This is a breakdown in an easy-to read format of the steps to take as a spiker from the moment the opposing team serves to after you finish your attack.
Know the defense used by your opponent.
Look at your setter to call the play or to get instructions about the set you are going to hit next.
Know ahead of time what your normal transition hitting assignment is throughout the rally.
Are you the passer?
Are you ready to handle a bad pass?
Are you the attacker?
If your attack ends the rally (in a kill or an error) remember to glance across the net to see where the open spots on the opposing court are while the opposing team is still in their defensive positions
If the ball is still in play, quickly get to your transition blocking assignment.

Opposites Working on Hitting the Line . . Hitting line is a Right side hitters best weapon! . . Opposite hitter @hailey.bo.bailey does a great job of making very distinct quick but patient actions before attacking the line on the right side. . . Block without reaching outside of her body line, stop. . Transition quickly off the net to the ten foot line ...stop. . Wait see the set. She knows it’s a high set so she knows she doesn’t have to rush in . Takes her first step once she sees where the ball will come down . Aggressively “attacks” the last two steps of her spike approach while keeping the ball in front her where she can see the ball, the block and the court . . Gets her feet to the ball with her last two steps of her spike approach letting the ball pass her a bit (allowing the ball to also pass the block) so it’s in front of her spiking arm where she can swing straight ahead contacting the top third of the ball . hard, down the line . . And yes this video probably qualifies as my third blooper reel! . . In an effort “to get the shot” I’m willing to sacrifice my face!

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.
Many of these volleyball practice drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.
If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
