These volleyball bumping drills that players do in our semi private training classes and as homework to do at home. 

It takes partner passing and ball control practice to the next level. 

This type of drill can only be done if your ball control skills are on point. That means you can repeatedly pass to the target you are aiming for…without making them move.



One of the big differences between a JV player and a varsity player besides your ability to control the ball is the ability to play the game at a faster speed while still maintaining ball control and accuracy. 

In order to play at a faster pace, it helps to do these types of ball handling and control drills that force you to practice thinking faster and making faster decisions, while controlling the ball to your intended target. 



In these volleyball bumping drills the players are working on 

  • team communication
  • problem solving
  • quick decision making
  • listening (This is huge! When you play on a team)
  • improves your trusting skills all while maintaining good form and proper technique
