  • Setup

    A coach (CO) or player stands by the net with a trolley of balls. 3 players lay next to each other on the service line. The other spare players wait off court.
  • Step 1

    Coach (CO) slaps the ball before they spike. When they slap the ball, the (A), (B) & (C) who are laying on the baseline, get to their feet.
    Make the drill harder by asking them to lay the other direction
  • Step 2

    (CO) spikes the ball towards the players.
    Spike or toss the balls in different directions each time
  • Step 3

    Players (A), (B) & (C) must work together to dig, set spike over the net and win the point.
    The coach may add a defensive digger if they wish, or a blocker
  • Step 4

    The player who spiked goes and retrieves the ball, then goes off court with the other players to wait for their turn.
    Be sure to rotate the spiker
