6.5 BLOCKING
BLOCKER TRANSITION TO SET
(intermediate)
EQUIPMENT:
Ideal: As many balls as possible
Minimum: 2 or 3 balls
PARTICIPANTS:
Ideal: 4 athletes + coach observing
Maximum: Up to 6 athletes per side + coach observing
Minimum: 1 athlete + coach assisting
DRILL OBJECTIVE
This drill focuses on developing the ability of
an athlete to set his/her partner after
blocking. (often referred to as a transition set)
DRILL DESCRIPTION
The defender slaps the ball and throws it up
(somewhere inside the red circle) to simulate
a dig.
When the ball is slapped the blocker does a
maximum jump and turns to locate the ball
and set it up.
The thrower then moves to play out the ball
or simply catches it.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
The defender can throw up the ball
to a position that would simulate a
good defensive dig (indicated by the
perforated circle) or a dig that is not
so great. (any area outside the
circle).
The ball could also be driven over
the net to the defender by a coach or
another athlete.
The ball can be thrown up with
minimal spin or thrown up with a lot
of spin, which will make it more
difficult to achieve a good transition
set.
TEACHING POINTS
1 The blocker should land with bent knees so that they
can move quickly to the ball to set.
2 If the blocker can turn towards the ball on the way
down from the block they will be in a better position
to move quickly to the ball.
3 The blocker must make sure that they hustle to the
ball and get around to face the target when they set.
