If you have a volleyball:
Set it over your head. Walk around setting it over your head. Go out side and practice setting it high and low.
Passing the volleyball: throw the volleyball onto a sloped roof, wait for it to come off the roof and pass it to yourself.
If you have a high wall, ask your parent to measure the height of the wall, draw a line or place tape on the wall at 7'.5" walk 20 steps away and try to serve the ball over that line.
Teach your siblings how to play, pepper with them.
The weather is getting nicer, go to Babson and serve some volleyballs over the net on the sand court.
Do this daily, it will keep you from getting bored and you will be so strong when you get back.
You should also be looking to keep your body ready for when we get back into the gym: stay hydrated, eat healthy and make sure you stay on a sleep schedule.
