  • 11/27/15--22:00: Progressing Your Setters
  • with Lizzy Stemke, University of Georgia Head Coach;
    former Assistant Coach (setters) at the University of Nebraska; named one of the country's Top 10 Assistant Coaches by Volleyball Magazine in 2010, coached 2x All American setters at Nebraska; 2x AVCA All-American player at the University of Wisconsin; member of the US National Team

    Lizzy Stemke has created one of the most comprehensive setting videos you'll find. Not only are you getting a video that teaches the mechanics of setting, this video is loaded with drills to completely train the setter. She teaches how to progress setters from novice to advance skill levels by highlighting:

    • Clean contact
    • Quick movement
    • Court awareness
    • Vision
    • Listening
    The fundamental drills for younger athletes focus on a part of setting that most coaches overlook - the hands. Each of these drills builds on a series of steps that include catch and set, 1-2 set and regular setting. These steps are used in every drill that Coach Stemke presents throughout the video.

    Acknowledging that much of a game is played out of system, Stemke spends significant time working movement patterns essential to getting to a ball off the net. These movement patterns range from just off the net to sets that need to be made off of one foot or with the forearms. All movement drills go in both directions, on and off the net to help the setter feel coordinated going in any direction. Stemke stresses that good, consistent footwork will produce consistent sets.

    Once players are sound in fundamental movements and squaring up, emergency moves are added to include an outside plant and inside spin. By teaching these movements, you can help your setters become more confident in putting up hittable balls off of difficult passes. As your setters advance, Stemke offers methods for training their third dimension senses by adding voice and sight into drills.

    In this video, Coach Stemke presents a wide variety of drills to fine tune your setter's mechanics. You will see simple drills that can be progressed into complex and challenging drills as your players develop. This easy-to-follow video progresses the athlete step-by-step to the next skill so a young or advanced setter will be challenged and motivated!

    Whether you're a setting coach or not, whether you work with novice setters or experienced setters, whether you need to progress your offense or solve spot problems, this video can help. The stronger your setters become, the stronger your team will become, so don't pass up this great opportunity to advance your team to the next level!

    with Staffan Elgelid, PT, Ph.D., CFT;
    Nazareth College of Rochester Associate Professor of Physical Therapy

    Yoga brings an effective, innovative approach to volleyball training.

    Featuring demonstrations by a yoga teacher and a volleyball player, Dr. Staffan Elgelid explains the crucial elements and importance of each pose, along with variations to accommodate players of differing strengths.

    Included is a handy "pose library" that features demonstrations of each pose used in the routines.

    This presentation is broken down into four 10 minute yoga routines that can easily be incorporated into a volleyball practice without the use of extra equipment. Each routine showcases a specific focus.

    • Flexibility Routine - Each pose in this routine promotes the flexibility required to limit injury. Included is a 10-minute running clock, so players can determine their progress in the routine.
    • Strength Routine - Yoga can strengthen muscles that may be overlooked in the weight room. These poses work muscle groups in an alternative manner to traditional strength training, giving players a fresh experience to their training regimen. Players practice poses that build core strength, overhead movement and spine flexibility.
    • Balance Routine - This segment addresses overuse that occurs in typical volleyball players. By building equal strength in each arm and leg, players will enjoy a better sense of balance, which will limit overuse injuries.
    • Relaxation Routine - Learning to control your mind and relax as a volleyball player allows your body to do what it needs to do on the court without being "tight," which leads to making mistakes. This routine can be used at the end of practice or by players individually before bedtime.

    Players of all levels can get tired and unmotivated by traditional training methods, so implementing these routines into your program will bring a fresh perspective to training while maintaining the level of fitness required for volleyball athletes.

    University of Louisville Head Coach;2010 and 2011 USA Select National Team Lead Coach; former St. Louis University Head Coach, 3x A-10 Coach of the Year; 2012 AVCA President

    Keep your ball carts full and your players working while perfecting fundamental techniques! Anne Kordes delivers key strategies you can use to run high-rep practices with one court and one coach.

    Coach Kordes demonstrates how you can reduce long lines in your practices and teach key volleyball skills using creative drill stations. She explains each drill, how to set it up, provides pointers to effectively use the drills and highlights technique cues to ensure the reps are high quality.

