Volleyball Spiking Drills

Any athlete wants to improve, even if they can outdo everyone around them. Somewhere, there is always someone better than you, and your goal might be to be the best, or even improve. Drills teach good fundamentals, and encourage confidence while sharpening skills.

Before each drill, replay in your head what you want to do. Think of your feet moving, arms hitting, and get ready to go. Afterwards, verify if you did it the way you wanted, or had flaws in your technique.

A coach or helper can stand on a chair or bleachers, and drop the ball. Run forward and spike it. Your helper (if not hit by you or the ball) can watch the ball or you, and give tips and advice. Sometimes flaws are easier to see from a distance, instead of by yourself.

Have someone on the other side of the net, and spike the ball back and forth to each other.

Timing can be everything, and is one of the harder things to change. Some coaches use spacing to correct this. If players hit too soon, move them back, and forward to correct slower hitters. If timing problems persist, have too fast players learn to hesitate slightly, and do speed drills with slower players.

Have more than one person toss balls (gently!) At them and let them hit as many as they can. An entire team can take turns, putting pressure on one player, if they are great friends, and can give advice to each other. Make sure a mature adult figure is around to keep arguments from breaking out.

Use your imagination to encourage your players, and think up drills. Be open to new ideas. If it works, it's good.
