    with Chris McGown, BYU Head Men's Volleyball Coach;
    2013 AVCA National Coach of the Year; 2013 NCAA Runners-Up;
    back-to-back MPSF regular-season and tournament titles (2013-14);

    Attackers need to develop skills in assessing conditions before and during the play. This includes seeing blockers and back row defenders as well as executing a variety of shots in a very dynamic environment. BYU Head Coach Chris McGown, the 2013 AVCA Coach of the Year, shows you how to coach all three - assessment, vision, and shot development and execution.

    Coach McGown delivers 10 must have shots for pin hitters and six must have shots for middles. He calls these "shots in the hitter's toolbox." Throughout the video he explains, demonstrates and provides drills for helping players understand and work on the shots. McGown also goes into great detail on which shots are effective versus different blocking schemes and situations.

    You will learn how to develop the shots against single and double blocks. These drills help teach hitters to read the blockers and decide where to hit. Throughout the drills Coach McGown shows different progressions and variations to the drills that add to the difficulty level of reading the blockers. These drills will help hitters to read and understand blockers tendencies, which will help them to decide which shot to go with to beat the defense. Once the hitters learn what to do in different blocking situations they can then take their attacking game to a whole new level.

    The last segment adds game like situations. Threepeat is a game action drill that allows hitters three opportunities to redo a shot if they make a hitting error. Afterward the coach asks the player what they saw, what they were trying to do and which tool in the toolbox were they trying to use. These drills will help players make decisions on reading the block and shot selection.

    This video does a great job of explaining the what, why and when of hitting. Coaches will be able to take the good power hitter and turn them into a great scoring hitter!

    Produced at the 2014 AVCA Annual Convention in Oklahoma City, OK.

    VD-04836A: featuring drills from Kirsten Berenthal Booth, Todd Dagenais, John Dunning, Jerritt Elliott, Terry Gamble, Chris Gravel, Kevin Hambly, Tom Keating, Joe Sagula and Bond Shymansky

    The first contact is arguably the most important, and in this video you will be shown a collection of 30 of the best passing and digging drills from an all-star cast of coaches. Everything a coach needs to know about these two skills is covered in this video. The drills flow from basic mechanics of the skills to advanced, game-like drills that put emphasis on passing or digging. Passing drills are broken up into segments focused on footwork, libero training and game play.

    The Basics
    Passing - Accurate passes are essential to run a functioning offense. In this section, you'll learn how to teach a beginning or less-experienced player how to pass properly to create consistency. The drills show easy-to-follow progressions that cover the basics of platform passing to more advanced drills that involve moving to pass in all directions. The simple steps provided will make it easy for you to understand how to organize practice drills to enhance the skills of your players.

    Defensive digging - Coach-controlled drills cover the basics and defensive digging aspects that your team will use during games. Your players will work on their footwork, reaction time, overhand digging and proper court movement. The "Diamond Passing" drill is one of two single-focus drills that are presented. It is a great drill that will engage the brain while working on ball handling. Players must learn to focus during a chaotic situation while playing the ball and performing coach-initiated tasks. This is a great drill to help players stay focused on playing the ball while various distractions occur around them.

    Team Passing
    The drills in this section focus on serve-receive and player responsibilities for serve-receive. Each drill targets a different aspect of the serve-receive, including movement, seam responsibilities, communication, and ball control. Many of the drills are demonstrated with variations that allow you to alter the main focus to suit the needs of your team. The last drill series progresses to attacking off of the pass, two important skills in one drill.

    Pepper Drills (defensive ball control)
    This series is a great practice warm-up that works on ball control with multiple touches. All of the drills are presented in a cooperative fashion, but can be used in a competitive manner as well. Your players will work on defending all types of attacks, including tips, rolls and full attacks. You will learn an entire season's worth of warm-ups from this section alone. The "Four Player Middle Back" drill is a great pepper game that gives middle backs (liberos) multiple reps defending soft shots to the deep corners, which will help them read and react quicker.

