Volleyball and basketball happen to be the two sports that require the most jumping. The approach in volleyball is one where you can go full out and nobody will step in your way so you can expect to jump your highest.

Doing small sub maximal repetitive jumps will only train your muscles to do exactly that, jump continually at a minimal heights. For volleyball training you need to focus on low reps in each set of jumps. If you are a blocker you need to focus on jump exercises that don't have an approach.

Squats are a very good exercise to build the strength of the legs. Before you move on to plyos you need to be able to do ten squats in 10 seconds with your weight on the bar.

If you can do this then you are ready to start training for speed. Bo
