SETTING BALL OUT OF THE NET
(intermediate to advanced)

Minimum: 1 athlete + coach assisting
DRILL OBJECTIVE
Sometimes during a game a situation occurs
where the ball needs to be played out of the
net and this drill gives athletes practice for
this situation.
In this drill athletes get practice bump setting
the ball up for their partner out of the net.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
An athlete either throws or spikes the ball
into the bottom of the net.
An athlete that did not throw the ball into the
net then gets as low as possible to the
ground to bump set the ball that comes out of
the net up into the air so it can be attacked.
The athlete that threw (or spiked) the ball into
the net then tries to attack.
If the athletes are struggling with the playing
of the ball into then net then the coach can
initiate the drill then move away for an athlete
to spike the ball.
Be aware that for this drill to work best the
net should have a tight cord running through
the bottom so that the ball bounces out rather
than falling straight down and the ball should
be driven into the very bottom of the net
rather than the top.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Coach can throw (or spike) ball into
the net and the other two athletes
can do a series of reps.
Setters can make a call after bump
setting as to where they would like
the attack to go.
Athlete could come from a blocking
position to bump set the ball out of
the net.
TEACHING POINTS:
1 Athletes need to understand the behavior of the net
and how it acts to pop the ball out.
2 Athletes need to stay a good distance away from the
net in order not to be cramped, which makes bump-
setting the ball up more difficult.
3 The athletes need to realize that by playing the ball
closer to the ground they are giving themselves
more time to react and get into a good position.
