6 on 6 Exchange Volleyball Drill on the Net at Uni High – Focus on Ball Control and Controlled Hitting
The 6 on 6 Exchange Volleyball Drill on the net is one of the best drills to focus on team ball control and individual controlled hitting. This drill also works on the important and often ignored volleyball skill of moving without the ball. Now considering the fact that the majority of the time players are moving without the ball it is always surprising how little coaches practice this critical skill.

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.