    Here are just a few examples of the drill stations and progressions included:

    • Setting Stations. These stations train footwork, setting to target, back setting and catch and throw training.
    • Ball Control Progression. This progression provides a four-station rotation that trains footwork for shuffling, movement patterns, platform angles, and tipping down the line.
    • Butterfly Drill. This drill is a full court activity to work the platform. The drill provides options for adding pressure to the passer and providing different looks like a punch serve, full serve and cross court pass.
    • Knee Pad Touch Drill. This competitive, player initiated drill will get your players moving while working on passing skills and conditioning.
    • Pre-match Reps. Includes a progression of game-day warm-ups. This includes serving, passing, hitting and defense. A great way to get max reps before a match.
    Other drills and progressions work on blocking, hitting, defense and more!

    Throughout this information packed presentation, you will see how Kordes incorporates on-the-fly skill instruction as the only coach on the court, a great model for all coaches to achieve a technique intensive, maximum reps opportunities.

    with Max Miller,
    Club Director and Owner of Mintonette Sports;
    Back-to-Back 2013 and 2014 USAV National Champions (2013-14);
    University of Northwestern Ohio Head Coach;
    former Bishop Hartley (OH) High School Head Coach, 2011 Ohio State Champions

    Looking for drills emphasizing transition that cover all phases of the game? Look no further!

    Max Miller shares his expertise in creating a variety of transition drills, beginning with warm-up all the way through highly-competitive work. Miller emphasizes working all athletes in all positions and challenging them to work in positions outside their comfort zones. The drills create situations in which some positions aren't available, forcing other positions to rise to the challenge of terminating points.

    Transition Drills

    Defensive specialists, outside hitters, middles and back row can all be the center of focus for improving transition skills. Miller shows you how to use different transition drills to focus on specific positions. Drills start with 1v1 and develop into 6v6 play, with several variations of each. Scoring options to provide additional competitiveness are presented with regard to the needs of your team. Drills include:

    • 2v2 drill - Blocker transitions to attack, second passer passes and sets the second ball. Encourages communication and also introduces another player into the drill.
    • 5v5 middle focus drill - Focuses on middle blocker transition off the net to make them available for an attack.
    • 6 vs 3 back row - The focus for this drill is for blockers to get their block-kills from a triple-block and then transition to score.
    • 10 before 6, 6 vs 3 - A competitive team game focusing on terminating and catching balls.

    All drills can be adjusted to accommodate different skill levels. Drills can also work cooperatively to encourage consistent continuation of the drill, or they can be worked competitively for more advanced levels of play.

    Transition means working harder than the other team, according to Coach Miller. This video provides drills to achieve that relentless work ethic!

    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.

    featuring Mick Haley,
    USC Head Women's Volleyball Coach;
    2x national champions (2002 and 2003),
    six NCAA Final Four appearances (2002, 2003, 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2011);
    2011 Pac-12 Coach of the Year; 2003 AVCA National Coach of the Year; 2000 US Women's Olympic Volleyball Coach; 6x NJCAA Champion; over 1,150 career wins; Distinguished member of the AVCA Hall of Fame (2006)

    Take a front-row seat at series of pre-season, USC Women's Volleyball practices. For the first time ever, Mick Haley shares his practice structure with you, letting you in on the drills, techniques and coaching tips that has positioned the Ladies of Troy as one of the top programs in the nation.

    Day one delivers various station work including passing, setting, middle hitting, defense, and 6-on-6 play. Listen in as Coach Haley corrects, instructs and teaches his athletes how to "Load" and "Balance." You'll also learn why USC has added 45 minutes of daily "pre-hab" exercises to their practices!

    As the series unfolds skills are added and put together, and the speed of practice increases. Focus turns to the middle blockers, passers, and setters as Coach Haley shares many important tips such how to pick up the trajectory of served balls, the importance of "being responsible", and making sure footwork is faster than the ball. Focus continues on balance, and Haley reiterates "push and re-balance" on defense.

    You'll also get to sit in on a team film session. Coach Haley and his assistants break down video coverage of a prior team scrimmage. This session gives valuable insight into defensive positioning and philosophy, as well as offensive strategy.

    Following the film session, the team hits the court for drills. Starting with a serve and chase warm-up drill, this practice follows with an out of system setting drill that will help your offense get quality swings when out of system for all players and a fast-paced digging drill that will get your players many quality defensive touches in a short amount of time.

