  • Setup

    A coach (CO) or player stands middle court with a trolley of volleyballs. On the other side of the court, 3 defenders (A), (B) & (C) wait in Zone 6, a setter (D) waits in Zone 4, with a middle spiker (E) waiting in Zone 3.
  • Step 1

    Coach (CO) tosses or spikes a ball towards the defence (A), (B) and (C).
    Make the players work to move for the ball.
  • Step 2

    One of players (A), (B) or (C) passes the ball to the setter (D).
    The setter makes a step inside the court before setting.
  • Step 3

    The setter (D) sets the ball up for the middle spiker (E) to run and jump to in Zone 3.
  • Step 4

    (E) makes a 2-step jump and spikes the ball firmly over the net to 'win' a point.
    The spiker MUST be in Zone 3 - the middle spiker zone.
  • Step 5

    (E) retrieves the ball and joins the queue of middle spikers. Rotate defenders and setters later in the drill if you wish.
