In this series of videos Tom Black and LMU Women’s Sand Volleyball Team do a wave drill with a serve and a virus. This drill consist of a serve followed by the serving team receiving a ball that needs to be hit over on 1. If the serving teams wins two balls they rotate over in a wave to the receiving side of the court.
A few advantages of this drill include the game like nature, plus the increased reps with a game like situation with the virus ball.
