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.
Having trouble consistently hitting the ball over the net? . Don’t cheat the grind. Work on . Elbow Check to make sure you keep your elbow high (above the level of your ear like Jacob does during these arm swing hitting warmup reps.) . HAND 1. Fingers stay WIDE while 3. Palm of the hand of the hitting arm stays open to the ceiling before it 5. contacts the top of the ball ...at 6. the highest point of your arm swing reach .. . . Arm After ball contact... hitting arm follows through the downward movement with ...thumb to thigh . ➡️Work to have a consistent arm swing during warmups.., when you aren’t jumping ...so when you do add the lower body spike approach..., you’re ready. . . To prep for 2022 take one of my Coach April’s Weekend Volleyball Classes or Private Training Sessions.
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.
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.
