Coaching points

  • Important for vollyers to stay alert, keep low and contact the ball in front.
  • For more advanced players vollyers must hit the ball deeper towards the baseline.
  • This will also help develop the baseliners ability to change the direction of the ball.In addition the baseliners have less time to react and therefore have to be extra alert and move well.
  • Average rating