    Team Games
    All of the skills practiced in previous drills are put into game action. These team drills will bring fun to every practice, while challenging players to be the best defenders they can be. You will fall in love with the 6v6 Fun Zero Drill, which is all about effort on defense. Your players will be forced to work hard at reading, reacting and defending in order for their team to win the game.

    Everything a team needs to improve their ball control and enhance the skills of their passers is presented in this video. With over two hours of drills from accomplished coaches, this is a must-have video for any team that wants to step up their passing abilities.

    VD-04836B: featuring drills from Bryan Bunn, Teri Clemens, Todd Dagenais, John Dunning, Christy Johnson-Lynch, Tom Keating and Lizzy Stemke

    This video is a complete toolbox of setting drills that will greatly enhance your practice library. Compiled from the best setting videos in Championship Productions' extensive library, every aspect of a setter's game is covered in this series of drills, including mechanics, movement and emergency techniques.

    Setting Mechanics
    In these drills, the setter works on hand positioning, body positioning, and setting different locations at the net. The drills are geared towards training a setter's basic fundamentals, which in turn will help your setters become more consistent. Your players will focus on hand positioning, setting to various positions on the net, masking the set, good decision making and jump setting. The "Reverse the Flow" drill practices a skill most setters don't utilize: setting opposite of the pass. This drill will train your setters to become more unpredictable as they set balls in the opposite direction of the pass.

    Movement Drills
    Your players will use more game-like skills in this set of drills, as they begin setting while moving. Setters must know how to get into position to set consistent, hittable balls. Every possible setting scenario is covered in this series of drills, including how to get to target, how to move to get under a ball, the serve receive release, covering hitters and transitioning from defensive positions. The "Set, Cover, Dig, Set" series is a great sequence that covers what a setter should do in an average offensive possession. Covering a hitter can often be overlooked by setters, but in this series it is etched into your players' brains as they are also work on moving, setting, and digging.

    Emergency Moves
    Your setters will learn how to take balls tight to the net, off the net and off target in this video segment. Even though they are labeled as emergency moves, setters face these situations many times during a typical match. You'll also learn how to teach the spin move, various types of tilt sets, balls into the net and how to attack tightly-passed balls. The "Setter Dump" drill series covers every type of attack a setter could use, explains why each attack is effective and also goes over when the best time is to use them.

    Coaches of all levels will benefit from the drills and skills showcased in this video. Improving the game play of your setters will instantly improve the play of your entire team.

    Compiled from Championship Productions' vast video library, this video is a collection of attacking drills from some of the best coaches in the business. You will learn how to teach basic attacking skills to advanced techniques. These world-class coaches will teach you arm swings, approaches, transitions, various types of attacks, combination attacks and attacking out-of-system.

    The first section of the video features training on:

    • Approach - Covered are the basics of the two-, three- and four-step approaches. Also included are the coaches' thoughts on the importance of the approach and how to address the common mistakes you might see your players make.
    • Transition - Discover drills that combine the arm swing and approach at a more game-like pace. These drills teach hitters how to use their footwork to transition to the right spots on the court for more powerful approaches. If hitters don't transition properly, they will not get the most out of each hit. The "Transition Attack Drill" will help your middles understand how to come off of the net after a block no matter where they are, getting them in prime position to attack.
    • The next portion of the video will teach you how to coach players to hit different types of sets. These drills work on various attacks for both outside and middle hitters. The attacks demonstrated in these drills are faster-paced and work best for more experienced teams. You will learn how to train the A, B, C, quick and slide sets. Many of these drills focus on the slide attack, a move gaining popularity in today's game.

      The last segment is for higher-level teams that are looking to make their offense more difficult to defend. Various attacks are put together in play sets, and you'll learn how to train different offensive plays in combination. The play sets are explained and demonstrated so you can understand which player is responsible for hitting every set. This section also includes drills that teach hitters to score more by using their vision to attack around or off of blockers' hands. The peripheral vision and shovel drills in this section are great ways to teach strategy to your hitters and help them become more effective.

