A shortened session saw me work mainly 6 v 6 with a focus on problem areas identified in the club league match the team played on Sunday.
In what was a disappointing session on the intensity and focus front after a pretty good one the night before, the focus was 6 v 6 play for match prep.
The first go at 6 v 6 play after shifting from a 2-setter to a 1-setter system showed a massive improvement.
After a day of meetings that cleared up some line-up questions, ball-handling was the major theme of this training session.
After a hard session the night before, the team was pretty poor in all facets of volleyball in this session.
Two primary areas of focus for this session - evaluating a pair of potential new additions and putting the players under physical and mental strain.
This session I introduced a couple of new games to see how they went and worked the middles and setters on quick attacks to see where we're at.
An integrated 6 v 6 game convinced me that I need to have A and B teams separated for at least the next few weeks to help the A team prepare for upcoming matches.
