Are You Teaching Skills or Choreography?

I see a lot of volleyball drills in the socials and some of them seem wonderful. There are people moving, working hard, with players interacting in carefully choreographed ways.

It got me thinking about drills in terms of: are you actually teaching the game, or are you teaching choreography of something completely unrelated to the game? Those who have read much of anything I've written would know which side of the fence I come down on.......

This one is beautifully organised. 

This one is great - bunny hops then setting

This one is a classic S&C drill in that it tries to replicate the sport but has no relationship at all

As always, you can improve at volleyball doing these drills, but do you think it is possible to do it more efficiently?
