All Cover Drill
To simulate block recovery and coverage, we run the following drill:
We will set up normal offense on 1 side of the floor. I will place 3 girls directly in front of each hitter, with a ball in their hand, on the opposite side of the net. I will have a cart in the middle, with 2 extra girls to supply the 3 on the front. I will also add 1 girl with a ball in a short back position.
Players that get hit in the face:
It never fails someone is going to get hit in the face with a ball during practice. There is nothing like getting hit in the face, whether by a ball or person or something else, that will automatically change your attitude (to being bummed) instantly. The face is different than being hit anywhere else on your body.
