  If you put pressure on the opponent with your service and attack, the balls easily get over the net. It is a must to process these balls properly and (quickly) set up another attack. Precision is of the highest importance. The responsibilities have to be clear and taken by the players. It has to be clear for whom the easy ball is and who passes it. The place to which the ball is passed must also be clear.
The speed of the rally pass is also of importance. Particularly when the playmaker is forward, you can pass the ball quicker to the net. Closer to the net, you pass the ball a bit higher, so everybody has time to prepare for the attack.
The exercise:
Coach throws ball in to the six. They build up an attack
The six have to score from the rally pass. The four have to prevent this by blocking the ball and defend.
When the 6 have 5 points, change.
score keeping:
  • Each score is a point to the six
  • Every ball defended or blocked by the four is one point deducted
  • Every wrong rally pass 2 points deduction
Emphasis:
  • Taking responsibility
  • Get under the ball and play precisely
  • Give pass, then move for the attack
  • Recognizing and seizing opportunities.
