Check out these spiking videos of players working on hitting drills 


In practice during spike training, you should do a lot of drills that teach you how to hit the ball hard, but you should also practice 

  • * how to tip the ball
  • * how to roll shot the ball
  • * how to tip the ball sending it deep in the court as well as being
  • * able to place the ball short, right behind the block.

When I say "mix up your shots" that means you develop a "bag of tools" or  a variety of ways to attack the ball, so that when the block stops your power game, or you want to really keep the opposing team guessing, you have the option of using your finesse game to still score points against the opposing team.



I don’t believe in specialization where middle blockers only block, and liberos only dig.

My belief is that whenever possible each player regardless of the position should be skilled enough to perform and/or train all six skills and perform them well. . .

My middle blockers train to be good passers and backcourt players with excellent digging and passing skills. . .

My liberos when possible get hitting and even blocking reps after they’ve done a ton of passing and digging reps. . .

In this drill, each hitter takes an approach jump and hits a controlled 50-65% speed ball to the opposing digger’s general cross court area. . .
