Coaches are always looking for new drills. Here are two drills you can add to your coaching toolbox: Dog House & Fox Exchange Drills
In the video below Penny Isenbart, head coach at Kit Carson High School (CO), provides an explanation of these two drills that she utilizes in her practices.
Dog House Drill
This is primarily a serve/serve receive drill but also allows for points to be played out.
The drill is played with 3-4 teams of three players each. One team begins in the “dog house”. One team serves to the other and the point is played out. The winning team stays and the losing team goes to the “dog house”. The team in the “dog house” comes out and plays. Each team keeps track of their points and you play for time.
This a great warm-up drill as it gets the players moving. The drill begins with multiple teams of three. Place two or more teams of three on each side of the net. The first two teams step up and start the point. Each time the ball crosses the net a new team of three “tags in”. Keep track of points and play for time.
