Rock-Bridge, Back to Back- Feet to Feet Alphabet Relay Ball movement Relays Group movement Relay- incorporate problem solving Tag Games- Freeze Tag, Blob Tag, Sharks and Minnows Movement Drills- Traveling Jump Rope- Move from sideline to sideline of the volleyball court doing the following jumps Bunny hop Bunny hop side to side Right foot only Left Foot only Stride jump Lateral stride jump Double jumps Lateral jump Skipping carioca Whistle Drill- This drill is good to review base, release, and coverage positions without a ball. Have your players get into their defensive positions on the court. The scenario will be set up before the whistles begin. i.e. you ll be defending a left side attack and then setting your left front attacker. ON the whistle, all players yell base, ON the next whistle have them yell release and they will release to their defensive position for a LF attack. ON the next whistle, they will transition to offense and yell transition. ON the last whistle, they will yell cover and cover their LF attacker. You can do this for any scenario and we will go through several. 1

2 Lead Up Games- (6 person minimum) Queen of the Court- 2 s, 3 s, 4 s Speed Ball 2 s, 3 s - Same format as Queen of the Court with the winning team going to the championship side and loser goes off the court. I like to do this 2 vs. 2. Round 1- Throwing and catching. The team that lets the ball hit the floor or throws it out of bounds or into the net is out. Round 2- One contact. The ball must be returned with one contact. Round 3- Two contacts Round 4- Three contacts If the ball doesn t go over on the designated number of contacts, the group is out. Groups of 1- In place ball control- Spread out around the gym and work on ball control. Hand position, arm position. Set to self, Pass to self Set Low, Med, high to self Continuous Set and sit down/ set and stand up Continuous Set and lay down/ set and stand up If your space or equipment is limited you can have a partner and switch off. China Drill- Each person has their own ball. Have all of the players start at one end of the gym or side of the court (side A) and move to the other side of the court (side B) using various movement patterns and different volleyball skills. i.e Pass to self while running, skipping, shuffling, walking, carioca, side slide etc. Go the length of the court with each different movement. *Variations-Set to self, Pass one/ Set one, Pass/Set/roll shot To increase the speed, give them a certain number of contacts they can use to get from point A to B. Going the length of the basketball court, I might say they can only have 5 setting contacts. Next they will try with 4 contacts, then 3. See if anyone can make it from one end of the gym to the other in 2 contacts. The ball cannot hit the floor so the players have to run faster. Put the ball between the legs and jump down. (bunny hop) Groups of 2- Ball Control Circuit- 1 ball/2 people Do each activity for time of for a designated number of repetitions Setting- Catch and Toss Set from 5, 10, 15, 25 Back Set- (set self, back set partner) Side Set (facing R and Facing L) Jump Set Short-Deep (1 person moving) 2

3 Ball Control Circuit cont. Passing Catch and Toss from 10, 20 Low and Flat 5 apart Regular Passes 10, 20 Side to side- alternate R & L Pass, ½ turn backwards pass to partner Short-Deep (1 person moving) Pepper Series 2 contact 2-4x5 sets Hit-Dig One person Hits while the other digs, after 5 contacts switch jobs 3 contact Set-Hit-Dig 3 Contact Jump Pepper Jump to set, jump to attack, Dig (DO NOT jump) Dig self, set self, Hit at partner Dig Self/ Hit at Partner Other Variations- Dig/Dig tip Hit at partner- They Dig and then run forward for a tipped ball Dig/Dig ball off block- Hit at Partner- They run forward and play a ball off of the block- hitter puts arms up in block position and blocks the ball down Pass self- pass partner- while your partner is passing to self- run up and hit them on the knee pad, hustle back to base and then they pass to you and come forward and touch your knee pad while you are passing to self. Set self, partner holds up fingers and you have to tell them how many, then set to partner Moving in 2 s- Everyone stands on the baseline of the volleyball court. You and a partner are facing one another and are about 10 apart. You will pass the ball back and forth while moving to the other baseline of the volleyball court. On the way down you have to pass the volleyball over the net and then duck under the net to get to the other side. If you lose control of the ball, you have to do a penalty ( 2 push ups, roll, etc.). Once all groups get to the other side, go back. On the way back, the ball has to travel under the net. You can do this with setting, pass/set/roll shot, etc. 1 vs. 1 over the net competition Shorten the court and play 1 vs. 1 (Each person can have 3 contacts) Groups of 3- Set and Follow XX X One ball- start the ball on the side with 2 people, set ball across to single person then follow your ball and go behind the person you just passed to. This is continuous back and forth. Variations- pass and follow, pass/set/tip and follow, pass/set/roll shot and follow, pass/set/hit and follow. (follow after each single contact) 3

