Watch The Ball. Then The Setter. Then Back To The Ball... Then Finally The Hitter


After your team has served the ball over the net....

1. Watch the pass as the other team passes the ball to their setter. 

2. Then watch the setter to see how and who she's going to set the ball to.

3. Watch the ball as it travels to the hitter. 

4. Watch the hitter to interpret quickly the best place for you to be while in the back row behind your blockers.

5. Make sure you are not behind the blockers and that you can see the hitter clearly as she hits the ball into your court.

Then shift your eyes to watch the ball as it comes towards you.

You are lowering your hips at the same time so they are below the level of the oncoming ball, which helps you

  • direct the ball into the air and 
  • keeps it on your team's side of the net once you contact the ball with your platform.

By keeping the ball on your side of the net, now its your team's turn to run an offensive play.  

Now, its your team's turn to send the ball to the opposing team's court floor so your squad scores a point.
