The July Coaching Tip of the Month Winner

Posted by Volley CART on

Tip by Mike Brandon, Gretna HS in Gretna, NE.

We do a drill called "Chaos" that encourages winning points in a row / stopping an opponent's run. It is a 6 on 6 drill that starts with a free ball initiated by Team B to Team A. Having the players initiate the free ball encourages them to learn how to send difficult free balls. If Team A wins the free ball rally, a down ball is initiated by Team B, again with the intent that the players will learn to "better the ball" while giving the opponent a difficult ball to play. Should Team A win the down ball, they are given a "Chaos ball" which is initiated by the coach. This can take many forms, a ball in the net, off a wall, high into the rafters, or a bounced ball that indicates the team only has 2 contacts remaining. If at any time Team A's streak is broken, the sequence is restarted with Team B receiving the free ball. We typically count every "Chaos" win as a big point and go to 3 big points.