      Even the most experienced coaches will benefit from the attacking drills presented in this video. All players can benefit from the skills and techniques provided by these world-class coaches. This product will benefit any coach who wants to help their hitters maximize their potential.

    Wingate has gone undefeated in SAC play in six of the past eight seasons, compiled a league-record 83-match SAC winning streak, and has qualified for 10 consecutive NCAA Tournaments (2005-14)

    Coaches spend numerous hours trying to find "magic" drills that will give their players a winning advantage, but they spend little time studying and understanding what it takes to manage a game effectively. Put your team in position to win more games by effectively preparing for and managing your matches. Coach Shelton Collier offers practical and easy-to-follow advice that he's learned and developed over the course of 900 career wins.

    In this PowerPoint presentation, you'll learn how to manage game day situations by rehearsing them in practice so when they occur in a match, your players will be prepared and confident. Coach Collier covers many aspects of what it takes to run great practices and make successful in-game decisions.

    In-Match Adjustments
    To successfully make adjustments during a match, its imperative to rehearse them in practice. Coach Collier shares insights into practicing game adjustments such as: shifting passing formations, serving to different zones, stopping a priority hitter, attacking over a small setter, attacking various defenses and the use of substitutions. Once you rehearse these adjustments in practice, your team will be better prepared to make them during a match.

    In-Match Communication
    To keep the your opponent from overhearing your strategies, Collier discusses how to discreetly communicate with a player on the court. The ability to make a call or an adjustment without your opponent hearing you could be the difference between winning or losing the next point.

    Match Preparation
    Coach Collier shares strategies you can use to give your team an advantage before the match even begins. He talks about how to communicate with your team before and during a match, strategies for preparing players for game situations, and the dos and don'ts of pregame communication, pep talks, talking with players and warm-up strategies. Collier also goes in-depth on the variables involved in setting a starting rotation. Effective match preparation will put your players in position to be successful in the match.

    VD-04832B: with Shelton Collier,
    Wingate University Head Coach; over 900 career wins;
    2013 AVCA National Coach of the Year;
    Wingate has gone undefeated in SAC play in six of the past eight seasons, compiled a league-record 83-match SAC winning streak, and has qualified for 10 consecutive NCAA Tournaments (2005-14)

    Volleyball isn't always "pretty," so you have to teach your team what to do when it gets "ugly."

    2013 AVCA Coach of the Year, Shelton Collier delivers sophisticated drills and strategies for helping players get comfortable playing out-of-system. Using on-court demonstrations, Coach Collier shows how to create chaotic situations in practice to prepare your team for live action, out-of-system situations.

    You will learn a series of progressive drills that take players through a variety of scenarios they will face when out-of-system. These drills focus on building players' confidence in a controlled environment.

    Warm-Up Drills
    Coach Collier showcases a four-phase progressive warm up for developing ball control. All players work on passing and setting skills while also improving communication - an essential skill for out-of-system play. These progressions are a great lead-in for a practice full of out-of-system work.

    Systematic Drills
    Through a series of progressive drills, Coach Collier makes sure all of his players can set or attack when out-of-system. Players get consistent reps, giving them opportunities to practice out-of-system sets and various situations. These drills cover skills like taking the easiest set available, reversing the flow and setting hitters while giving them feedback. Coach Collier's out-of-system dig and set drill series will help you create a sophisticated offense.

    Second Ball Drills for Liberos
    If you have a libero who can set a second ball, you can separate yourself from an average team. Coach Collier provides a series of drills that focus on this crucial element of out-of-system play. These drills include multiple phases that progress from basic libero sets to high-level libero moves. Your liberos will work on developing their hands, platform, setting ability and the ability to take the ball in front of the attack line with their hands. The series progresses to drills with hitters so your liberos can work on delivering hittable balls. A unique drill in this section features liberos working on setting middle hitters, which is rare in out-of-system play, but can be a valuable tool for your team to have.

