Hitting Drill: What if the First Pass is not Perfect?

No matter how much we drill, we can’t expect our players to be perfect all the time. Sometimes the other team’s attack is really good and our defense is stressed and the first pass is difficult. In order to be a good offensive team you must still be able to attack effectively when the first pass is not perfect. In the drill below John Dunning, Stanford University head women’s volleyball coach, you’ll see a hitting drill that will help your setters get the ball to hitters even if the initial pass isn’t perfect.

This drill is just a example from ideas Coach Dunning has to help your practices. For more information about the DVD that this drill came from click the link Creative Drill Design for Effective Practices
