Volleyball Wall Passing And Setting Drills Improve Ball Control Skills

Doing volleyball wall passing and setting drills at home, in practice or open gym are ways to improve your volleyball passing and ball handling skills on the court. 



Volleyball wall passing drills need to be done daily with a goal of at least 250 - 500 reps of various drills to keep you technique, ball handling and ball control sharp! 


Pick a brick, or mark an X in chalk ..no matter what anybody walking by should be able to see exactly which spot you are passing to..over and over.⁠

Do 3 sets of 100 five feet from the wall ..then step back two feet and repeat. Then step back and repeat.⁠ Complete 300 passing reps.



Wall setting drills can be done to soften your fingers when they touch the ball which you can do while sitting on a ball. 




These volleyball wall passing drills are designed to help you


I like to start with a warmup passing drill where you go against the wall

Your Wall Passing Ready Position


When passing to the wall here are where your body parts need to be: 

Feet

  • one of your feet is 1-2 inches in front of the other and both feet are shoulder width apart

Knees

  • you're in what we call a "loaded" position with your knees slightly bent - this is an athletic stance which allows you to move quickly to your right or left if you need to

Hips

  • when passing the ball your hips need to be below the level of the oncoming ball

  • Take two big steps away from the wall
  • Pick a spot on the wall that's 2-3 feet above your head.
  • Use a piece of tape or chalk or identify the brick that you are going to pass EVERY ball to.
  • Start passing to that spot.
  • Every time the ball doesn't get to that spot, stop and start again.

Do not finish until you've passed 25 balls to that spot. They don't have to be in a row at first. Just get 25 no matter how long it takes.

Volleyball Wall Passing Drills
7 Keys To Be Working On




With this volleyball wall passing drill you should be working on: 





  • keeping your platform location - a ball's width away from your body (your platform shouldn't be held too high nor should it be too close to your body - for perfect platform location you should be able to fit a volleyball under your armpits)
  • keeping "strong shoulders" which help your straight arms present a flat passing surface called "your platform" which is used to guide the ball to the target
  • prevent your feet from getting too far apart
