These volleyball partner passing drills our 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.
Beck and Kate kill it when I challenge them to a passing patience drill.
(Volume up) Touch the Floor-floor-shoulder-shoulder-quarter turn and back... then pass a free ball to your partner...using precise passing technique...
...so no swinging the arms above the belly button. no standing up and no shoulders behind your hips...
How many things can you do before passing a free ball to your passing partner .. ..while keeping good passing technique ... AND getting the ball to your targets head.. without making them move?
Lmk .. dm me...
Floor-floor-shoulder-shoulder-quarter turn and back - then pass... watch how much time you have before you pass a free ball..,
Had some fun today with Katelyn ... adding some variety to our partner passing drills with Becky
Just working on being patient.. and not rising up to pass but seeing how much time you have ...before passing the ball.. if you quicken your upper and lower body movements.
Volleyball drills, although some time monotonous are
Whether you do drills at home by yourself, or doing them in practice with your teammates, it's best to get in the habit of setting mini goals for yourself to reach in order to complete each drill.
For example, let's say you have to get 50 perfectly passed balls to the target before stopping one drill and going on to the next. Not only will you discipline yourself to perform the volleyball drills correctly, but you will replicate the pressure you will feel in a game-like situation when you absolutely have to do the skill right.
When you get in the habit of practicing game-like situations, then when you find yourself in an actual game, you have already prepared for that particularly tense and pressure-filled situation.
Here are drills for players to start improving ball control.
Start by passing the ball back and forth. One person is on the ten foot line and the other three feet inside the end line or back court line. . . The person closest to the net, on the ten foot line, is the control “target” partner.
. . This is the “target” person who never moves and where the partner who is working needs to get the ball to. . . If you’re the “working” partner then your job is to get the ball to the head of the “target” without making the target move.
If the “target” partner has to move more than one step to get to the ball that you are passing, setting, or digging to them then you need to improve your ball control . . This is a volleyball player’s target practice.
Being able to get the ball right to the target you are aiming for…without the target moving… is what you are practicing to do. Get the ball to the target…without the target having to move. . .
To practice moving laterally with quick foot work to your right and to your left the “control” partner passes the ball to the right of the “working partner’ who has to take a shuffle step to the right to pass the ball . .
The control partner passes a high ball 6-8 feet in the air. The “working partner” takes 2-3 steps forward to get feet and hips to the ball and passes the ball to the control partner after which they back pedal 2 -3 big steps backwards to pass a deep ball from the “control partner”.
The goal is to pass short and deep balls to the head of the target partner without making them move at all. . .
The control partner passes a high ball to themself then to the working partner who passes a high ball to themselves then does a half turn to back bump the ball to the target partner…without making them move. .

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.
Many of these volleyball practice 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.