    Second Ball Drills for All Players
    These drills are a great tool for developing your players' problem solving. Throughout the drills, Coach Collier shows how to use them both systematically and randomly. Systematic drills allow multiple, controlled touches, while random drills gives players game-like touches.

    Team Drills
    The last segment of the video focuses on drills that are team-oriented and game-like. These drills will teach your team to play out-of-system in each of the six rotations, cover hitters, attack out of the middle, and attack by sliding in front of and behind the setter.

    When a hitter is blocked and the coverage team digs the ball, teams usually don't have a plan or haven't practiced how to run an offense in that situation. The Cover Drills series will help teach your players how to handle this out-of-system moment in many different fashions. The drills also cover how to attack when a player other than the setter covers the hitter, when the setter covers the hitter, and when the hitter covers their own attack.

    The drills shared in this video are valuable to teams of all levels that want to take their game to the next level. Bad passes, difficult digs, and setters taking the first ball are all common occurrences. The team that is best prepared to handle these situations will be the team that achieves victory.

    with John Dunning,
    Stanford University Head Women's Volleyball Coach;
    Distinguished member of the AVCA Hall of Fame (2011);
    2001 AVCA National Coach of the Year; 2004 & 2001 NCAA Champs; 4x Pac-12 Coach of the Year; over 800 career wins
    former University of Pacific Head Coach (1985 & 1986 NCAA Champions)

    The ability to improve your team's performance in specific areas is critical to your success.

    Using on-court demonstrations, AVCA Hall of Fame coach John Dunning takes you through a series of drills and explains how they address the details that are important to coaches. Coach Dunning discusses how you can make the purpose of each practice clear to your players so they know exactly what is expected.

    Drill Variation
    Warming up, serving, passing, transition, attacking, setting and team play are all topics covered by Coach Dunning. He explains how you can vary each drill to focus on different aspects of the game. You'll get tips on what to look for during the drills, as well as what players should focus on while they're on the court. Included are controlled drills that will allow you to explain the expectations to your team, control the tempo of the drill and give your players valuable repetitions.

    Offensive Consistency
    Striking quickly on offense is an effective strategy in today's game. Coach Dunning shares a set of Columbus drills that address the need to develop a consistent tempo (regardless of who sets the ball), hitter rhythm and offensive efficiency. The goal of the drill is a predetermined number of consecutive swings that considers everything from setting tempo, to approach and arm swing. The concepts in this drill can be applied to any skill requiring improvement.

    "20-6"
    Coach Dunning mentions the "20-6" concept many times during the video. The goal is to execute a skill correctly 20 times before making six errors. This concept can be used to train any skill that your players need to improve and can be used in practice with consequences and/or incentives. It's also a great way to track progress during games.

    Holding Players Accountable
    One of the most unique parts of the video is Coach Dunning's use of two scoreboards. He uses one scoreboard to score the drill and uses the other to track player or team performance. The second scoreboard can help you and your players focus on a certain aspect of the game during the drill. This encourages players to focus on the process instead of the result. This is a great way to hold players accountable for their performance in practice drills and can be used during matches as well.

    The drills offered in this video can help you improve your players' skills by focusing on areas that need improvement. Coach Dunning's tips will help you run a more effective practice and get the most out of your players. This video is a great resource for any aspiring volleyball coach.

    Volleyball isn't always "pretty," so you have to teach your team what to do when it gets "ugly."

    2013 AVCA Coach of the Year, Shelton Collier delivers sophisticated drills and strategies for helping players get comfortable playing out-of-system. Using on-court demonstrations, Coach Collier shows how to create chaotic situations in practice to prepare your team for live action, out-of-system situations.

    You will learn a series of progressive drills that take players through a variety of scenarios they will face when out-of-system. These drills focus on building players' confidence in a controlled environment.

