  • Setup

    Four players start with a single ball.
  • Step 1

    Start with one player setting the ball up for another player (A) to hit. The remaining three players must 'fan' around the hitter (A), ready to defend.
    The hitter should call 'DOWN' before hitting
    Hits should be controlled. Emphasise that the aim of the drill is to keep the drill going, not to 'win'.
  • Step 2

    Player (A) hits the ball, and the ball is passed by a player (B). The player who receives the pass becomes the next setter (D).
    When defending the hit, players should start low, on the balls of their feet, with feet shoulder-width apart
  • Step 3

    The setter (D) must call the name of the player they are setting, who then becomes the next hitter (B).
    The call should occur before the set is made
    Sets should be high enough to allow time for the players to 'fan' into defensive position
  • Step 4

    The new hitter (B) calls 'DOWN' and hits the ball at the remaining three players.
    Hits should be controlled - the aim is to keep the drill going.
    Players can also tip the ball occasionally instead of hitting
