    with Nancy Dorsey,
    St. James Academy (KS) Head Coach; 6x Kansas Class 5A state champions;
    VBM 2013 High School Team of the Year;
    American Family Insurance 2013 All-USA Volleyball Coach of the Year;
    finished the 2013 season ranked #1 nationally by PrepVolleyball.com; won 56 straight matches from 2012-13; lost only one set in 2013 (finishing 96-1); 370 wins in first 8 years as head coach (2005-13)

    Nancy Dorsey uses her expertise as a high school coach to demonstrate and explain how to implement a 6-2 offense. To help you decide if this offense is right for your team, she explains the positives and negatives of running a 6-2. The information she shares is perfect for any new coach or a coach who is running the 6-2 for the first time. Coach Dorsey's presentation gives all the basic alignments for serve, serve receive, and base positioning for each rotation. You'll also gain insight into different rotational and hitting options at each level.

    Coach Dorsey walks viewers through each rotation of the 6-2. She explains where players stand for each rotation and how to avoid overlap. She demonstrates serve receive systems and shows where each player should move to for their base defense. Coach Dorsey's explanations include tips on what coaches should look for as they teach this offense. She discusses pros and cons of the 6-2, and shares practice methods to combat the cons.

    While walking through the 6-2 offense, Coach Dorsey shows the different options available for serve receive positioning and attack. Players are shown where to line up so they can get as close as possible to their touch point.

    Coach Dorsey shares drills that are great for improving siding out, playing defense and serving aggressively in the 6-2, as well as the importance of point scoring. All drills focus on getting into good serve receive position and transition to base defense while receiving serves, down balls and free balls. The 3 Serve drill promotes competition while practicing side-out and point scoring efficiency.

    This is a great presentation for new coaches who want to learn how and why to use a 6-2 offense. The best part of the presentation is Coach Dorsey's fantastic job of discussing the overlap rules and what your players need to look out for so they do not get called for being out of rotation.

    The 5-1 offense is one of the more complicated schemes to run because it has two sets of skills to teach, one when the setter is in the back row and one when they are in the front row. Nancy Dorsey goes beyond teaching you the technical aspects of building a 5-1 offense. She does a great job explaining the challenges your setter will face, which enables you to address those concerns before confronting them in a game situation.

    Coach Dorsey lays out the offense showing you how to teach it. More importantly, she demonstrates organized games to teach players how to execute the 5-1 offense. Through repetitive actions and dealing with "all" situations, a team gets ready for what happens in match play. Coach Dorsey shares several drills that teach players how to run the offense and how to deal with any challenges that arise. She uses game-like situations to help make responses automatic and natural.

    Coach Dorsey does an excellent job teaching throughout the presentation, showing different vantage points and anticipating questions and offering possible solutions.

    Coach Dorsey, who has had great success running a 5-1 in her volleyball program, shares the knowledge and expertise that will make your attempts at the 5-1 just as successful.

  • 06/26/15--22:00: Running a Fast Tempo Offense
  • with Matt Peck,
    Middle Tennessee State Women's Volleyball Coach;
    4x Sun Belt Conference Tournament champions, 2x Sun Belt conference Coach of the Year

    Increase your team's aggressiveness and overall attacking speed!

    Matt Peck guides you through the technique, timing, and strategy for generating a quick-tempo attack out of serve receive and defense. This quick-tempo offense will challenge your opponents and create favorable match-ups for your hitters!Coach Peck breaks his instruction down into six parts:

    Passing Tempo: Coach Peck explains the form and technique used for driving quick, flat passes toinitiate a quick-tempo offense and provides goals for the amount of time the pass should take to getfrom the passer to the setter.

    Serve Receive Offense: This segment explains how to run a diverse, multiple hitter quick-attackoffense without calling set plays. Peck explains how hitters should call their attacks based onthe look provided by the defense and how the setters can read the blockers in order to get their hittersin 1-on-1 and zero blocker situations.

