This is a fun, competitive drill that makes a great warmup for any skill level. It works well for getting the players moving and communicating.
# of Players: 4+
Can play 1v1 or 2v2.
Divide group into two teams. One team on one side of the net. The other team on the other side of the net.
A free ball is tossed to one side. After a team passes the ball over the net, the next player replaces them on the court.
1v1 looks a lot like a full court shuffle pass drill.
In 2v2, each person on the team has to touch the ball.
* The last touch has to be a down ball.
* With 1v1, each player can have 3 touches
* Advanced groups can start with a serve
