im not quite sure if this is what you're looking for but this may help you: a very good drill in volley ball is to get in to a circle with at least 4 other people, some one needs to throw it in high and all you do is pass the ball. when you hit it make sure it goes high and in the middle. if someone passes it and it hits the wall play it off the wall, it is just like playing it off the net. When the ball drops to 5-10 push ups or 10 crunches or more if you so wish. See how many hits you can get with out dropping the ball! GOOD LUCK!!
