In this youth drill Glen Ridge (NJ) High School Assistant Coach, Paul Schwern, teaches players to scoop through ground balls with their heads up in order to survey the field.  In a game, this will help your players avoid the opponent and dodge any hits. Players will be able to look and find their teammates much easier when using this drill.

Keep Your Opponent on Their Toes with Off Speed Shots!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, September 6, 2013

Former AVCA National Coach of the Year, Judy Green, provides you with a 6 vs 6 drill called Biggie Smalls. This drill is designed to teach players to score using off speed shots and not simply hitting as hard as possible all the time. Changing the tempo of shots and learning to score is critical to success.

Key Points:
One side plays “big” the other plays “small”
Big is always swinging at the ball and being aggressive
Small can only tip, roll, throw, anything but hit
Teams play against each other to 7 points
