Blocking with two-sided attack at net

Left and right to 1 side of the net a line of attackers, playmaker on fixed position (right forward), passer left back. Three blockers on the other side of the net (right forward, middle, and left forward).

Ball is thrown from the other side to   passer, passes to SV, sets up alternately to the attackers; mhidden blocker can only leave when set up has been played.

Points of attention:

  • position of the hands (turned to position 6); place arms over the net (lock ball)
  • jump after the attacker jumps
  • middle player properly connects; outside blocker puts up block from outside to inside (never the other way around)
