Setup

  • A coach or player on the opposite side with a bunch of balls.

Execution

  1. The coach will toss a ball towards the opposite side of the court.
  2. The players must adjust to the ball, get in position, and block it at the net, preventing the ball from going over the net.
  3. The coach will continue to toss balls in different directions, angles, and spins.
  4. The players will continue to move and block.
  5. Rotate a new group of 3 after 3-5 balls have been tossed.

Coaching Tips

  • With repetition players will have a much better understanding of how to set up a proper block.
  • To increase competiveness you can play until the group of 3 doesn’t complete a block successfully and see which group can complete the most consecutive block.
