DRILL OBJECTIVE
The objective of this drill is for athletes to
develop the ability to play the ball either short
or deep away from the opposition.
This drill also helps develop communication
between teammates.
DRILL DESCRIPTON
Two lines are drawn across the court (as per
the red lines in the diagram) one about 4 feet
in front of the players in defensive position
and one about 4 feet behind.
The ball then gets thrown over the net to
initiate the drill (either by a coach or one of
the athletes) and the athletes receiving the
ball play out a pass set and spike.
Immediately after the ball is set the athletes
on defensive either drop back together or
move forward together. (this should be
decided on before the drill is initiated to avoid
confusion)
The attacking team attempt to play a soft
shot either deep or short away from the
defenders.
The setter should look after setting and
communicate to the attacker as to what shot
they should play.
The attacking team would get a point if they
managed to play the ball into the area that
the defenders moved away from.
There are several options on how this drill
could run.
Teams could gain points after alternating on
each attack or a rally could be played out
after each ball is introduced.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
To make it much more difficult to
earn a point defenders could move
back and forth independently of each
other.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Attackers may need to be reminded that they should
attempt to take a quick look at defenders before
spiking.
2 Setters should be encouraged to call to their
partners where they should play the shot.
3 Despite the fact that the athletes are required to play
a soft shot they should still maintain strong approach
on their spike.