    Warm-Up Drills
    Coach Collier showcases a four-phase progressive warm up for developing ball control. All players work on passing and setting skills while also improving communication - an essential skill for out-of-system play. These progressions are a great lead-in for a practice full of out-of-system work.

    Systematic Drills
    Through a series of progressive drills, Coach Collier makes sure all of his players can set or attack when out-of-system. Players get consistent reps, giving them opportunities to practice out-of-system sets and various situations. These drills cover skills like taking the easiest set available, reversing the flow and setting hitters while giving them feedback. Coach Collier's out-of-system dig and set drill series will help you create a sophisticated offense.

    Second Ball Drills for Liberos
    If you have a libero who can set a second ball, you can separate yourself from an average team. Coach Collier provides a series of drills that focus on this crucial element of out-of-system play. These drills include multiple phases that progress from basic libero sets to high-level libero moves. Your liberos will work on developing their hands, platform, setting ability and the ability to take the ball in front of the attack line with their hands. The series progresses to drills with hitters so your liberos can work on delivering hittable balls. A unique drill in this section features liberos working on setting middle hitters, which is rare in out-of-system play, but can be a valuable tool for your team to have.

    Second Ball Drills for All Players
    These drills are a great tool for developing your players' problem solving. Throughout the drills, Coach Collier shows how to use them both systematically and randomly. Systematic drills allow multiple, controlled touches, while random drills gives players game-like touches.

    Team Drills
    The last segment of the video focuses on drills that are team-oriented and game-like. These drills will teach your team to play out-of-system in each of the six rotations, cover hitters, attack out of the middle, and attack by sliding in front of and behind the setter.

    When a hitter is blocked and the coverage team digs the ball, teams usually don't have a plan or haven't practiced how to run an offense in that situation. The Cover Drills series will help teach your players how to handle this out-of-system moment in many different fashions. The drills also cover how to attack when a player other than the setter covers the hitter, when the setter covers the hitter, and when the hitter covers their own attack.

    The drills shared in this video are valuable to teams of all levels that want to take their game to the next level. Bad passes, difficult digs, and setters taking the first ball are all common occurrences. The team that is best prepared to handle these situations will be the team that achieves victory.

    with Mike Lingenfelter, Munciana Samurai Head Coach and Co-Director Asics Munciana Volleyball Club; His Munciana Samurai teams have won four national championships and have placed in the top 3 (JVA/AAU/USA) in the nation every year of its existence (2004). Lingenfelter is one of two coaches to ever reach an 18 Open Championship Match in all three of the major volleyball organizations (JVA, AAU and USA); former Wapahani (IN) High School Head Coach, back-to-back Indiana 2A state titles in 2011 and 2012, 3x Indiana State Coach of the Year

    Learn how to attack with speed and creativity! Coach Mike Lingenfelter opens his gym to you sharing three practices with his club team that focus on how train your offense to be as lethal as possible, whether it is "in system" or "out-of-system." He delivers fast-paced drills with continuous feedback and clear communication of expectations. He talks during drills, pulls the team together and stops drills to have a teaching moment. Each of the three practices focused on a different serving strategy. When you put the three together you have a complete serving game play that can be trained throughout practices.

    Disc 1:
    Mastering the `out of system' play in any match is absolutely critical to success. This video features a fast-paced and high energy practice with drills that focus on having all players work on setting out of system balls. The ball does not always go to the setter and therefore others need to know what to do in those situations and still attack the other team. The drills will help improve players ball control while giving them an understanding of running an out of system offense. There is also an added focus on being able to serve and hit balls down specific traffic lanes from multiple positions to keep the opponent out of system. Getting your opponent out-of-system on their first contact will give your team a huge advantage. Identifying specific lanes to attack with your serve can disorganize and frustrate an opponent, leading to easier transition plays for you. All of the drills are fast paced with little down time in between reps. Teams play how they practice. Stressing pace and tempo of every drill will help ingrain that philosophy into your team. The game-like drills carry an intensity that matches the actual game and the players are challenged.

