Volleyball drill: blocking in game situation
Blocking in game situation
- This exercise is about the movement of the middle block and cooperation with the outside blocker.
- The ball is introduced through service or throw in (by the trainer or team-mate).
- Service is towards the passer.
- Passer brings the ball to the distributor.
- The distributor sets up the attack.
- After 10 attacks the game is continued.
- Players prefer to play on their own position.
- Important for the exercise:
- The playmaker communicates with his attackers about the desired attacking position and speed (especially the alternation between rise and short of the middle attacker).
- Mid block jumps with a rising attack (not full).
- If the ball goes outside, he lands on his left foot and moves outside to set up a two-man block (connecting).
- If the ball is played over middle, the outside blocker steps out to make a pass if the ball falls short or is hit.
