DRILL OBJECTIVE
This drill focuses on developing the skill of
the blocker turning while coming down from
the block and playing a ball that has been
played just over their hands.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
In this drill the blocker goes up with the
attacker who plays a ‘baby line’ shot over the
block.
The blocker then turns on the way down and
attempts to play the ball up before it hits the
ground.
A defensive player can then try to set up the
dug ball or they can attempt to play it over on
2.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Each blocker could have a partner in
back court and this drill could be
used to initiate a game.
If the ball is able to be played over
on two the blocker could call the shot
to be played.
The ball can be hit over the block
from different areas on the net
making the blocker turn different
ways.
TEACHING POINTS:
1 The blocker should try to turn in the air on the way
down to enable them to get off the net faster
however they must make sure they don’t turn to
early and loose form on the block.
2 Landing with knees bent will give the blocker a
better ability to cover more of the court and get to
more balls.
3 Rather than swinging the arms sideways the blocker
should attempt to get their arms under the ball and
play it up.
