Advanced Defense session
The Six skills sessions series
The Six Skills Series is the skills needed to be a well-rounded volleyball player. The sessions are short and focus on a single skill. In school and club volleyball, the coaches often do not have time to teach basic volleyball skills. Where can an athlete ensure they have a solid foundation to develop these skills? These sessions are an answer to this problem
Don’t miss this session it will be fun and a good one for anyone who has played a season of club or school and wants to refine their defensive and service reception skills.When the ball does not come directly at an athlete, it may be impossible to play the ball from a regular underhand passing standing position. The athlete still focuses on the ball and takes a step with the near foot in the direction of the oncoming ball. The body is extremely low when playing the ball. To ensure that the athlete does not hurt himself/herself, the athlete will continue the momentum and either slide or roll out of the play. The goal is to get the ball up to the target and safely return to the ready position as quickly as possible.
This is a chance for athletes who are good at personal defence skills to take it to the next level and learn some team defence skills.