    Haley breaks down player placement and responsibilities in attacker coverage. The team then breaks into station drills, as servers and passers work together while setters work on set location. The practice concludes with a servers vs. passers competition to simulate competitive situations and to create a fun, challenging atmosphere.

    An evening practice features a team-building session in the classroom, led by a sports psychologist. This session covers team rules and team support. The players help to define the qualities that they strive to incorporate into their culture, and discuss team bonding and motivational traditions.

    The final practice features small-group stations on multiple courts, which are skill-focused. The team then comes together for a full team "goal-based" scrimmage that helps train player focus and intensity. The remainder of practice includes three fast-paced digging drills, individual serving repetitions and 6 vs 6 drills that emphasize out of system transition to attack.

    with Bre Johnson,
    Marshall (MI) High School Head Coach

    As anyone who has coached beginner volleyball to young players knows, keeping the attention of the players is job number one. Bre Johnson understands what it takes to teach youth volleyball to all skill levels.

    In this video, Coach Johnson demonstrates how to teach basic skills to players as young as 5 years old, as well as older players that are just taking up the sport of volleyball. She demonstrate drills to train players on how to pass, set, hit, block and serve. What makes her coaching style so effective is that, while breaking down the skill, she uses fun terms for each of the physical movements of a skill so that players can remember the progression of each skill.

    Dynamic Warm-up and Movement Drills

    Incorporate dynamic warm-up exercises for your youth players. Johnson goes through different warm-up options that you can implement in your practice, from hand eye coordination to footwork. She does a great job at making the drills both fun and effective in order to keep younger players engaged while they warm up.

    Platform Training

    Johnson illustrates the proper form that is required for passing and teaches players to remember by using "fun terms" while teaching this skill. Once the platform has been taught, she progresses to a number of progressive passing drills that teach how to shuffle while keeping the platform static.

    Four Points of Setting

    The basics of setting are taught to youth players using Johnson's "four points of setting" that are belly button, five head, finish and follow-through. As with all the other skills, Johnson progresses with a number of drills so that the players can get plenty of reps while learning the skill.

    Coach Johnson does a wonderful job of teaching the basic fundamentals of volleyball in a fun and energetic way so that young players can learn and stay focused!

    with Kevin Hambly,
    Stanford University Head Coach;
    former University of Illinois Head Coach;
    2011 NCAA Runners-up; 2011 Volleyball Magazine Coach of the Year; President of the AVCA Board of Directors

    Are you looking for a simple method to break down the art of setting to teach your setter? This is the video you will want to pick up.

    In this volume of Kevin Hambly's coach-, player-, and parent-friendly series, he teaches how the key components of being a successful setter can be taught, learned and practiced. Coach Hambly has an experienced college setter demonstrate balanced, efficient posture and movements then walks a less experienced player through how to execute the same "Go Posture" and technique.

    Some of the essentials for successful setting at any level include:

    • Beginning in a balanced, neutral "Go Posture"
    • Facing the action of the ball before making the set
    • Using whole hands to contact the ball (not just fingers)
    • Using body torque to generate setting power
    • Finishing palms (not fingers) to the target

    This DVD covers every aspect of setting technique from how to fundamentally prepare for the ball, move to the ball, and contact the ball to how to handle more difficult, out-of-system, realistic match play situations such as:

    • Back setting
    • Pass setting
    • Tempo Setting
    • High Ball Setting
    • Setting out of the bottom of the net
    • Setting out from the top of the net

    Your setter touches nearly one out of every ball on your side, wouldn't you want those to be good touches? Coach Hambly's instruction makes it easy for your setter to check themselves on each component. Hambly teaches your setter to set at a college caliber level, no matter what their age.

    with Kevin Hambly,
    Stanford University Head Coach;
    former University of Illinois Head Coach;
    2011 NCAA Runners-up; 2011 Volleyball Magazine Coach of the Year; President of the AVCA Board of Directors

    Kevin Hambly presents his method of teaching beginning athletes the fundamentals of a powerful attack. He breaks the attack down into a natural progression of skills, which gives coaches of any level, as well as parents or fellow athletes, the steps they need to develop solid hitting skills.

