Diagram for the volleyball drill 'Warming up with synchronous volleyball'

A and B underhand serve simultaneously and step onto the court to catch the spiked balls. C and D pass towards each other diagonally, set the balls diagonally, and spike them to A and B.

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.


  • A and B catch the balls using an upside-down cone.
  • Instead of serving, A and B play the ball over the net using their feet.
