DRILL OBJECTIVE
Drill works on blocker retreating and then
moving to the dug ball to set up the attack.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
The coach or athlete initiates a spike as the
blocker drops off the net.
The coach or an athlete then drives the ball
to the athlete in the defensive position.
The blocker that has just retreated then sets
up their partner for the attack.
Alternatively the ball can be hit at the
retreating blocker with the athlete on defense
coming in to set up the attack.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
The coach or athlete can drive the
ball harder at the defender or
retreating athlete.
The coach or athlete can play soft
and hard shots to the defender and
retreating blocker.
The setter can indicate to their
partner where they would like the ball
to be played on attack.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Athlete should focus on using the correct footwork
when retreating and make sure that they are
stationary and balanced when the ball is hit.
2 The retreating blocker should also maintain visual
contact on the attacker to better anticipate where the
ball may go.
3 When moving to set the ball, the athlete should
focus on getting around the ball to face the target.
