Fast Gun

Fast Gun is a drill to improve hand quickness from Ken DeHart. It appears in PTR's DVD Tennis Tips
No doubt he is a beast at the net
From Around The World

Player stands at net in volley position with racquet in non-dominant hand. Player slaps side of leg twice with dominant hand. As ball is being fed, player transfers racquet to dominant hand and hits volley. Ken notes this motion of moving the hand forward in a shooting motion is preferred when volleying, rather than the tendency of many players to move the hand/racquet laterally.

The next two blog posts are also volley improvement suggestions from Ken. Put them all together for a fun volley lesson for your students.
