These are the best youth volleyball drills

Who are the best?

This month we launched Youth1’s “Best of,” to acknowledge excellence and hopefully aid parents, coaches and athletes in making sports-related decisions.

Every month our staff, network of experts and readers will decide on the best of the best in equipment, training and competition.

Volleyball fans, this month we looked for the best volleyball drills. Our "Best Youth Volleyball Drills" came from a group of four finalists and the best youth volleyball drills are…

1. Spiking Drills:

Spiking drills allow players to develop on offensive and defensively simultaneously. These drills train players to quickly use defensive technique in an offensive manner to prevent there their opponent from scoring. 

2. Blocking Drills:

Blocking drills are intended to prepare athlete to prevent attack hits from their opponent by means of deflection, player coverage between blockers, and other well timed defensive techniques.

3. Passing Drills:

Passing drills are used to train players to develop control of the ball when passing using basic skills. These drills set the foundation for effective passing, and fundamental for success on the court.

4. Game-Like Volleyball Drill:

Game-Like Volleyball Drills are designed for players of all ages and technique levels. This drill aims to develop an athlete’s technique and skill set while playing in game-like situation, which mimics the game as much as possible.