4 3 person pepper- tips, hits, roll shots- you can specify or have them do all three In a triangle- 1 person sets, 1 person hits, 1 person digs After 10 contacts per position, rotate. Rotate to all 3 positions. In a Line- X1 X2 X3 X2 sets the ball to X1, X1 hits the ball to X3. X3 digs the ball to X2. X2 sets the ball to X3, X3 hits the ball at X1. Repeat for designated time or contacts and rotate. Shuffle Passing Drill- 2 Balls, 3 people A B X A and B each have a ball. They will toss their ball to X, one at a time, X will pass and then shuffle back to receive another toss. 10x and switch Variations- from toss, down ball, hit, tipped ball Can do this with a forearm pass, overhead pass, dig, overhead dig, run thru, roll Figure 8 setting- 1 Ball, 3 people X1 X2 X3 X1 and X3 are stationary, X2 is the mover X1 sets to X2, X2 sets to X1 and then runs around X1 back to their starting position X1 sets a long ball to X3 X3 sets to X2, X2 sets to X3 and then runs around X3 back to the starting position. You can have them make a certain number of Figure 8 patterns or do this for time. Groups of 4- Drop and Drive Pepper- All 4 players are on the same side of the net, on one court. You will have a setter, hitter, and 2 diggers. Setter sets to the hitter, hitter hits at either of the diggers, diggers dig to setter, repeat. Emphasis is placed on the diggers defensive movement- moving from base to release and digging. While the setter is setting the ball, the digger is dropping into their defensive position and then driving to the ball to dig. Rotate after 10 hits. Over the net pepper- 2 vs 2 You can make the court smaller. I usually use ½ the width. You can also use the 10 line as the base line if you want to start with tips and roll shots. Start the ball with a toss or set over the net. The other side has 3 contacts to get the ball over. As soon as they send the ball over, the front and back people switch places. I like to start with free balls only for 1-2 minutes and then progress. Ball control and communication are keys. Free balls only Tips and roll shots only Back row attacking Front row attacking 4

5 Down the line- have the 2 teams straight across the net from each other Cross court Pepper- have the 2 teams diagonally across from one another Dig/Catch- (The Pit) Two active players. Coach hits the ball at one of the players, They have to dig it and the other player has to catch the dig in order to get a point. When the pair gets the designated number of points their turn is over. Can be adjusted to the level of the players. This is supposed to be a very tough drill. You can see who your good communicators and competitors are in this drill. Groups of 5 or More Run thrus- You can do this in a continuous loop or have half of the group help run the drill and the other half do the drill. Start the line of diggers in the Right back position- Coach tosses the ball to their left side and they have to run through and pass the ball to the target area. After passing, shag, run to handing line, hand the coach a ball and return to the passing line. Movement patterns that can be used: Right to Left Left to Right Deep to Short LF- transition off the net and pick up a ball to middle of court or short RF- transition off the net and pick up a ball to middle or short court You can tailor this to improve any weaknesses in your defense. 3 Man Weave Drill- Group of 3 standing in a single file line in the middle back. Toss a ball to the left side and the first person digs to target and goes to end of the line. Send the 2 nd ball to the right and the 2 nd person digs and goes to end of line. Keep alternating sides that you throw to. After the dig, the digger goes to the end of the line. They will end up alternating sides each dig. The coach can hit, tip, make them roll, run thru, overhead dig, etc. Do this for time or a certain number of perfect contacts. 3 In the Back Court- 3 players in their back row defensive position. Person running the drill hits the ball at one of the players and they dig it back. Hitter hits continuously until the ball is out of control. You can have all players switch out after the ball gets away or have the digger switch out after they dig. You can add a setter to this. (5 person pepper) Tip Weave-3 players in their back row defensive position. The same 3 will stay until they lose control of the ball. If the coach hits the ball at the MB person, all players stay frozen in the same position. If the coach hits the ball to the LB or RB, that digger will switch with the MB person. LB and RB start squeezed in, in their base position. Coach uses a lot of variety when hitting. As soon as the group loses control of the ball, they rotate out and the next 3 players come in. Fast paced drill. (Lots of movement and communication.) 5

