Youth Volleyball Drills - Net Save Drill

Great drill to teach the defender to dig the ball out of the net on the return.

This can be played on both sides of the net simultaneously, thus allowing for group competition. Line up a group on each side of the net. Have a line of defenders to save the ball off the net, a setter, and a hitter outside. The coach throws a ball into the net and the defender tries to bump the ball to the setter, who sets the ball outside (just catch the ball). A point is awarded if the set ball is actually hitable. This is a difficult drill, but develops an important fundamental tool. Play a game to between 5 and 10.
