Short Court Games One Player vs One Player Make Fun Volleyball Drills
Here's one of our favorite fun volleyball drills. A great warmup drill we did last year to change up our warmup routine every 6 weeks.
Its 1 vs 1. .meaning one player vs one player...timed short court King of the Court games.
Only 1 contact per player.
After 4 - 5 weeks of tough practices leading up to an important tournament and/or series of tournaments when the brain has been functioning at high levels for long periods of time and the body is tired and hasn’t had alot of rest for several days..then I like to mix things up with short court fun volleyball drills.
On these types of practice days, even our warmup volleyball drills are competitive in order to focus on getting players to move even though they might be sore and tired.
Short court one vs one - where only one contact is allowed per side for a specific amount of time. Each player alternates “serves” by setting the ball over and the court is from ten foot line on one court to the ten foot line on the other side and the sideline is the middle of the net.
This is followed by
Short court one vs one where two contacts per side are allowed for a specific amount of time. The court size remains the same ten foot line to ten foot line.
Then we increase the court size to
Skinny medium court one vs one with two contacts allowed per side for a specific amount of time - and now we include a serve.
The size for our skinny medium court is we split the full court down the middle longwise and then the end lines are the half court line.
Short Court Games Two Players vs One Player - Fun Volleyball Drills
Remembering the opponents weak points - alot of teams when they score points against their opponent forget to remember (I've been dying to say that in a sentence) what they did in the last play that worked for them. If a tip to the middle or deep cross court scored for you why not keep doing that ..until the opposing team ..makes an adjustment. Learn to continue to do what works…until it doesn’t work anymore
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.