    Disc 2:
    The first practice focused on how to run an offense with bad passing, this practice is geared towards how to run it with great passing. This video is all about offensive connectivity, which sounds like it might be all about attacking but it's much more than that. Coach Lingenfelter uses passing and serve receive drills to stress the role and importance of a good pass. The focus is on movement and platform control to ensure successful first ball contacts. He includes a runs a 6v6 drill where the team receiving serve is at a deficit to stress the urgency of scoring off of serve receive. After that he uses a variety of attacking drills to work on a fast offense and communication. You'll see multiple offensive attacks off of hitter coverage for fast-paced retaliation. The drills shown give players countless reps of running different play sets at game speed or even a little faster. All the drills all have some kind of competitive edge to them that holds athletes accountable for their play.

    Disc 3:
    The main focus in this practice is on how to play defense, transition to offense from defense, and also blocking. The emphasis is on speed in "resetting" by transitioning faster than your opponent. Footwork, speed and relentless pursuit of the ball are at the forefront of the fast-paced, game-like drills presented to reinforce the skills necessary to properly transition from defense to fast attack. You'll see simple cues for communication on serve received, based on trajectory, velocity, and location, especially in seams. Coach Lingenfelter demonstrates drills that train ball control, defensive position, defensive posture, digging and blocking. He does a great job showing viewers how to train speed from a dig to an attack on the defensive side of the ball. He runs a six-person drill to simulate a quick read of the opponent's setter to establish a fast blocking and defensive reaction that prepares them for a quick retaliation in transition.

    Get the most out of your training time. You can maximize your practice by seeing the speed of these practices and the amount of touches the players get on the ball.

    This is the type of video I would never want my opponents to see. It is the most detailed training video I have ever seen when it comes to out of system play. - Shawn Stoliker

    with Anne Kordes, University of Louisville Head Coach;
    2010 and 2011 USA Select National Team Lead Coach

    Anne Kordes shows you how to organize and run an effective preseason practice. This isn't a clinic that suggests how practice should go. Instead, you are thrust into the middle of Coach Kordes' preseason practices and shown what actually happens in her gym.

    Disc 1:
    Coach Kordes breaks down a practice plan that includes weightlifting and video review. The session includes multiple ball control drills as the practices concentrate on individual passing and defense. The team progresses to 6-on-6 and 5-on-6 game play, ending with a scrimmage. Drill highlights include:

    • Ball Control Series - Drills feature Lanes Narrow, Lanes Wide, Run Thru Sequence and Side-to-Side Short. Mostly player initiated, these drills let the whole team work on ball-control skills while coaches travel around the gym monitoring progress and giving feedback.
    • Digging Technique - A large part of this practice focuses on digging technique. After the coaches break down the skill, player-initiated drills are executed to focus on learning the techniques for digging hard-driven balls, balls in front of the player and balls outside of the midline.
    • 6-on-6 Drills - The 6-on-6 portion is a basic wash format. However, it effectively shows how the coaches interact with the players to improve individual skill during actual play. Too often, coaches leave individual instruction for "drill time" and don't focus on individual skills during game-like scrimmages. This section of the presentation shows how to use practice time to improve athletes' individual skills.

    Disc 2:
    A variety of skills are featured in this segment including passing, serving and digging. Using a team approach, players execute drills that are designed to focus on one or two skills at a time. Warm-up drills keep the players moving at a fast pace as they practice getting to the ball, keeping their posture low and passing to the target. Drill highlights include:

    • 4 v 4 Warm-up - A warm-up drill that trains players to defend left-to-left attacks, right-to-right attacks and pipe-to-pipe attacks. The drill helps to build the foundation of team defense by forcing defenders to communicate and defend in close proximity.
    • Dig, Set and Cover Drill - This drill focuses on covering starts with a live swing from the opposite side. The team digs the ball and then covers the resulting set. The live swing/dig gives this drill a game-like feel, which makes the covering skill more transferable to actual games.
    • Passing - Drills build from individual technique to game-like serve receive drills with scoring.

