Anne Kordes, University of Louisville Head Coach, breaks down attacking fundamentals by beginning with teaching proper “dynamic footwork.” Coach Kordes emphasizes the importance of efficient footwork mechanics in setting the athlete up in a position to create vertical leap from their momentum.
She takes athletes through a 3 step progression which teaches athletes how to use their entire body to generate both precision and power.
See how to properly prepare your jump followed by a turn in this progression exercise from Chris Lamb, Wichita State Head Volleyball Coach. Training with Coach Lamb’s tips and athlete demonstration will help you strengthen your attacking skills.
Points of emphasis for the players are getting out of jumping position quickly, swinging their arms to help them jump, and rotating at the top of the jump.