    Coach Hambly covers the skill of hitting with focus on the arm-swing, approach, and vertical jump. He uses some of his college players to demonstrate his detailed progressions for teaching hitting, and then he teaches younger players to execute the same safe, aggressive hitting movements. Listening to Hambly's teaching points as he corrects the young athletes will help you know how to help your aspiring volleyball players.

    In teaching an effective attack from start to finish or movement, Hambly walks his players through a progression of movements in which each step builds on the previously learned technique. His progression involves putting the following steps together:

    • Throwing
    • Attacking from the ground
    • Working vertical movement
    • Approaching to attack

    His drill progressions show great insight into the bio-mechanics of the swing and how to train players to perfect the motions. See how he uses tennis balls to help players get the hang of the swing mechanics without having to worry about the timing of hitting a ball. The use of the throwing technique and tennis balls in Hambly's drills really help athletes get the feel for the motion of the swing. He shows some great drills that can be used to work on all of the keys to hitting and goes into great depth on how to toss and when to toss for each drill.

    After arm swing is covered, athletes begin to work on their approach, taking their horizontal movement and turning it into vertical. You will learn why the last two steps are so important in transferring movement to vertical. Hambly focuses on slow to fast efficient movement, removing any unnecessary motion. The video finishes with the slide approach which Hambly explains is a great skill for more experienced players.

    As he takes both levels of athletes through the progressions, one skill is focused on at a time. This singular focus really allows the athletes to fine tune one skill before moving on. Even after moving to the next layer, Hambly only stresses the current skill being taught. Revisiting these skills over and over will develop the consistency a high level athlete needs.

    At several points in the video Hambly stops to give advice to parents or athletes who want to train without access to a volleyball court. This allows for driven athletes to get more training time in even when they can't get to a court. Additionally, his teaching is easy to understand, with terminology that anyone can understand. Finally advice on how to toss a volleyball for a hitter!

    Whether you're a coach, player or parent of a player, this video will be a useful tool in teaching and learning how to become an aggressive attacker while maintaining safe movement to prevent injury. Any coach, player or parent will feel very confident in their hitting training after watching this very detailed video.

    Kevin Hambly has created a coach-, player-, and parent-friendly series that demonstrates efficient movement and controlled passing, and the methods to teach them. Coach Hambly has experienced college athletes demonstrate balanced, efficient posture and movement then teaches younger, less experienced players how to execute the same "Go Posture" and movements.

    Hambly takes the time to carefully explain, demonstrate and teach how to successfully move and execute controlled passes. He emphasizes these key points to both experienced and inexperienced players:

    • Begin in balanced, neutral "Go Posture" - Good posture makes it much easier to move to pass when starting with good posture
    • Initiate movement in any direction with body's center - This will help create a consistent passing platform
    • Face the line of the serve to pass from body's center - This gives the passer proper platform contact minimizing potential for passing errors
    • Act on the ball by initiating contact and finishing - The player acts on and controls the ball opposed to being acted on and controlled by the ball (or opponent)

    After laying a solid foundation or balanced movement and controlled passing, Hambly spends time with overhead passing for those advanced players ready to tackle the increased challenge.

    With each key, he takes the athletes through progressions that quickly get them passing with good form and accuracy. Each key is taught with singular focus. Hambly believes the athletes learn better by focusing on only one thing at a time. This singular focus allows for a more thorough understanding of each key. Points that are not mastered can be revisited at another time rather than making multiple corrections at one time. Developing movement patterns is extremely important so athletes don't have to think about technique when the ball is in play. Athletes will need a great many repetitions of these skills before they will become masters of their craft.

    As with the other videos in this series, Coach Hambly gives parent and players advice on how to train outside of the volleyball court, as well as tips for initiating the ball so that drill work can be as efficient and effective as possible. Hambly's easy, conversational style makes this video a benefit for coaches and athletes of all skill levels. Simple keywords and phrases for each key are valuable for the beginning coach or a parent helping their athlete improve.

    Have you ever watched a team that passed nearly every serve to target, nearly every hit to make it playable, and thought, "I wish my team passed like that". This video will train you and your players to do exactly that and frustrate all other teams you play.

    Everyone knows "how to serve", but do they know how to serve correctly? Kevin Hambly has created a coach-, player-, and parent-friendly series to show how successful serving can be taught, learned and practiced efficiently.

