Running a slide attack is a very technical skill in the sport of volleyball. In this video, Bond Shymansky breaks down each component of the slide attack and teaches it from the ground up. Coach Shymansky gives in-depth explanations, demonstrations and drills that will take all the guess work out of coaching the slide attack.
Building a slide hitterStarting with the mechanics, Coach Shymansky breaks down the footwork, arm swing, rhythm and timing, and adjustments that can be made. He demonstrates drills to isolate each part of the skill. Most drills involve coach tossing, however, the more advanced drills use the hitter and a setter. These drills will give coaches everything they need to teach their players how to run a slide attack.
Transition footworkNow that the hitter has the mechanics of the slide attack down, the next segment focuses on transitioning off of the net to get into the correct position to run the slide attack. Coach Shymansky explains the proper positioning of the attacker and why other ways will not work.
Again, he begins with simple walk throughs with a player and then adds the setter to make the drill more game like. He varies the way he enters balls into the drill to create some unpredictability in the drill. This helps the hitter to learn how to adjust to the tempo of the pass and set
One foot take offsSlide hitting is not only for middle attacks or for behind the setter. This segment shows coaches how to train all hitters from all positions at the net to run a slide or one foot take-off type of attack. This kind of attack becomes very hard for the opponent to block and defend.
He demonstrates how to practice the slide with all of your attackers and how they can adjust their footwork from different locations at the net. Very simply put, once hitters learn the footwork and rhythm they can do it from anywhere.
If you were allowed to get only one video to learn how to teach the slide, this would be it. This is the complete package when it comes to teaching the slide attack from the ground up. Coaches will gain great knowledge in the footwork, leg work, arm preparation, arm swing and transition of the slide attack. A great video for coaches of all levels that want to increase the difficulty of their offense.
