In these beginner volleyball drills you will first work on improving your setting accuracy and your passing accuracy while passing the ball to yourself about 4-5 feet in the air then raising your hands up quickly to set the ball to your partner.
You will first work on improving your setting accuracy and your passing accuracy before moving onto working on reading, anticipating and moving to balls that don't come right to you.
These steps are things to work on to physically pass or set the ball to your target.
When you first learn the game you'll find out quickly that in competition there's alot of visual work you have to be good at which is called reading the play in order to anticipate where the ball is going to be so you know where to place yourself so you can get to that spot before the ball does.
So while working on basic technical skills in these beginner volleyball drills, you will also work on visual and analyzing the game in this drill.
You do that by watching your partner's body language--their legs, their shoulders but MOST IMPORTANTLY the angle of their platform..you do this quickly as they are about to and as they contact the ball.
Then...you bring your eyes back to the ball while moving quickly to the spot where the ball is going to come down so you can be under the ball when it comes down...which makes it easier for you to pass the ball right back to your partner.
In other words, you are working on being in the RIGHT place at the RIGHT time before you have to pass or set the ball back to your partner.
Read it. Believe it. Move.

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.
Many of these beginner volleyball drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.
If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
