Freeball Dump Zones

  • When delivering a freeball we want to disrupt the opponents offence as much as possible. 
  • We can also use the freeball to take out an offensive attacker by pulling them close to the net or making them take the first contact. 
  • Dump zones are meant to target the setter or setter transition area and to pull an outside hitter off of their approach.
  • If there is time, the player passing the ball should look at the opponents side of the net to determine where to place the ball - D1, D2, D3, D4
  • Teammates not involved in the play should be:
    • Ready to defend the freeball
    • Looking at the opponents transition or positioning on the court
    • Communicating to the player passing the ball on where to put the ball - 1, 2, 3, 4
