While I love creating my own drills, sometimes you just need to peruse the internet and find some new inspiration.

Volleyball is a tough sport to practice by yourself, but there are ways to make it work. One of these ways is to make best friends with a wall.

Make sure this wall:

  1. Is not next to a room that needs to be quiet (baby’s room, office, etc…)
  2. Doesn’t have shelves on it or the other side. Breaking things is bad.

A jump is fine, but not necessary. If you hit with your right hand, your three-step-approach should go “left, right left.” This video shows how to do your approach if you’re not sure.