    As he moves from skill to skill, Coach Hambly has his experienced players show how it is done and then he brings in younger players who are being taught the skills for the first time. He actually teaches these young players on the spot and then shows how to correct some parts of the movements with them until they are doing everything correctly. Time and again Coach Hambly emphasizes that coaches teaching skills should allow for singular focus during drills and players wanting to achieve advanced skill levels must put in the time to get the high number of reps to reach their goal.

    Acknowledging that his athletes are at different levels and have different strengths, Hambly lays basic serving foundation then progresses players through a variety of advanced serves based on their own strengths and skill levels including:

    • Standing Float
    • Jump Float
    • Jump Slide Float
    • Jump Top Spin

    Hambly emphasizes the same key points to all players regardless of skill level:

    • Start slow - finish fast
    • Use bow and arrow form
    • Finish to target
    • Make good hand contact
    • Drive through

    After teaching sound serving technique, players go through various drills to work strategic serving be hitting target zones, moving passers side-to-side, and moving passers short and deep. Having the ability to make passers move into each other and towards sidelines can increase the potential for serve receive errors or force your opponent into out-of-system situations. Coach Hambly wraps up by reiterating that players wanting to become skilled servers have to put the time in to achieve their goal.

    Whether you're a coach, player or even parent of a player, this video will prove helpful in achieving serving goals!

    In this edition of the AAU Volleyball Skills Series, Kevin Hambly teaches coaches, athletes, and parents how they can improve individual defensive skills. In an easy to understand style, Coach Hambly takes both college athletes and young players through a series of drill progressions that will improve the defense of any level player. Listen in as he corrects technique in each drill; you will learn what to watch for as you teach and train your athletes.

    In the first section of the video, Hambly introduces the "go posture," a ready position that takes the pressure off the back and allows athletes to move quickly and effectively to any ball. He begins every drill with catching the ball instead of passing; if you can't catch it, you can't dig it! As athletes become adept at the movement, they begin to dig the ball. The key to effective training is to progress from easy to hard.

    The beginning drills have the athletes working stationary, but they are quickly moving to the ball in the next level. When movement is entered in, you will learn to teach your athletes to get their center to the ball, initiate contact and then finish the dig to get the ball high and create a swing.

    Each progression cycles back and reinforces elements from the previous drill before adding more complex skills. Coach Hambly also shares ways less experienced coaches or parents can enter the ball in drill so that athletes still get maximum value out of their training time. Accuracy in the toss or hit helps athletes to be successful.

    In the final segment, more advanced individual defensive techniques are covered. From extension moves to overhead digging, this section will help prepare experienced athletes for higher levels of play.

    Create a defense that is relentless and gives your team the best opportunity of scoring. A tough defense will beat a good offense nearly all the time, so wouldn't you want the best chance to go undefeated?

    This is the ultimate tool for any coach looking to train a player to be a libero. Kevin Hambly has created the perfect video to teach the role and skills of the libero to coaches, parents and athletes. Coach Hambly breaks down the role of the libero, explaining the importance of footwork, using your center of gravity, making a correct platform, moving around the court and keeping your distance from the net.

    He starts by explaining the "go posture" and the importance of the athlete starting in this stance. He progresses them into moving side to side, catching the ball and then bumping it. He shows a proper platform and then shows how to correct the younger players. He moves on to the skills of digging, overhand digging, passing and setting. Hambly provides various tips for liberos and goes through several advanced but critical skills:

    • Double Down Dig
    • Shin Dig
    • Overhand Dig
    • Set

    Coach Hambly talks about coverage, the role of the libero on a team, and how to identify the best player for the libero position. He covers every aspect of being a libero in easy to understand segments that are easy to understand and master.

    As he moves from skill to skill, Coach Hambly has his experienced players show how it is done and then he brings in younger players who are being taught the skills for the first time. He actually teaches these young players on the spot and then shows how to correct some parts of the movements with them until they are doing everything correctly. Time and again Coach Hambly emphasizes that coaches teaching skills should allow for singular focus during drills and players wanting to achieve advanced skill levels must put in the time to get the high number of reps to reach their goal.

    This DVD will help you identify a player in your system who would best fit the libero role and it gives you all the skills to train her/him properly.

