    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.

    YVD-04346B: with Kevin Hambly, 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.

    2011 NCAA Runners-up; 2011 Volleyball Magazine Coach of the Year; President of the AVCA Board of Directors

    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!

    YVD-04346E: with Kevin Hambly, University of Illinois Head Coach;
    2011 NCAA Runners-up; 2011 Volleyball Magazine Coach of the Year; President of the AVCA Board of Directors

    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!

    with John Cook,
    University of Nebraska Head Volleyball Coach;
    2x AVCA National Coach of the Year (2005, 2000); 2x National Championship Coach (2006, 2000); 2005 National Runner-up; USA Volleyball All-Time Great Coach Award (2008); 3x Big 12 Coach of the Year

    Glean ideas for your program from one of the best programs in the country!

    Get the best seat in the gym as John Cook gives you an "All Access" look at five of his early-season volleyball practice sessions, putting you directly in the heat of preparation for the fall campaign. You'll see how Nebraska structures the flow and movement of a practice, which he demands execution at every phase, along with accountability even in the simplest drills.

    In over 10 hours of practice instruction you'll see pre-practice conditioning circuits, individual drill progressions that lead up to six-on-six competition, end of practice stretching routines and closed door team meeting sessions. Other features of this 5-disc package include:

    • A lighter weight practice day where the coaching staff is getting in a maximum amount of repetitions for each player in a game-like situation. Coach Cook's areas of focus are from the organized stretching at the beginning of practice, to a comprehensive training session, then shifting to a cool down process, then a post practice view of a team discussion on the values that are at the heart of the program.
    • A "morning practice" format that features 'no jump' training to save the legs of the athletes. Coach Cook starts with a partner ball control series that focuses on shoulder rotation during the attack, platform angle management and complex series. The practice then progresses to a 2 v 2 series of competitive games, and ends with full court game-like drills. Over all the major emphasis is on the first contact: defense & serve receive.
    • A "Recovery Day." This single practice, after two-a-days the previous two days, shows the Nebraska squad working on Serving, Passing, Blocking and Digging with a focus on footwork. At the end of practice, Coach Cook breaks into individual drills, giving you an excellent look at the "Shadow Drill" as the Nebraska girls are taught proper footwork and transitioning, and their aggressive "Ball Group" drills that teaches the team defensive coverage and digging. Practice closes with a "behind closed doors" look at a team meeting.

    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)

    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.

    with Dave Shondell, Purdue University Head Coach;
    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.

    You'll learn ball control drills for introducing the concept of tempo into serving and passing. Coach Sanders also shares competitive games that focus on assessing first touches and tempo during live play.

    Discover drills for teaching players to develop pass tempo. These drills will help players learn to identify and name each tempo using a simple numbering system and basic ball handling warm up drills.

    Coach Sanders introduces a number of drills and techniques to teach players how to read and understand pass tempo. Your players will learn and develop an understanding of tempo while they're gaining touches on the ball.

    Serving and passing drills continue the education for the players learning to define tempo in a game-like situation. Tempo in serving is important. Low serves over the net or high serves to the deep part of the court over a passer trying to use their hands can get aces for your team. Scoring systems are explained and used to keep the drills competitive and fun.

    Finally the Serve/Pass Grading competition is a 6 v 6 drill where scoring is based on the pass grade. It allows players to start to read earlier on what the opponent might do next with that pass and increase their volleyball IQ, and gets all of the passers on the same page in communicating how long they have to move to the ball.

    If you are looking for a way to take your players to the next level by speeding up (or slowing down) your play but don't have any idea how to communicate that to your team, look here to Coach Sanders' way of defining tempo and basic drills to teach the language of tempo to your players.

  • 06/26/15--22:00: Focusing on the Fundamentals
  • with Maggie Griffin,
    Club founder and Director of VCNebraska,
    VCNebraska Master Coach for the College Prep program,
    member of the 2006 NCAA National Championship Nebraska Women's Volleyball team, played for Sports Performance Volleyball Club winning two Junior Olympic titles, was a 4-time AAU All-American and 2-time JO MVP

    Maggie Griffin has been trained by some of the most successful coaches in the world. Now she's implemented her training and experience into a system for developing young volleyball players. This system includes movement training, coordination drills, conditioning and training the basic skills of volleyball using a language that athletes can understand.

    Active Warm-Ups
    A lot of coaches only know how to do a basic set of dynamics, but these warm-ups also help with agility, speed and strength. Coach Griffin's warm-up exercises are used to increase coordination, core strength, speed, agility and endurance. The goal of the warm-up is to produce a more functional athlete who is prepared to train at a high level.

    Shuffle Series
    Shuffling is an extremely important concept when preparing an athlete to pass. Using a variety of shuffle drills, Coach Griffin demonstrates how on-court movement is trained in her gym. The use of key words and `naming' the posture is critical to ensuring that everyone is on the same page and remembers how each skill and drill are performed.

    Fundamentals of Setting, Passing, Serving and Attacking
    The final third of the video focuses on introducing the fundamental skills of volleyball to the novice player. Each skill is broken down using key words and numbered steps, so everyone has a common language. Starting with the stationary execution of the skills, movement is then introduced as the basic concepts are mastered.

    This video showcases tried and true methods for training athletes in the fundamental, technical skills they need to excel and succeed in an environment of discipline, success and enjoyment. This is a valuable resource for high school teams with active feeder programs or any club that includes young players.

    with Fred Chao,
    George Mason University Head Men's Volleyball Coach;
    3x EIVA Coach of the Year, USA Junior National Team Assistant Coach

    The back row attack has become an instrumental part of volleyball. As blockers have gotten bigger and faster and the overall speed of the game has quickened, the need to maximize attacking options has increased exponentially.

    Coach Fred Chao explores the back row attack's past, present and future. After talking about its history of being mostly an outlet set for out of system attacks, Chao discusses and demonstrates new ways that the back row attack is being used to diversify offenses and defeat opponents' blocking systems.

    Using back row attackers as a part of a coordinated offense will result in more favorable blocking match-ups, more in-system hitting options, and more offensive firepower.

    Slide and 10 Combination
    After demonstrating how the back row attack has been used primarily as an outlet in the past, Coach Chao presents how to use attacks from behind the 3-meter line as a part of your in-system offense. With the setter in the front row, Chao has the demonstrators run a slide / 10 combination that causes the opponent's blocking system to leave at least one hitter with a one-on-one attack.

    Mobile MH and Back Row Stacks
    Current higher level offensive strategy includes running a double quick with the back row attacker following the middle hitters audible and attacking with a quick tempo attack directly behind the middle hitter. This wave of attackers draws the opponent's middle blocker. In addition to being difficult to defend both quick attacks of the stack, it can free up both pin hitters for 1-on-1 attacks.

    `On Balls' Back Row Attacks
    The final segment of the video is about the future of the back row attack. At the international level, the use of `on balls' have started to become lethal weapons. It allows the setter to have a back row option right in front of them if the pass is on or near the 3-meter line. These sets, which are floating first tempo back row attacks hit off wherever the setter receives the ball, force the opposing middle to be in the air to block the attack while all three front row attackers are still viable options.

    The back row attack can be very effective if it fits within an offensive system based on athlete capabilities, timing, and positioning. Understanding how to integrate these components can lead to a dynamic, multi-point offense in both serve-receive and transition situations.

    Coach Chao's thought provoking video will make you rethink how you are using your back row players in your offensive attack.

    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!

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.

    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.

    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 Joe Sagula, University of North Carolina Head Coach;
    2014 ACC Coach of the Year, 4x ACC Coach of the Year; 6x ACC Champions;

    Joe Sagula unveils an entire series of training drills especially for liberos and defensive specialists. He presents over 20 unconventional, fast-paced and fun individual and game-action training drills that will keep your defensive players from getting stale.

    Coach Initiated Drills
    Coach Sagula begins with basic individual drills that focus on the techniques and mechanics associated with the libero position. Your players will get a significant number of repetitions while working on their defensive posture, vision, instincts, reaction, movement and ball control. Overall, 13 drills are introduced in this section alone. Each one focuses on small aspects of what a libero needs, creating a total package. All of these drills are initiated by the coach who tosses or hits balls at the libero, giving quality feedback along the way. This creates a slower-paced atmosphere that allows defensive players to focus on their posture and the techniques of digging.

    Player Initiated Drills
    Running player initiated drills makes the drills more game-like and also helps other position players by allowing them to gain serving, setting or hitting reps. These drills will help your players build their communication skills, which in turn helps them improve their relationships during on-court play. These drills are a little more intense and game-like, requiring multiple skills to be used by multiple players.

    Many of the drills work the relationship between the libero and back row setter as they defend out of the back row together. Your players will improve their space relationships and become more comfortable working with each other in serve receive. This is valuable for teams that run a 5-1 offense or 6-2 when the front row setter gets subbed out for an attacker.

    Team Drills
    Coach Sagula brings all the skills from previous drills together in a game-like situation through a series of 6-on-6 drills. Players compete for points while focusing on certain parts of a libero's game. The "Bounce Plus One" drill is a wash drill that works a team's out-of-system and in-system play. Different players are forced to set a second ball and run the offense. At the same time hitters get great opportunities to work on their transition.

    Order now and give your defensive specialists and liberos the quality reps and drill variety they need to stay engaged in practice and the tools they need to succeed on game day.

    Develop a faster offense with the ability to adjust to your opponent and free up your outside hitters

    Jim Moore goes over concepts he thinks every offense should have and then discusses the goals he has for his offense. Coach Moore really takes you into the offensive system that has made Oregon a top program national. The system requires a lot of work and you have to give your players a lot of responsibility, but the results will be an unpredictable offense that is a nightmare to stop.

    Coach Moore uses seven concepts to run multiple offensive sets from serve receive patterns. He explains each concept to you, then shows you drills so your team can work on each concept. The seven concepts are:

    • Get your setter to penetrate to the net easily and quickly.
    • Get players to attack in various zones all along the net. During this concept, Coach Moore demonstrates several blocking schemes and how to attack each one by running offense into various zones.
    • Place your best hitters against the opponent's weakest blockers.
    • How to isolate hitters.
    • Create misdirection in your offense so attackers can get one on one situations.
    • Have players call out verbal audible so players can change the play while the play is occurring.
    Each of these concepts are discussed and principles are presented. Watch as he runs his team through drills so you can see how he teaches the concepts to his team. Coach Moore takes you from the basic simple offensive set and moves to the complex part of the system. You will want to view this video to gather new ideas on how to set up your offense and have a more effective sideout offense against your opponents.

    Practice video is shown so the viewer can see how to instill these concepts and achieve these goals with their own team. Game segments follow practice video to show how the concepts carry over to the match.

    This is a fast-paced unpredictable offense that is difficult to defend. It allows your players freedom to attack along the net from various places to set-up more scoring opportunities for your team.

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.

    former UCLA Assistant Coach (2006 National Champions);
    former Coach of the Synergy Volleyball Club, 4x U.S. Junior Olympic Gold Medalists

    Are your players struggling with serve receive passing? Learning how to track the ball with their eyes will help them improve their passing!

    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.
