Here's another drill for all skill levels, involving a relay race, so it gets the players moving and having fun at the same time.
Divide your team into relay groups of 3 or 4, so they'll have to repeat the conditioning part of the race without a long rest period. (You can use both sides of the net for this, and run as many as 3 or 4 lines on each side.)
One by one, each player will run from the endline to the net, carrying a ball. Once at the net, the player must toss the ball into the net and then catch it on the rebound.
Once they've caught the ball, they run back and hand it to the next player in line. Repeat at least 3 times for each player.
It gets the players moving, helps with the concept of getting the ball back out of the net (especially important for beginners) and is alot of fun, too.