    2011 Volleyball Magazine Coach of the Year Kevin Hambly provides step-by-step instruction for teaching and practicing effective blocking. This instruction is geared to the athlete, coach and parent

    Give your blocker a chance to score off of every hit, even if you have shorter blockers!

    Coach Hambly breaks it down into its most simple components; footwork, arm work, and eye work. His ability to break down each aspects into smaller parts allows a coach at any level teach and learn what to watch for on blockers to be more successful. He goes through each key of blocking by using the older players to demonstrate, and uses younger players to actually show how he teaches the skill.

    In this video, Coach Hambly demonstrates various hand positions and arm movements and when to teach and use each. Arm movement may need to vary based on player strength and skill level, and hand position can vary based on attack angle to put up the most effective block possible. Hambly also emphasizes the importance of involving the body's core for solid blocking movements.

    Once the foundation has been laid with good posture, hand position, arm movement and core involvement, Hambly progresses players through various footwork patterns. Developing strong skills in different footwork sequences provides players with the tools to get on the attacker efficiently regardless of their location along the net.

    Once they have base movements and footwork mastered, Hambly has players progress through drills to work various other aspects of blocking such as:

    • Soft block
    • Eye sequence
    • Independent arms

    The skills demonstrated in this video will help coaches, players and even parents of players in teaching and learning how to become an effective blocker regardless of skill level or size. Add this one to your library today!

    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.

    In volleyball, movement skills are the most important first skills to teach to young players. In this presentation, Cheryl Butler demonstrates how to incorporate movement and ball control drills into every practice in a short amount of time.

    Coach Butler introduces a series of volleyball-specific movement drills that will not only get players warmed up, but will also teach the proper moving technique required to excel in volleyball. Although these movement drills are great for players of all ages, Coach Butler encourages introducing them to girls at a young age, even before they start to learn how to play volleyball.

    Coach Butler uses two different age groups to demonstrate each drill. As players ages 11-13 are taken through the more advanced version of each drill, Coach Butler shows how to modify each drill for first through fifth graders. Modifying these drills for younger players establishes a great foundation at an earlier age.

    Movement Drills for Warm-up
    Coach Butler starts with warm-up drills using volleyball movements without a ball. This is the "active warm-up" technique that her teams use at the beginning of every practice. The series includes eight different shuffle drills that can be completed in less than 10 minutes; defensive posture, shuffle steps, directional movements and change of direction are covered. A blocking movement drill is also shown with a variation that can be used with very young players.

    Use the techniques in this segment to help players simultaneously execute proper volleyball movements and warm up properly.

    Ball Control Movement Drills
    Many ball control drills are done while the athletes are stationary, which is unrealistic to the sport of volleyball. Coach Butler shares a series of movement drills that focus on ball control. These drills work on passing and setting while in motion. They require movement and many of them will work on controlling the ball outside the midline of the body.

    Partner drills are shown (can be used with both platform passing and overhead passing) that require court movement in order to keep the ball alive. Serve receive movements are practiced during a drill that requires players to move forward to receive short serves, and drop and shuffle back to receive deep serves. Coaches who want to improve their serve receive passing will find these drills beneficial and easy to implement.

    Defensive Movement Drills
    The final section of the presentation focuses on defense and movement drills. These drills create fast-paced, chaotic situations that require players to stay under control and dig the ball to target. These are multi-player drills that will also require a high level of communication among players. The intensity of these drills will really help players prepare for the pace of fast action rallies in game situations.

    Movement is the basis of all skills. Athletes who understand the proper way to move to a ball will be more successful in each skill. Coach Butler gives you many great drills to help you get your players moving.

    "The great part is with every drill that she presents with talented 13U players demonstrating, she also uses a group of 1st-5th grade players to demonstrate a modified version of the drill so they can be successful as well. The skills and drills that are being worked on are things that even college players need to practice on a regular basis." - Shawn Stoliker

    nine NCAA Tournament berths in the last 10 years, including seven Sweet 16 appearances, and Elite Eight appearances in 2010 and 2013; 2011 Big Ten Coach of the Year

    Purdue Head Women's Volleyball Coach Dave Shondell pulls back the curtain on how he trains his team in the pre-season. Coach Shondell shows you how he develops high standards for execution and effort by establishing technique, a relentless attitude and a strong sense of competitiveness.

