DRILL OBJECTIVE
Before starting this drill players must first
understand the concept of ‘in system’ and
‘out of system’ play.
If you visualize two lines running
perpendicular to the net from each player –
any ball played within these two lines (and
forward) is considered ‘in system’ while any
ball played outside of these two lines is
considered ‘out of system’
‘In system’ is good and out of system’ is bad.
The objective of this drill is to keep the ball ‘in
system’ as it allows for more control and is a
great concept for beginner players.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
The athlete or coach serves balls at a
receiving pair on the opposite side of the net.
The athletes attempt to play out the ball with
a conventional pass, set and spike but the
coach pays close attention to whether the
ball stayed ‘in system’ or not.
Athletes can get 1 point for every play ‘in
system’ and perhaps and additional point for
spiking the ball inside the opposition court.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Serve tougher and in particular to the
sidelines.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Don’t pass the ball to your partner – pass the ball
forward and slightly inside.
2 When the ball is passed out of system off the serve,
athletes need to focus on bringing the ball back ‘in
system’ rather than over playing the ball and loosing
even more control.
3 If the pass is poor the athlete needs to ‘follow the
pass’ in order to make the job of setting up the
attack easier for their partner.
