Long time youth volleyball coach and president of the Eastside Volleyball Club, Tim Vande Schraaf, helps young athletes with passing techniques and encourages them to call for the ball. Parents can get involved in this drill which develops their understanding of the game too.
Because the players are young, expectations are not high based on their developing abilities so methods of moving the drill along are discussed. The drill should be run in both directions so players get accustomed to moving both ways. A variation on the drill can use overhead passing.
