This game pits the OH and OPP hitters against each other in a kill challenge to work on being able to score against full-team defense.
One day I found myself wondering if it was possible to specifically measure the explosiveness of a volleyball spike approach.
Missing players forced a focus on skill work rather than team training despite the pending match against one of the league's top teams.
The fact that top level teams use the back row attack successfully doesn't mean most teams should try to feature it in their attack.
After a day of meetings that cleared up some line-up questions, ball-handling was the major theme of this training session.
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.
Sometimes you need to look at things from a different perspective to find ways to help your players improve and increase their volleyball IQ.
