Let's Vollis! A Fun Sand Volleyball Drill
By Laura Ratto, CEO, The Volleyball Network The Drill for this month is a fun drill that is near and dear to my heart - it's name is VOLLIS! There are several variations of this drill and it can be played with anywhere from 2-8 players/court. 2-Player VollisEach person starts on one side of the court (court can be cut in half based on skill level and specific rules). The ball is initiated with an underhand toss or serve (easy and to the person on the other side). Players can only contact the ball with a forearm pass. The strategy of the game is to put the ball where the opposing player isn't on the other court. If you have more than two people, then the players split up evenly on each side and wait for their turn to come onto the court. Players can rotate, either as soon as they send the ball back over the net, OR at the end of a rally. Warm-up games can go to 11, 15, or 21 depending on the number of people and how long you want to do the game (I suggest a game to 15). Having trouble viewing the diagram below? Click here.