    Play Sets: Coach Peck provides technique and timing cues for running a zero-tempo quick attack (infront of and behind the setter) and "three" attack with the middle blocker. He also gives technique andtiming cues for running a "thirty two" and "two" attack with the outside hitter.

    Controlled Serve Receive: This is a progressive fast-paced drill that allows hitters and setters to cyclethrough and get many quality repetitions out of serve receive. Starting with just hitters and settersworking off the pass to establish timing, Peck discusses strategies to stress opposingblockers. Blockers are then added to the drill, challenging both the offense and defense.

    Opposite: Coach Peck gives technique and timing cues for running quick-tempo back set attacks to thepin, seam, and just off the setter. He explains how the approach footwork and set tempo differs forright and left-handed attackers. Transition footwork progressions are provided for opposites andmiddles to get from the block to the attack.

    Transition: The final segment examines how to effectively transition from the block to the attack andgenerate scoring opportunities by staying in tempo. Coach Peck first explains basic transition footworkpatterns using "turn and run" and "shuffle" techniques. He then demonstrates the "jab approach"technique, which allows attackers to maintain a quick tempo when they do not have time to get off thenet. A progressive set of transition drills shows how to get quality transition repetitions out of multipledefensive situations, and the video ends with a live scrimmage in order to show all of these techniquesused in a game setting.

    This entire video takes place on the court and all of the techniques and drills are performed by live demonstrators. There is an incredible amount of live-action play used to show these concepts naturally occurring in game situations. Throughout this informative presentation, Coach Peck provides running commentary and timely insights into the action taking place on the court.

    Get the drills and strategies you need to make your opponents scramble to keep up with your fast tempo offense.

    with Jen Fry, Elon University Assistant Coach;
    former assistant coach at Washington State University, University of Illinois (Final four team) and the USA Volleyball High Performance Championship Junior Continental team

    In the fast-moving sport of volleyball, players are expected to do and see many things at once. However, coaches often times do not cover this aspect of the game in practice. In this dynamic presentation, Jen Fry demonstrates ways to teach players to get all their senses involved in the volleyball action. She also covers ways to improve players' ball control skills so they can be more aggressive and get more swings. These drills will help teams improve their eye work, passing, setting, court movement and out-of-system offense.

    The first series of drills helps players train their eyes to transition back and forth when playing. This skill helps athletes play the ball while taking note of their surroundings. Coach Fry demonstrates three variations of a basic partner ball control drill using a white ball and a colored ball. The focus of these drills is to train players to quickly move their eyes from one ball to another, which helps them see the whole court and all of the activity on it including the location of the ball, where the block is, how the other team is set up and so on. In addition, these drills add an element of chaos that teaches players to remain calm and in control during pressure game situations.

    Improving "second ball touches" or out-of-system balls can lead to more swings and less free balls. The majority of a volleyball match is played out of system but many coaches neglect training their players in this area. Coach Fry demonstrates bounce drills to practice setting out-of-system balls high and inside so hitters can get swings. Players will work with ball control using their platform and hands from all different locations on the court. Setter drills are shown that can also be run using "second ball touchers" or non-setters to get more reps setting out of system balls. These drills increase non-setters' confidence in their ability to set up a hitter when the setter cannot take second ball.

    In addition, Coach Fry shows variations of 2-on-2 drills, using two balls, then adding a third ball, and even a fourth, to train players to think and move their eyes quickly.

    As players progress from younger teams to high school, the biggest change is the speed of the game. These drills help the players keep up with that increase in speed by training them to transfer their eyes quickly and be ready for the next play.

    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.

    with Bryan Bunn,
    North Carolina State Head Women's Volleyball Coach

    I have honestly never seen a video that covers so much for the setter position. - Shawn Stoliker, Millbrook (NY) High School Varsity Volleyball Coach

    Take any setter with beginner, intermediate or advanced skills, and move her to the next level with the drills in this presentation. North Carolina State Head Coach Bryan Bunn covers everything you need to know to train your setter mentally, physically and technically to be successful in game action.