    Practice 1, Day 1
    This practice focuses on individual passing and passing fundamentals. The drills in this segment emphasize passing balls outside the body and moving to the ball. You'll discover what Coach Shondell believes to be the most important teaching cues when it comes to passing balls that are outside the body or involve movement.

    You'll not only hear Coach Shondell teach these techniques, you'll also see players fully engaged in drills that reinforce these skills. Although this portion of the practice primarily emphasizes passing, you'll also see blocking footwork drills performed by middle blockers, swing mechanic drills with middles and outsides and defensive digging drills. Team huddles before and after drills will give you an idea of the focus of each drill.

    Practice 2, Day 1
    Practice two of this two-a-day series features position-specific station work.

    • Liberos and defensive specialists practice passing balls hit to a variety of locations.
    • Setters work on transition and different types of sets.
    • Middles practice transition footwork.

    The camera moves from station to station to show how to run a practice that works on multiple skill sets simultaneously.

    The second half of the presentation is all team play, including serve receive work and competitive games. You'll see games that really push athletes to compete. Throughout the presentation, Coach Shondell pulls his players together to talk about what he sees, what needs improvement, what looks good and what strategies they are focusing on in the drills. You'll good sense of what needs to be done to improve all different types of skills.

    Practice, Day 2
    Practice begins with station work split between two courts. On one court, setters work with middles and outside hitters on attacking mechanics. Arm swing and ball contact are emphasized throughout these drills. On the second court, coaches work with passers on receiving different types of served balls. The drills rotate the serve locations so that passers can work on their movement to the ball.

    After station work the practice shifts to defensive-minded drills where players work on blocking and digging. The drills in this segment range from individual to full-team drills with a focus on defensive skills.

    The last part of the practice is straight up team play. Throughout these games, the coaching staff critiques players, giving them feedback and corrections on their skills and techniques.

    With All Access look, you'll go right inside Coach Shondell's team huddles before practice and before each drill and hear how he motivates his players to maximize their performance.

    Practice, Day 3
    This session focuses on developing leadership skills among key players and using fast-paced drills to set the tone and culture for hardworking practices.

    First, Coach Shondell has an in-depth discussion with his players about leadership and what it will take from them to become their best.

    The team then breaks up into station work where defensive specialists continue working on their passing and setters and hitters move to a different court to work on offensive attacks. The hitters get to work on attacks such as 4's, 9's, gaps, slides and combination plays. This segment is a great example of how to work various attacks with the left sides, middles and right sides.

    This presentation gives coaches a good idea of what an efficient practice looks like while still covering many facets of the game such as defense, offense, passing, serving and game play.

    Use your practice time as efficiently as possible. Nancy Dorsey shows you how with a complete arsenal of fast-paced drills that are easily integrated into any high school practice plan. She also shares several progressions and adjustments for different levels of players.

    Using players on the court, Coach Dorsey demonstrates 11 drills that touch on all aspects of the game. She shows drills that get players involved and moving throughout the entire practice. She makes every drill competitive to simulate a game-like situation, and conditions the players through the various drills. Coach Dorsey explains how each drill can be simplified for less experienced players or made more challenging for advanced players.

    Coach Dorsey shows six drills that focus on passing skills. These drills give passers multiple reps, passing in all different types of situations. Players are pushed out of their comfort zones as they compete in drills where a specific goal must be achieved. These drills pit passers against passers, and servers against passers. Some are done cooperatively to teach players how to work together to accomplish a common purpose. As an added value, these drills condition players, saving time in practice where conditioning sessions usually take place.

    The next segment of drills, which works the offense and defense together, focuses on the attacking aspect of the game while having the defense work against the hitters. These drills also give players a chance to practice multiple positions on the floor, defensively and offensively.

    Coach Dorsey explains that scrimmaging without a purpose in practice will not help players improve. She introduces a game called Baseball that challenges teams in all six rotations while keeping things extremely fun. This drill provides the same intensity as scrimmaging but in a more purpose-driven way allowing coaches opportunities to stop the action and make points and corrections.

    This presentation single-handedly gives coaches a complete practice that involves all players and all aspects of the game. Players get an incredibly powerful conditioning workout while being pushed to their limits.

    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.
