DRILL OBJECTIVE
This drill focuses on developing the skill of
the setter to turn, look and call the open court
after setting up their partner.
It also is a valuable motor patter to make
automatic as it will prepare the setter for
picking up a ball that may come back over off
the block.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
In this drill the coach or athlete throws a ball
to the pair on the other side of the net.
The thrown ball can make easy or hard
depending on the level of the athletes.
Just after the ball is set up for the attack, the
individual who threw the ball moves to one
side or the other. (left or right)
After the setter sets the ball, they get low and
turn and look at the defender and make a call
of line or angle depending on where the open
space is.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Additionally the athlete or coach
could throw a ball over to simulate a
blocked ball.
You could make the setter bump set
some and handset others.
Add a blocker so that the setter has
a third option to call ‘nobody’ if the
blocker drops off.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Make sure the setter moves through the ball when
setting as it is difficult to get low and turn if the setter
is moving backwards.
2 After setting the ball the athlete should get down low
with arms open and forward, just in case the ball is
blocked.
3 If the ball is close to the net (and the block) don’t
turn and make the call - focus on saving the play if
the ball is blocked.
