with Anne Kordes, University of Louisville Head Coach;
2010 and 2011 USA Select National Team Lead Coach

Anne Kordes shows you how to organize and run an effective preseason practice to help you get a good start to your season. This isn't a clinic where she tells us how she thinks practice should go. Instead, you are thrust into the middle of Coach Kordes' preseason practices and shown what actually happens in their gym.

Disc 1:

    Coach Kordes talks us through her practice plan that includes weight lifting and video review. The session includes multiple ball control drills as the practices concentrate on individual passing and defense. The team progresses into 6-on-6 and 5-on-6 game play, ending with a scrimmage. Drill highlights include:

    • Ball Control Series - Drills feature Lanes Narrow, Lanes Wide, Run Thru Sequence and Side-to-Side Short. Mostly player initiated, these drill allow the whole team to work on ball control skills while allowing the coaches to travel around the gym monitoring the drill and giving feedback.
    • Digging Technique - A large part of this practice focuses on digging technique. Coaches break down the skill of digging for the players and player initiated drills are executed to focus on learning the techniques for digging hard driven balls, balls in front of the player and balls outside of the midline.
    • 6-on-6 Drills - The 6-on-6 portion is a basic wash format. However, it effectively shows how the coaches interact with the players to improve individual skill during actual play. To often, we as coaches leave individual instruction for `drill time' and do not focus on individual skill during game-like scrimmages. This section of the video shows how we can use all of practice to improve the individual skills of our athletes.

    Disc 2:

      In this session the team practice a variety of skills, including passing, serving and digging. The team goes through drills that are designed to focus on one or two skills at a time while always working through a team approach. A few warm-up drills keep the girls moving at a fast pace as they practice getting to the ball, keeping their posture low and passing to the target. Drill highlights include:

      • 4 v 4 Warm-up - A warm-up drill that trains the team to defend left-to-left attacks, right-to-right attacks and pipe-to-pipe attacks. It starts to build the foundation of team defense by forcing the defenders to communicate and defend in close proximity.
      • Dig, Set and Cover Drill - This drill focuses on covering starts with a live swing from the opposite side. The team digs the ball and then covers the resulting set. The live swing/dig gives this drill a more game-like feel and should make the covering skill more transferable to actual games.
      • Passing - Drills build from individual technique to game-like serve receive drills with scoring. As coaches, we all know the importance of passing to on court success.

      Disc 3:

        In the morning session of Day 3, the focus is on technique. Setters work on footwork, hand training, and set placement as middles work on blocking patterns. Coach Kordes and her staff leads the players through ball control/rhythm drills, digging techniques, passing reps, and serving speed drills. During the afternoon session, the focus is on competing. Kordes uses speedball as a fun, competitive warm-up drill. Team competition continues throughout the afternoon session with 10-in-a-row drill, 12 Point Middle Score More Game, and Finish the Set drills. Drill highlights include:

        • Individual Setter Training - Starting with perfect tosses, the drill progresses until the setters are setting off of live serve receive. This section is a great road map for you to design your own setter training.
        • Rhythm Ball Control Series - Ball control is not just getting the ball to the right location, but having it delivered on time so the next player can play it properly. This team ball control series (forearm and overhand passing) focuses on the rhythm or height of the pass.
        • 6 v 6 with Bonus Scoring - This drill gives extra points for consecutive kills by the middle hitter. Though specific to the middle hitter, this is a great example of how changing the scoring system can totally transform what the drill focuses on without the coach having to make it happen. By manipulation the scoring, the team automatically works on the area that the coach thinks the team needs to improve.

        This video gives you a road map to focus on this skill in your gym, while keeping it fun and interesting to the team.

        All Access videos are designed to allow viewers from all over the world to see how successful coaches run their practices in a "live" practice setting. All Access videos allow viewers to see the practices un-edited and in real-time. You will see how top coaches run their drills, interact with their team and staff, how they motivate their team, the cue words they use, the atmosphere of the practice and how practices are structured from day to day. Many coaches visit successful colleges and high schools to watch practice. But if you live out of state or out of the country, visiting another coach's gym can be costly. That's why we created the All Access Practice Series of videos -- to bring the practices to you!
