Clinician: Paco Labrador, head women’s volleyball coach at Wittenberg University. Purpose: To promote ball control and skill development in a more compact environment. How it works: This active, cooperative ball-control drill uses just half of the court with three players lined up on one sideline facing another three on the opposite sideline. A ball is tossed to the first group which attempts to dig, set and hit it at the three players along the opposite sideline.
What Dan suggests is varying the drills daily and using specific drills for specific skills you want to improve! The goal is to do these drills for 20-35 minutes at the start of practice. This warmup drill is the: half court 20 20 20 volleyball drill. You can see this drill also done with the 2012 NAIA championship Concordia team.

Depending on how much time you want to spend, you could also combine the concept of “Tip and Chip” with a “ Half Court Tournament ” and keep your players entertained for 20-30 minutes. VOLLEYBALL WARM-UP DRILL: TIP AND CHIP. 3. JOUSTING PRACTICE. Depending on WHO your players are, this may or may not work.
These drills are great for developing ball control skills. Divide the court in half from endline to centerline. 1) First Progression: Start with 3 hits on a side (all bumps). Players rotate position after the ball goes over the net. 2) Second Progression: Bump, set, bump. 3) Third Progression: Bump, set, set.
I mix in fun volleyball drills after coaching volleyball for 4 - 5 straight weeks using technique based drills to work on individual ball control and team court work. After years of coaching volleyball I believe that sometimes the best practices are unstructured practices.