6 Circle Switch or Stay-This is a variation of the tip weave drill, more movement is added. If the ball is hit to the MB- everyone STAYS. If the ball is hit to the RB or LB, the digger SWITCHES with the MB. If the ball is tipped to the LB or MB, all 3 players CIRCLE one position. (circle clockwise if the LB digs and counterclockwise if the RB digs) Once this group loses control of the ball, 3 new people come in. Serve Receive Butterfly Drill- Set players up on both sides of the net. You need a passer in the LB, target in the RF, and Server in the RB. Server sends ball to LB, LB passes to RF, RF catches the ball and moves to the RB to serve to the LB on the other side of the net. Everyone follows their ball. Variations- ½ court throw, ½ court serve, full court throw/serve Pass, Overhead Pass, Pass a ball served deep, pass a ball served short You can work on your weak areas by targeting them during this drill UNI Drill- 3 passers and a target with a passer ready to come in. Server serves, passer passes and goes to target. New passer comes into that open spot. There will be a new passer in after each serve. You can do this on both sides of the net at the same time. Go for time or a goal of 25 perfect passes. 3 Person Passing Drill- Instead of rotating after each serve, everyone stays frozen until they get 5 good passes. Rotate 1 position so one new passer comes in and start again. You can add penalties. i.e. if they get aced they lose one point. If they get aced because of Lack of Communication, lose all points, etc. You can also make the drill about the final outcome. i.e. You need 5 aggressive attacks to rotate. Now they have to pass, set, and attack. 50 in 5- The team has to get 50 good passes in 5 minutes. At the end of the time, if they didn t reach their goal, they do sprints or some other penalty for the number of passes short of 50. Serving- Serve and Run 31- The object of the drill is to earn 31 points. You do this by hitting different zones on the court. In front of the 10 line is worth 3 points, the back 5 x 5 square of each corner is worth 5 points, any where else on the court is worth 1 point. The players start on one side of the net. They serve the ball, chase their ball, and serve that same ball from the other side of the net. They keep counting their points until they reach 31. This is a great way to work on conditioning and add the fatigue factor into the serving routine. Make sure the players arms are warmed up before starting this drill. Around the World- 6

7 Divide your group into 2 teams. One team will start on side A and the other on side B. You can use a chair, hula hoop, or dot as the marker. One person from side A will take their marker to zone 1 on side B and one person from side B will take their marker to zone 1 on side A. The other players start serving. The person on the marker has to catch a served ball in order to advance to zone 2. The server that served the ball that was caught takes the place of the person on the marker. You have to make it Around the World, from zone 1-6. The first team to do this successfully wins the game. I usually have them go around the world twice to finish the game. If you use a chair as the marker, the person has to sit in the chair and catch the ball. If you use a hula hoop or dot, the person has to stand on the dot or in the hoop and catch the ball. Partner Zone Serving- Everyone on the team gets a partner. They line up on opposite sides of the net from one another. They must serve to designated zones for a certain amount of time. I usually go for 1 minute in each position. Count the number of serves, as a team, that go to the proper areas. The servers will serve from zone 1 to 1, 5 to 5, 5 to 1, 1 to 5, short serves, jump serves. You can designate any type of serve or any certain areas that you would like. The group with the most accurate number of serves wins the drill. Team Drills- Coop- 4 vs 4, 5 vs. 5, or 6 vs. 6 I usually go 2 minutes for each round. This is cooperative play. Coach sends a ball into play. You need 3 hits on a side. Every time the team sends the ball over the net, rotate one position. Round 1- Free balls only 2- Tips and Roll shots 3- Back Row attack 4- Everything is legal You can freeze your setter in the Right Front and rotate around them or freeze them in the Right Back and rotate around them. If you have more than 12 players, divide them up equally and they will enter into a designated position. LF or MB Columbia Drill Same as the Coop Drill except you have only 5 players on each side of the court. You do not have a middle front player. Extra players enter in from designated area. You can freeze the setter or let everyone set. 7
