Diagram for the volleyball drill 'A ball for everyone'

All four players are holding a ball. A underhand serves to B. B tosses his ball up, passes the serve to C and catches his ball again. C tosses his ball up, sets the ball passed by D, and catches his ball again. D tosses his ball up, spikes C's set and catches his ball again.

The drill is over after the first successful series. Players change positions after each failed series.

Jumping is prohibited because the drill is meant as a warming-up drill.


  • B, C, and D play A's ball by bouncing it off their ball.
  • A collects all four balls. The balls that B, C, and D are holding are also passed along after tossing them.
