Volleyball Tip of the Week: Eclipse Wash Drill

By Junior Volleyball Association, 10/11/18, 9:15PM CDT


Arrowhead High School in Hartland, Wisconsin, shares the eclipse drill that is a 6v6 wash drill. Teams play to 25, but the score is 15-20.

The team with 15 points receives free balls from the other team with the objective to score and "eclipse" the winning team by scoring 10 points before they score five. The coach bounces the entry ball to team to free-ball it over. This drill can be modified to receiving serve or defending a particular attack, in order to work on a particular aspect of the game.
