Improving your game means practice--and practice means drills. University of Cincinnati's head volleyball coach Reed Sunahara shares two drills from their successful practice program.
- Two sides of six players in base position ready to play
- Coaches alternate entering seven free balls
- Team that win's the majority of free balls (5-2, 4-3 etc) gets to chose whether to serve or receive to keep those points
- If they win the serve/serve receive ball, they keep the points
- Game is played to 21 points, and thus "Vegas 21"
- Two sides of six players
- First ball is entered by a side with a serve and played out
- Second ball goes to the serving team
- Third ball goes to the serving team
- Final ball goes to the receiving team
- Game is played to 15 points
- Points are scored as follows: All four balls = 2 points, 3 out of 4 =1 point and a split is a wash
- First side to 15 points wins
