  • Setup

    Two players (C) and (D) start at the net as outside blockers in positions 2 and 4 respectively. Players (A) and (B) start just back from the middle of the net.
  • Step 1

    Player (A) steps up to the net, stops, and performs a small block
    Players should NOT perform a 'run-up' to the net - stop and then block
  • Step 2

    Player (A) transitions to the right along the net, and stops next to player (C) in position 2
    (A) should not drop their hands below the net when transitioning
    Emphasise fast movement from the middle to the outside
    (A) should avoid 'drifting' into (C) when they reach the outside
  • Step 3

    Both player (A) and (C) perform a double block
    Both players should aim to time their blocks together
    If timing is proving difficult, have player (C) count the timing for the jump
  • Step 4

    Player (B) returns to the back of the line. Player (A) replaces (C) as the new outside blocker
  • Step 5

    Player (B) repeats the same steps as player (A), but transitioning left to block with player (D) instead
    This step can occur immediately after player (A) has finished their block in the middle
    Repeat as desired
