I teach the volleyball sprawl in all my private training sessions and classes so players learn how to dig the volleyball then land safely to the floor after making a defensive play.
If the ball drops right in front of you, so quickly that all you have time to do is drop to the ground quickly and extend your right or left arm under the ball to keep it from hitting the floor....this is a great defensive technique which allows you to get to the floor quickly and safely after playing the ball.
In another scenario which happens often in a game...
...if the ball is about to drop in front of you on your left side or on your right and you have time to take one step in the direction of the ball...
....you take one big step in the direction of the ball and lower yourself to the floor in the direction of the ball, fully extending your body, so you land on your side.
If you're playing the ball that's about to land on your right side, then

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.