    Setter Fundamentals
    Train your setters to master the fundamentals like starting position, body position and hand position on the ball.

    You will see a series of drills that gives setters reps from different locations on the court and to different attacking positions. These drills create opportunities for setters to practice in game-like situations instead of standing still. Each drill shows how to set to both left- and right-side hitters. They can be used to train novice setters and to refine the skills of more experienced ones.

    Situational Drills
    In this segment, you will learn how to train game-like situations that setters must master in order to run an effective offense. Skills for addressing these situations include jump setting, tight pass sets, spin moves on bad passes and setting after the block. Coach Bunn's players demonstrate each drill as he discusses the correct way to perform various skills while giving constant feedback on areas that need improvement.

    These fast-paced, high-action drills cover concepts like covering hitters, spatial awareness, opponents' defensive vision, and defensive positioning.

    In the drill "Nines Cover Tip," setters set a back set, turn and cover a tip, dig the tip to themselves and turn and set the high ball to the left side. This drill, performed in a controlled setting, is an amazing simulation of the of fast-paced, chaotic action of a rally.

    The segment also introduces drills that work on emergency techniques, releasing from each rotational spot, ball control, speed to the ball and developing a feel for the ball-all of which are important setter skills.

    Characteristics and Priorities of a Setter
    Coach Bunn identifies and explains six important mental characteristics to look for in a setter. He also highlights the three most important priorities of a setter and gives four pieces of advice all setters can benefit from knowing.

  • 06/26/15--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!

  • 06/26/15--22:00: Developing the Slide Hitter
  • with Bond Shymansky, University of Iowa Head Coach;
    former Marquette University Head Coach; 2013 Big East Champs;
    former Georgia Tech Head Volleyball Coach; 2004 ACC Coach of the Year

    Running a slide attack is a very technical skill. In this presentation, Bond Shymansky breaks down each component of the slide attack and teaches it from the ground up. Coach Shymansky gives in-depth explanations, demonstrations and drills that take the guesswork out of coaching the slide attack.

    Building a slide hitter
    Starting with mechanics, Coach Shymansky breaks down footwork, arm swing, rhythm and timing, and adjustments. He demonstrates drills to isolate each part of the skill. Most drills involve a coach tossing the ball, although more advanced drills use the hitter and a setter. These drills give coaches everything they need to teach their players how to run a slide attack.

    Transition footwork
    The next segment focuses on transitioning off of the net to get into the correct position to run the slide attack. Coach Shymansky explains the proper positioning of the attacker and why other ways will not work.

    Again, he begins with a simple walk-through with a player and then adds the setter to make the drill more game-like. To create unpredictability, he varies the way he enters balls into the drill. This helps the hitter learn how to adjust to the tempo of the pass and set.

    One foot take-offs
    This segment shows coaches how to train all hitters from all positions at the net to run a slide or one foot take-off type of attack. This kind of attack is hard for the opponent to block and defend.

    Coach Shymansky demonstrates how to practice the slide with all of your attackers and how they can adjust their footwork from different locations at the net. Very simply put, once hitters learn the footwork and rhythm, they can do it from anywhere.

    If you're looking for one DVD that shows you how to teach the slide, this is it. Coaches will gain great knowledge in the footwork, legwork, arm preparation, arm swing and transition of the slide attack. This is a great presentation for coaches of all levels who want to increase the difficulty of their offense.

    Coach Rose showcases a series of drills that enable outside hitters to practice the movement patterns they need to master to be successful. Coach Rose shows you how to adjust the drill to see how movement patterns change based on where the ball is served. As the drill progresses, defenders and blockers are added and scoring is added to make the training more game-like.

