Two Hitting Drills Volleyball Players Do To Learn To Beat The Block 

Here are two hitting drills volleyball players use in our practices to teach our hitters how to beat the block while hitting or attacking at the net. 


You learn how to get the ball past a double block, how to hit the high seam between blockers hands, how to wipe off the block, how to mix up shots and how to hit deep corners.


Hitting Drills Volleyball Players 
Use To Spike Against A Double Block


As a left side outside hitter you need to get used to having two blockers up against you when you hit since the opposing team will anticipate you receiving the majority of sets. 

Just like the defensive players on a football team have eyes on the opposing team's running back and expect him to run the ball or catch the ball most of the time, the blockers on defense on a volleyball team keep a special eye out, always watching and anticipating the ball being set to the opposing team's left side hitter. 

There are hitting drills volleyball players specifically for hitters to develop the ability to hit past the block, through the seam of the block or to tool the blocker's hands in an effort to score with their attack hit.  

These are just a few reasons why as a hitter you need to be doing a lot of different hitting drills players do for hitting during practices.

You want to be ready for all types of situations and you need to prepare to hit against a one-player, two-player or even three player block put up against you to try and stop your attack hits at the net. 

Check out my former coach, three-time USA Olympic volleyball coach Taras "Terry" Lyskevich as he explains his version of the "One Hitter vs Six Players" drill.

Adopt a fearless attitude about hitting. Great hitters have confidence in their ability to hit against any block.
Become a tenacious tiger about hitting against a two-person block. Remember you have options making you effective against a two-person block.
Exploit the holes in the block. Look for holes between the middle blocker and the outside blocker in front of you. Aim your spike fearlessly right for that “seam.”

Ask your back row players, between plays, to tell you whether the middle blocker is late closing the block. They are perfectly positioned to help you see what is going on in the front row.
Use your back row players to help when you are in the front row. Ask them to tell what they see is open and what the other team is or is not doing.
Wipe the ball off the block. “Use” the block instead of always trying to hit past it. You can learn to wipe the ball off the hands of the outside block no matter how tall you are.
Spike the ball aiming for the outside arm of the outside blocker in front of you.
Hit the ball hard so it comes back off her arm and outside the sideline. Hitting like this keeps the defense from covering the ball, makes points, creates sideouts, keeps you in the game,
