  • Setup

    Four players on each side, with three passers/hitters and one setter (who starts at the net). One player (C) starts by feeding the ball over the net.
  • Step 1

    One of the three passers receives the ball and passes it to the setter. The setter sets any of the three players a back-court hit, and then swaps positions with that player.
    Emphasise that the hits must be back-court hits. Players must not take off beyond the attack line.
    Emphasise that the drill is about ball control and maximising repititions, not about 'winning'.
    Communication is key - passes should always be accompanied by a 'mine' call.
  • Step 2

    The hitter hits the ball over the net and becomes the new setter. The other team repeats the same steps, and the drill continues.
