To help players learn and perfect their approach towards the net to perform a solid hit

What You Need:

  • Divide the players into 3-5 separate lines
  • Each line will eventually need a ball

Hitting Approach

How It Works:

  1. The first player in line will step up and complete a three-step approach towards the net
  2. They will finish with a jump and arm swing as if they were going to hit the ball over the net
  3. Have each player complete this 3-5 times without the ball
  4. Then have them complete the drill 3-5 times with a ball

Results & Tips:

  • Once a player can approach the net properly, it increases their success rate when they hit
  • Players learning early on might not have all of the coordination necessary to execute this perfectly, but working on the drill is going to help them out over time
