DRILL DESCRIPTION
In this drill the athletes who is attacking
moves around a cone (placed about 10ft
back from the centre of the net) and spikes
balls that are set from a partner (or coach) at
the net.
After each spike the athlete running the drill
picks up another ball and proceeds to either
throw or depending on the level of the
players, drive it at their partner who has
moved to the other side of the cone.
Athlete must get a certain number of balls
(which can vary from approximately 6 – 12)
over the net without the ball touching the net.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
To increase the level of difficulty
athletes could attack the ball over the
net into spots on the court for a point.
(areas marked by red lines)
Additionally you could increase the
number of spikes required to
complete the drill.
Athletes could also have to dig two
spiked balls from their partner at the
net before getting set.
TEACHING POINTS:
1 Athletes should aim for the corners of the court
when they start to fatigue, as this is the longest line.
2 Athletes should try for maximal jump on every spike
and keep a high elbow even when tired.
3 Athletes should focus on making a good dig off the
spiked ball, as this will directly affect the quality of
the set they receive.
