Here are some youth volleyball drills that you can do at home or in practice with a friend or teammate you are working out with at home.Here are some youth volleyball drills that you can do at home or in practice with a friend or teammate you are working out with at home


Here are some youth volleyball drills that you can do at home or in practice with a friend or teammate you are working out with at home or on their own or even during an open gym at your school.

I get requests all the time, especially in my Instagram DMs, from middle school and high school players like yourself for ball control drills that can be done to improve ball control skills. 


Youth Volleyball Drills Half Court-Full Court Partner Ball Control Drill


Here's how I set up our "Half Court-Full Court Partner Ball Control Drill"



This partner drill has two players starting on the same side of the court, 

First you dig to yourself, set to yourself, hit a down ball to your partner.

After we get a rhythm doing this back and forth for a few exchanges…then…

…the partner at the net after doing their hitting dig-set-hit combination

-turns and runs under the net and quickly turns back to face their partner…while calling for the ball that’s hit over the net to them….and they do their dig-set-hit combination.

-Once they hit the ball, they follow the ball. ..running back under the net so they are on the same side again. 

One person can travel back and forth at a time taking 4-5 trips back and forth under the net or players can alternate going back and forth under the net.

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

Many of these youth volleyball 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.
