Volleying (25 mins)

Organisation:

14 players - 7 in red bibs; 7 in uniform placed in pairs (1 red with 1 blue, etc)

Markers placed approximately 5 yards apart, and approximately 5 yards in distance from your partner

Numerous balls, intially a ball between 2.

Drill: 2 main types of volleying skill

Side foot volley:

Blue player feeds the ball toward their partner using their hands (red player). They use any foot they like to side foot a volley back to their partner.

The aim of this drill is to volley the ball back into the hands of their partner, showing good control and touch.

After 6 attempts each, swap roles

Coaching points:

Feeder - good, accurate throw underarm to give their partner a chance to perform the skill

Volleying player - Light on their toes ready to move and get in line with the flight of the ball; position slightly side-on; eyes focused on the ball; strike the ball with the inside part of your foot; ankle locked and strong; delicate touch and control; arms out for balance; head over the ball

Progressions:

- Volleying players to move and touch one of the cones either side of them, then return to the centre and volley the ball back to their partner

- Volleying players to turn and face away from their partners, who call 'turn' as they feed the ball. They turn and have to re-adjust their position and volley the ball back.

- Control the ball with the knee, chest, foot etc and then perform the skill, even if on the half-volley

Instep 'laces' volley:
