Don't overlook 2-on-6 as a skill-teaching game. Although it seems grossly unfair at first, the game teaches huge amounts about reading setters and hitters, making plays on defense, communication with teammates, acccurate passing, and nearly every other phase of the game.
Have the 6-player team serve, trying to get the ball within a step or two of one of the 2-player teammates. Don't have the 2-player team try to block. Rather, get down and play defense.
It's a great drill, fun and enormously helpful in developing defensive toughness.