    Blocking and Hitting Drills
    This set of drills, which includes tip coverage to attack, digging to attack and blocking to attack, gives players opportunities to block from both the left side and middle before transitioning to a good attack position. Players are trained to work hard to get a big swing coming off the block.

    Drills for Hitting Out of System
    Out-of-system drills offer the opportunity for players other than setters to practice setting the ball to outside hitters. These drills also teach hitters how to adjust for an out-of-system ball.

    Competitive Drills
    One of most beneficial drill segments in the presentation is this series of competitive drills. These drills use scoring systems to push players to compete. Coach Rose has outside hitters battle head-to-head in 6v6 games. These mini-games are scored to seven points, but only one player from each side can be set during the game. You'll see many different iterations of this drill including OH vs OH, RS vs RS, and back row attacker vs back row attacker.

    Another competitive drill is played 5v5 with no middles. Only pin hitters and pipe attackers can attack in this drill. Hitters learn how to take advantage of solo blocks, players learn how to block solo when necessary, and everyone learns how to defend when the block is not perfect.

    Conditioning for Hitters
    All of these drills feature multiple attacks and game-like contacts in rapid succession. Though conditioning is certainly a big part of these drills, Coach Rose designs them as volleyball drills first; the conditioning is just a result of the pace of the contacts.

    Coach Rose gives you numerous drills that you can start using in your gym immediately. In addition, his observation on the different roles an outside hitter must master might change how you evaluate players in the future.

    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

    with Courtney DeBolt Slinko,
    All American setter and a four-year letterwinner at Michigan State

    Former All American setter Courtney DeBolt Slinko understands the importance of great setter play. In this presentation, she presents tweaks for 10 common problem areas that setters experience. The first seven tweaks cover the physical aspects of setting and the final three deal with the mental aspects of court awareness, communication, and problem solving.

    The first line of defense for setter improvement is learning how to identify problems. Coach DeBolt Slinko discusses the problem, demonstrates it, teaches the correct skill set for the problem area and discusses how to solve the problem through simplified breakdown drills.

    Coach DeBolt Slinko believes that great setters are made outside of practice. She shares drills that players can execute on their own outside of the gym and even at home. Using two athletes-one highly experienced and the other fairly new to the sport-she demonstrates that no matter the experience level, there's always room for improvement.

    This AVCA convention session is sure to assist you in being able to consistently help your setter help themselves to identify and work through common problems. Help your setters move from good to great with the strategies shared here.

    with Rob Rose, President of True Athlete Performance in Washington, DC;
    has trained youth to pro athletes since 1995

    Rob Rose provides volleyball-specific drills and exercises that can be used to develop more powerful, efficient athletes who will be more successful on court.

    The presentation is divided into eight areas:

    Dynamic Flexibility - Discover ways to simultaneously get your players warmed up and stretched out. Players will be ready to go from these drills/exercises straight into a practice session or a competition.

    First Step and Reaction - Using a volleyball-ready position, Coach Rose takes you through three drills with multiple progressions that improve athletes' reaction time, both defensively and in transition. These drills incorporate a drop and go/quick step movement, using arms to increase foot speed, focusing on reacting rather than anticipating, and building up from a small first step.

    Agility - Using various progressions of four drills, Coaches Rose teaches using dropped hips, driving arms and a powerful first step to increase agility. These drills, demonstrated on court by volleyball players, are volleyball-specific and appropriate for athletes of all skill levels. .

    Power - Jumping is an integral part of volleyball. Coach Rose demonstrates how to improve an athlete's jump by focusing on the landing first and by fully utilizing the arms. He leads you through a jump series with hurdles to improve two-footed jumping. A linear bounding series to improve single-leg jumping is also included. Woodchoppers and push-ups are recommend to strengthen the core and thus gain more power in both jumping and swinging.

