DRILL OBJECTIVE
This drill works on developing the attackers’
ability to either hit or shoot the ball away from
defenders.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
This drill is similar to drill 4.9 except in this
drill the focus is on the attacker sensing
where the defender is moving to in back
court with the objective of playing the ball
away from them.
The drill is initiating by either a coach or
athlete throwing (or serving) the ball into the
court to two receiving players.
The defender who is initially positioned in the
centre of the court moves left or right directly
after ball is set.
The athlete attacking the ball focuses on
trying to take a quick look at the defender
before jumping and attempts to play the ball
away from them.
If the player does not have time to take a
look at the defender then they should try to
sense where the defender is in order to play
the ball away from them.
Lines can be drawn in the sand (examples in
red) designating areas that the ball should be
played into and points can be given out for
successful shots.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
The defensive player can wait a little
longer before moving to make it
more difficult for the attacker.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Although this is an attacking drill, athletes need to be
aware that making a good pass is vital to creating a
situation in which it is easy to observe the defensive
players movement.
2 If the pass is not perfect beginner athletes may need
to be reminded to ‘follow the ball’ in order to get a
straighter approach on the spike, allow them in turn
to see the defender better.
