Youth Volleyball Drills


High school coaches know that the success of their volleyball program depends on several items. One of those things is developing players at a young age. This is the time of year that many of you may be running camps for youngsters. In the two video clips below you will see a handful of youth volleyball drills that you might find useful in you summer camp or youth program. These drills are designed for the young and/or beginning player. They are very basic and simple drills that help the beginner learn the basic components to key volleyball skills.

You may or may not find them useful, but at the very least they may give you some ideas about how to better construct some of your youth volleyball drills.

The first video details an eight drill sequence designed to teach a young player how to pass the ball. The second video shows three similar attacking drills using different types of balls (nerf, whiffle and tennis)

The youth volleyball drills in these clip are conducted by John Sample, Creator of VolleyTotz, President of Texas Advantage Volleyball,Junior Volleyball Association (JVA) Board of Directors.
