Team Concept: Octopus Drill

Objectives:

To give team repetitions in free ball transition and defense.
  1. Coach initiates drill with free ball or a down ball.
  2. If the team receiving the free ball wins the drill waves through, and the team at the net scores a point.
  3. If the team not receiving the free ball wins the point, they get a point and the front row of the receiving team and the back row of the non - receiving team flip - flop positions.
  4. The team of three that get X points wins.
Diagram Key:
C = Coach   X = Player

Variations:

Give free or down ball to other side to initiate drill, emphasis changes to stopping free ball plays, you get points for winning plays.