    Quickness/Reaction - Ladder drills, dot drills, hurdle hops, and shadow box drills get muscles quickly firing. Sideways and lateral movements are emphasized as volleyball-specific drills. Coach Rose demonstrates how to use the arms, stay light on the feet, and keep a small bend in the knees in order to move as quickly as possible.

    Strength - Core-based, functional strength training is the focus of this segment. Squats, single-leg stand ups, suspension push-ups, and dumbbell pullovers are some of the drills Coach Rose uses to increase strength in volleyball athletes.

    Anaerobic Endurance - Coach Rose combines drills from each of the previous segments in order to challenge athletes' anaerobic endurance. An obstacle course is a great way to add some fun to your practices while still working on improving athletes' first step, agility, power, reaction quickness and strength.

    Testing and Evaluation - Understanding your player's current strengths and weaknesses is critical to achieving maximum performance. By testing, evaluating and focused training to improve overall physical strength and conditioning, your athletes can better apply their skills on the court. Having volleyball-specific tests and exercisers ensures that time spent on conditioning delivers results on the court.

    Coach Rose shares a series of tests for each of volleyball's key physical requirements. Key measures include linear speed or first-step quickness, agility, power, quickness, strength and anaerobic endurance. Each category of testing includes two to three tests. With each test, Coach Rose provides the goal , its relevance to volleyball, test execution details, examples of players doing the test and insight into common mistakes.

    With this presentation, coaches of all levels can improve their athletes' volleyball skills by training them to use more powerful movements that are both quick and efficient. Teach your players to improve themselves so that they can be better players on the court.

    with Bond Shymansky, University of Iowa Head Coach;
    former Marquette University Head Coach; 2013 Big East Champs;
    former Georgia Tech Head Volleyball Coach; 2004 ACC Coach of the Year

    Bond Shymansky invites you to a series of pre-season practices. In this presentation, you'll see how Coach Shymansky builds a championship atmosphere using drills that develop technique, encourage competition, and inspire players on the sideline to fight for playing time.

    In the first day of practice, players concentrate basic skills such as serve receive passing, defensive digging, and setting. Middle hitters work on a progression of attack footwork and set plays. Coach Shymansky trains his hitters to keep knees and elbows up on an attack. He also teaches them to "stage at the setter," meaning hitters speed up to explode at the end of the attack. As the practice progresses, Coach Shymansky shifts focus to small group work and serve reception to meet the team's identity as a 70 percent side-out team.

    The afternoon pre-season practice emphasizes higher competition between players to increase the intensity and focus of the practice. The session starts with an hour-long repetition of basic skills and footwork using split courts. Coach Shymansky demonstrates how to handle short serves and pass placement from serve receive to offense. Digging techniques to help keep digs off the net are also demonstrated. The practice then progresses to the rhythm for play sets, and finally to game situation drills that put pressure on certain players to perform and reach the status of a "terminal hitter."

    The day two practice session involves position-specific training as well as 6-on-6 play. The goal is to get hitters to realize they can always be a part of the offense. The drills help hitters and setters focus on timing, and also helps them understand the importance of first-ball kills and keeping the serve. Coach Shymansky also works on situation drills to help with transition and running specific plays.

    You'll also see a strength and conditioning workout. The workout begins with a warm-up routine using jump ropes to train balance and speed, squat exercises using dumbbells to develop strength and stability in the lower body, and exercises to strengthen hamstrings. Throughout the workout, a strength coach demonstrates and corrects players in executing plate workouts, back squats, and band stretches from the T position, all of which are necessary in developing the muscle strength in volleyball players. Players also demonstrate ankle bends, airplanes, pushups, leg lifts, pull-ups, and inverted rows.

    The final practice session is a showcase of drills developed by Coach Shymansky to increase competitive spirit, be better setters and hitters and improve serves/ receives in each rotation. The gym is divided into three courts to concentrate on specific skills and produce more reps. You'll see drills for hitting, passing and setting, middle attacks, serve receive, short and deep serves in different zones, defending the outside hitter and more.
