3 Ball Transition Beach Volleyball Drill – 3 For Offense, 2 For Defense to Score with Pedro Brazao (2 Videos)
This beach volleyball drill features a serve and two free balls. This drill focuses on both defense and offense and put allot of pressure on players to consistently side out.
This defense drill is focused on players starting position of defense and not leaning as this can make it extremely difficult to change directions. This is a simple drill where the coach hits 3 balls, two balls for the blockers and 1 ball for the defender behind the block. The hits to the defender start originally as a line or cut shot but are modified over time. Also the blocking position is changed from line to angle and the number of hits the coach can hit is increased as the drill progresses.
This is another great warm up drill which focuses on covering the hitter as well as lifting the ball after you cover the hit and getting back and ready to spike. This drill works on allot of beach skills that are often ignored but by doing it during the warm up it allows the players to work on skills while building into their hitting.
This is an incredibly fun and challenging beach volleyball drill that will warm up players, improve skills, improve team communication and finally get players heads in the game of volleyball. The drill felt next too impossible when it started but by the time it finished all 4 players were juiced and excited for what was an incredible practice to follow which only built on this great first drill to start!
