Purpose

This is a fun drill that helps players improve conditioning while also working on their passing and ball awareness skills.

Drill Setup

  • Mark off a 10 yard by 20 yard grid.
Star Wars Volleyball Passing Drill
Players try to avoid being hit by the ball as they run down the pitch.

How it Works

  1. Players line up along on endline.
  2. Coach stands on the sideline with several balls.
  3. Coach says go or blows whistle and players try to run from one endline to the other without getting hit by a ball.
  4. Coach kicks balls at players as they run.
  5. Any player hit with a ball becomes a passer like the coach.
  6. Drill continues until only one player is left.

Coaching Tips

  • All passes should be kept below the waist level and should not be kicked too hard. Be safe! Smaller kids can be easily tripped up and hurt.
  • Players need to be aware of the balls coming at them as well as the other players on the pitch.
