Find the offense that best fits the skills of your team.

To be most successful, a good coach should match their offensive system to their team rather than making every team fit the mold of a single offensive system. University of Louisville Coach Anne Kordes, along with "the best 7th & 8th graders in Louisville," dive into team offenses, thoroughly explaining the pros and cons of the three most common volleyball offenses: 4-2, 6-2, and 5-1.

Before getting into the offenses, teams must have a solid understanding of "overlapping" to avoid giving up unearned, out of rotation points to the opponent. In her fast-paced, but easy to understand style, Coach Kordes explains the six zones, rotations and where the players need to line-up according to each rotation. She does a great job of showing who can and cannot overlap in each rotation, allowing coaches to decide how they want their teams to serve-receive and who they want to pass.

When determining which offensive system to use, knowing your setter(s) is crucial and knowing how to set your lineup around your setter is just as essential to success. Coach Kordes will teach you when to use and how to teach various offensive systems:

  • 4-2 - A front row setter option, ideal for beginners.
  • 6-2 - A back row setter option, good for multiple setters and setters who hit well.
  • 5-1 - A single setter option, ideal for a single strong, consistent, leader.
Kordes has players walk through each rotation in each system demonstrating how to line up for serve receive and transition to attack.

Each offense is explained in detail, with advice on which types of setters will do well with each offense. She takes players through different rotations and serve-receive formations providing an in-depth picture of the systems' workings.

Want to keep the defense guessing? Coach Kordes breaks down the art of calling sets, describing each hitting zone at the net and the three most common set heights. With Kordes' insights, you can teach your athletes to identify the location and tempo of any set. She also gives advice on how to best set your line up and utilize subs so rotations are always balanced to maximize your team's talent. Her thorough explanations make it simple for any coach to make smart, aggressive decisions on line up.

Whether you're a new coach needing a thorough explanation of rotation zones, lineup strategy, signaling sets, and running specific offensive systems or an experienced coach wanting a refresher, this video has something for everyone! Learn how to choose the best offensive system for your team and put your team in the best possible position for success his season!

Every coach has struggled with which defense to use at some point in their careers. Which defense covers tips the best? What if my setter is not very fast? Whose ball is it anyway?

In this video, 2010 and 2011 USA Select National Team Lead Coach Anne Kordes answers these questions while teaching you the pros and cons of three most common defensive systems. You will see how you can customize each system to the needs of your team - or even the needs of an individual match - so you can have your best passers and hitters in each rotation.

When deciding which defensive system to employ, knowing your team is just as essential as knowing your opponent. Coach Kordes takes local 7th and 8th graders through a "rotation-by-rotation" explanation of the strengths of each system, when to use it, and how to teach it.

  • Setter Up - This defense emphasizes tip coverage and easy transition for the setter.
  • Perimeter - Allows your team to focus on defense against deep hitting teams.
  • Rotation - If your team puts up a strong block, this system is great to use against teams who hit deep line and angle but also tip.
Kordes takes time to discuss mini alterations - useful when using perimeter and rotation defenses - that will help your team pick up tips in a perimeter system and cross shot in a rotation system. She also makes a point to demonstrate how to put your setter in position to easily transition to the net.

Kordes gives coaches of all levels the keys to teaching each defense, the keys to transition to offense, and then back again. With four simple cue words, training each defense is made simple:

  • Base - Know where to place each player on the court before the play develops.
  • Read - Athletes adjust their position based on the developing play.
  • Stage - Players defend the ball and transition to offense.
  • Cover - Team defends against the block.
Using these same cues for each defense, Kordes thoroughly explains where players should be and why helping to answer that age old question, "Was that my ball?" Kordes covers a variety of situations, including sharing her own "Card Red" adjustment, preparing coaches for whatever comes their way. Drill work is demonstrated for each defense, first without a ball (to focus on proper positioning) and later adding a ball to make implementation quick and easy.

No matter the level of your team, knowing how they best move on the court is important to determining which defensive system will be most successful for them. Use this video to help effectively match an appropriate defensive system with your team's ability and start picking up those killer tips and tough digs.
