DRILL DESCRIPTION
Passers start in ready position on the left or
right side of the court.
The coach or athlete then tosses the ball to
simulate a pass and the setter comes in and
sets the ball towards the catcher who in this
drill is the target.
If there is only one athlete setting then they
will not have time to get all the way back to
the original passing position.
If you have more than one athlete setting
then they can cycle through from the ready
position.
Athletes should always practice setting on
both sides of the court and both sides of the
net.
Depending on what the athlete is working on
the thrower could simulate either a perfect or
not so perfect pass.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Change around the toss location to
ensure the setter gets practice
setting all types of passes.
The coach or athlete can toss the
ball up with spin to make it more
difficult for the setter.
This drill can be done with 1 ball or 2
balls or even 3 balls for a challenge.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Feet and shoulders should be facing (squaring up)
to the target.
2 Athletes need to be aware of the wind and how it
affects the ball both before they contact it and after
they contact it.
