DRILL OBJECTIVE
The objective of this drill is for the athlete to
get practice timing the run through pass,
which is essentially passing the ball while on
the move.
In most cases it is recommended that
athletes move early to the ball and get into a
stable and relatively stationary position when
passing the ball but there are instances in a
game when a run through pass is
appropriate.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
With one athlete at the net blocking angle
and one defender positioned in the middle of
the court a soft shot is played over the block
down the line.
The defender then runs to the line and plays
the ball while on the move forward and up to
their blocker.
Once the athlete has mastered the timing of
this play the digs are accurate the defender
can then play out the ball off the blockers set.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
For a beginner version of this drill
coaches can throw the ball down the
line approximately 6 feet from the
sideline and have the athlete run
from the other sideline to play the
ball.
The coach can vary the speed and
angle of the shot to make the timing
more difficult for the defender.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Focus on timing to ensure that when you play the
ball you have a balanced stance and the ball is not
too close or far away from the body.
2 In this drill the ball is played outside of the body so
athletes need to be reminded to tilt the platform
(inside shoulder down) to get the ideal angle on the
ball.
3 The key is not to slow down or stop when playing
the ball but run through the pass.
