DRILL OBJECTIVE
The objective of this drill is for the athletes to
develop a wide range of attacking shots.
Additionally it helps to reinforce correct spike
approach allowing the athletes to effectively
attack into all areas of the court.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
There are a few different ways to initiate this
drill but the simplest is for the attacker to
throw the ball to their partner who sets them
up.
The attacker them spikes the ball into a
number of different spots on the court.
It is important for beginners to experience
attacking into all areas of the court but as a
player gains experience they may decide to
focus on certain shots that they need work
on.
Athletes can go around attacking into
positions 1-5 (if they hit a spot they can skip
that spot next time around), or an athlete can
work their way around from 1-5 moving on to
the next number only when they successfully
attack the ball into the designated spot.
Athletes should always practice attacking
from both sides of the net.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Make the size of the spots smaller
will make the drill more difficult.
The setter can call the area of the
court that they would like the ball
attacked into.
TEACHING POINTS:
1 Athletes need to be reminded that they need to have
a strong approach on every attack.
2 The athletes arm swing should be the same for
every attack with the wrist being the only part that
changes the direction of the ball.
3 For right-handed athletes, the approach should be
on a slight angle on the left side and almost straight
onto the net on the right. The opposite applies for
left-handed athletes.
