Mike presents a video instructional series on spiking from the left side or outside hitter position. In this advanced series are tips of a proper approach to selecting shots to beat the blockers. This 6 video series is a must for all outside hitters and coaches!
Points covered in the videos include:
Video 1 – On the approach hitters need to keep their weight behind the ball. This maximizes momentum for more power and better selection of hits.
Video 2 – In transition always open up to the ball. This keeps the ball in front of the player so they can make a better approach and see where the block is.
Video 3 – Shots are very important to have. Players can mix up where the ball goes by hitting sharp cross, high corner or down the line.
Video 4 – On a bad set hitters can use the tip or dink shot. These are similar to a normal spike with a few changes.
Video 5 – Tooling the block is very good for improving hitting percentages. Hitting high off the blockers hands is one example, along with several more.
Video 6 – Watch the middle blocker. Seeing where the middle blocker is will dictate a players shot selection.
