This is a great beach volleyball warm-up drill for spiking and attacking. when you're starting to get your arm loose on the court or if you want to get some spiking and accuracy reps while you're at home or away from a volleyball court.
It won't get you any game-like reps, but it's really important to be able to control the volleyball and incorporate vision.
Toss to yourself but you must make sure that you toss well above the top of the antenna. After you follow where the ball is with your eyes, you need to drop them or focus them on your partner (or a target on a wall) and then return your gaze to the ball.
When the ball that you tossed reaches its peak, your partner is going to put one hand anywhere they want. Your job is to reach to the top of your swing and try to snap the ball to their hand, hitting the target on a straight line drive as if you were throwing a dart.
Your partner just needs to catch the ball and then it's their turn to toss, look and hit. It's your turn to show them a target after their toss.
So, they toss above the top of the antenna, find the ball, find the target, find the ball, and snap to that hand that's open. This is a great drill for learning how to hit a volleyball with vision. Good luck. Get accurate, Robin Hood style!
