This session is for High School Age participants.

With regard to spiking, the athlete must first be able to demonstrate the spiking motion when on the floor (with modified and full arm swing). The second phase is arm swing, which is started with both arms at the side of the body. Arms are taken straight back and then thrust forward and immediately up. The third phase includes athlete jumping and spiking. As the athlete begins to jump, her spiking arm is raised with elbow shoulder high. At the top of the jump, the elbow leads as the arm is extended and wrist snaps so that the heel of the athletes hand contacts the ball and follows through. The athlete must land softly and be in control of the landing. This is a high jump, not a long jump. The fourth phase the athlete uses only the step-close (right-left for right-handers and left-right for left-handers) or step 2 and 3 of the modified spiking approach. The fifth phase includes athlete using a full approach, take-off then completing the spiking motion and landing. Right-hander (start right foot in front) should take left-right-left or one step and step-close approach. Left-hander (start the left foot in front) should take right left-right or one step and step-close. The basic session will focus on the fundamentals of spiking
