To focus more on the reactionary abilities of your team and players.
- Divide your players into four groups
- Each group will have one player at the net and the a line of remaining players in the back court
- The first back court player will start with their back to the net
How it Works
- To start the player at the net will slap the ball and then hit it over the net.
- The first back court player must turn around, locate the ball, and complete a proper dig.
- Then the player at the net will play a tip ball.
- The back court player must recover and hit a second dig.
- After 10 double digs a player is done and a new player can rotate in.
- Digging a hard spiked ball takes a different reaction than digging a tipped ball; one puts you back on your heels and the other one puts you on your toes; that’s why this drill is important.
- It is an essential drill for good transition and for good reaction to real situations that occur during the game.
