Setting Fundamentals for VolleyballSetting Fundamentals for Volleyball
with Anne Kordes, University of Louisville Head Coach;
2010 and 2011 USA Select National Team Lead Coach

Learn from the University of Louisville's Head Coach, Anne Kordes, how to train your young volleyball players to master one of the most crucial skills in volleyball - setting. Just as a football team cannot be their best without a great quarterback, neither can any volleyball team be on top without a skilled setter!

In this video Coach Kordes explains the keys to teaching essential setter skills:

  • Ready position and Setting Posture - A good ready position posture enables setters to be loaded and use their legs to help them make good sets (especially when upper body strength is lacking as in younger players).
  • Footwork Sequences to Any Ball - Training various footwork options gives your setters the tools they need to get to any pass and put up a good set to the target.
  • Soft Hands for Clean Contact - Setters must use a clean contact to most effectively control the set.
  • Location on the Net - Based on the level of your team and setter, you may need to position your setter more centrally, or be able to position her more towards the right side. It is important that setters can release to the net in such a way as to be able to see the court and make a quality set to any target.

Coach Kordes demonstrates a number of drills you can bring into your gym to focus on each of these important aspects of setting. As younger players execute drills, Kordes teaches you how to add a level of competition to the drills in your practice plan.

If you coach young and/or inexperienced athletes, or even value "back to basics" opportunities with more advanced players, do not miss out on this great title. Add Setting Fundamentals for Volleyball to your training library, and teach your setters to make a quality set out of any pass their team puts up!

Blocking Fundamentals for VolleyballBlocking Fundamentals for Volleyball
with Anne Kordes, University of Louisville Head Coach;
2010 and 2011 USA Select National Team Lead Coach

Novice blockers tend to think that their job is to get a stuff block that puts the ball down for the point. However, teams can benefit from accomplishing other important blocking goals, even when it may not look as glamorous to the crowd. Louisville Head Coach Anne Kordes takes the time to explain that blockers serve multiple purposes, including:

  • forcing the attacker to adjust with an off-speed shot or tip
  • funneling the attack toward your team's best defender
  • getting a touch to make the ball more playable

To help put players in the best position to achieve these goals and make the coveted stuff block, Coach Kordes offers a different take on the common "ball-setter-ball-hitter" sequence. In this DVD, players learn Coach Kordes' 5 R's of blocking:

  • Ready - both in a loaded position and at a good physical distance from the net
  • Recognize - what is about to develop in the opponent's court based on the pass
  • Read - the trajectory of the set (is it going to bring the hitter in or push her out?)
  • Respond - to the hitter's body (is she going to swing line or cross?)
  • Remember - tendencies hitters may have (does she like to hit cross?)

This pattern teaches blockers how align the block with the hitter by reading the opponents attack.

Coach Kordes discusses how to train blockers in the use of:

  • Proper footwork - Kordes teaches the 3-step versus the shuffle-step pattern. These footwork patterns will help players to move quickly into position in a loaded manner, so they can be up in time to effectively block the attack.
  • Big, strong hands - A strong shoulder and core enables blockers to press over and draw out the block as long as possible for most effectiveness.

To drive these techniques home before putting it all together, Coach Kordees has players demonstrate different drills and progressions including the Push-Off Step Drill, Mirror Drill and Jump and Grab Drill.

While geared at beginners, the fundamentals shared in this DVD are good review for all players. By using these techniques, your players will develop strong blocking fundamentals as well as confidence at the net. Soon enough, your team will no longer consistent of beginner volleyball players but rather formidable blockers that no opponent can best!