    Disc 3:
    The initial focus on Day 3 is technique. Setters work on footwork, hand training, and set placement while middles work on blocking patterns. Coach Kordes and her staff lead the players through ball control/rhythm drills, digging techniques, passing reps and serving speed drills. During the afternoon session, the focus is on competing. Coach Kordes uses speedball as a fun, competitive warm-up drill. Team competition continues throughout the afternoon session with 10-in-a-Row, 12 Point Middle Score More Game, and Finish the Set drills. Drill highlights include:

    • Individual Setter Training - This segment provides a blueprint for designing your own setter training.
    • Rhythm Ball Control Series - Ball control is not just getting the ball to the right location but delivering it on time so the next player can play it properly. This team ball-control series (forearm and overhand passing) focuses on the rhythm or height of the pass.
    • 6 v 6 with Bonus Scoring - This drill gives extra points for consecutive kills by the middle hitter. Though specific to the middle hitter, it's a great example of how changing the scoring system can totally transform the focus of the drill without the coach making it happen. By manipulating the scoring, the team automatically works on the area that the coach thinks the team needs to improve.

    This presentation gives you a road map to focus on this skill in your gym, while keeping it fun and interesting to the team.

    recognized by USA Volleyball as one of their All-Time Great Coaches in 2005

    The goal of developing a culture of mental toughness in your team is a tall order given the fact that mental toughness cannot be measured or charted like other aspects of the game. Coach Russ Rose views mental toughness on the court as "aggressive attitude with confidence and all of the skills to play the game." Skill-confidence leads to mental toughness and Rose feels it is essential to devise and conduct aggressive practice drills that repeatedly put each athlete and your team under challenging and stressful conditions. This will result in making high stress situations more familiar with the goal of "hardening" your athletes to stay on task during game duress. Rose's drills focus on developing mentally tough servers, passers, setters, hitters, competitors, back row players and the team as a whole. All of these drills provide unique challenges that will encourage your players to rally around their teammates in tough, competitive situations. Creating a mentally tough culture has earned Rose two national titles and it will give your team a new, competitive edge.

    In this video, three-time national championship coach Walt Ker will teach you how to handle a ball that moves late in its flight path and share several "tools" that, when used at the proper time, will increase your players' ability to not only recognize the pace, trajectory and movement of the serve, but also how to play the ball successfully.

    The Blind Spot

    Coach Ker begins the video by demonstrating the basic visual technique that most players lack. He shows how many players have a blind spot that leads to inaccurate passes. Using Coach Ker's techniques, your players will increase their visual contact with the ball and learn to adjust their platform to any last second movements the ball might make.

    Visual Identification

    In this section, you will learn several visual cues for quickly identifying key pieces of information about the serve. He demonstrates how that information can immediately be used to make early movements to the ball. During the initial flight of the serve, players will learn to identify pace, trajectory, and movement of the ball.

    Tools to Combat Movement on the Serve

    To help your athletes adjust to the ball, Ker shows four different footwork patterns, one for each of the passing movements necessary for success. The benefit of each movement is discussed by Coach Ker, as well as the philosophy behind each concept. He also talks about the advantages and disadvantages of every move he trains.

    Coach Ker identifies three of the most common cues he uses during matches to quickly communicate to his players: "press this ball to the net," "make me jump set," and "see the ball to the sweet spot." All of these cues are proactive, goal-driven messages that players can immediately apply during the speed and chaos of a match.

    Various drills are demonstrated that will help you train the vision and footwork of your players. Each drill is explained in-depth and demonstrated several times, giving you a great idea of how to teach these techniques to your team.

    This video provides an outstanding overview of the visual tools and applications of passing the ball in serve receive for coaches of all levels. Using the information taught by Coach Ker will increase your passers' ability to start each rally in-system.
