To help teach and reinforce the basics of blocking technique and timing


  • Create 1 line of players outside of the court near the net
  • A coach standing on other side of the net to watch timing


  1. On the whistle, each team serves – multiple players can serve at the same time.
  2. Make sure that each team has the same number of balls.
  3. The first team to complete 10 good serves that land on the other side of the court wins.
  4. The losing team rotates off and a new team comes on.
  5. The first team to stay and win 10 points is the king of the court and should be rewarded.

Coaching Tips

  • This can become a fast paced game as players try to serve as fast as possible, make sure that they still use proper technique as
    they are under pressure and going full speed.
  • With repetition, this helps reinforce the proper serving techniques and the importance of getting the serve in.
