DRILL OBJECTIVE
This drill focuses on developing the skill of
the blocker to turn after landing and hustling
to get to the ball to make a good transition
set.
The drill also gives the defender practice
digging the hard driven ball, chasing down
the soft shot and converting with a spike.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
In this drill the coach or athlete drives a ball
past the block towards the defender.
After the blocker comes down from their
block they turn and hustle to the dug ball to
set up their partner up for the spike.
With a team on each side this drill can be
turned into a continuous drill with angle
attacks. (or cut shots, or soft line shots)
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Ball could be hit over the line or
cross court and played out.
The ball could also occasionally be
driven into the block.
TEACHING POINTS
1 The blocker can turn In the air on the way down to
enable them to get off the net faster however they
must make sure they don’t turn to early and loose
form on the block.
2 Blocker must get ‘around’ the ball and face the net to
set.
Going in a straight line to the ball will often result
in shoulders that are not facing the target when
setting.
3 The defender should focus on playing the ball up
with some height - this will allow the blocker time to
get to the ball.
