OVERVIEW: Pepper is a volleyball drill that can be played with two or more players. It is a great way to work on ball control, coordination, and communication.
Divide players into groups of two or more.
Have one player start by tossing the ball to their partner.
The partner then returns the ball with a bump or set, aiming for their partner's chest or shoulders.
The first player then repeats the process, bumping or setting the ball back to their partner.
Continue to pass the ball back and forth until one player misses the ball or makes an error.
Begin by tossing the ball to your partner with an underhand motion.
Your partner should then return the ball with either a bump or set, aiming for your chest or shoulders.
Receive the ball and return it back to your partner with either a bump or set.
Continue passing the ball back and forth in this manner.
Try to keep the ball off the ground and control it with good technique.
Vary the speed and height of your passes to challenge your partner.
If you make an error or miss the ball, switch roles with your partner and start again.
MAKE IT EASIER:
Use a larger and lighter ball to make the game easier.
Reduce the distance between players to make it easier to pass the ball.
MAKE IT HARDER:
Increase the distance between players to make it harder to pass the ball.
Use a smaller and heavier ball to make the game harder.
