This video features the spray pass setting drill and coaching with Anjinho Bacil. A short low pass is a common error when passing the ball infront of your inside leg at the height Anjinho recommends however practicing this drill results in an easy fix where the setter can improve the play and get the hitter back in system.
“One of the biggest differences between old school and current beach volleyball is the height and location of the pass on server receive. Many old school players successfully passed a low ball in front of their inside leg. This made it easier for a setter to hand set under the old tougher hand setting rules or bump set a ball up and down. By keeping the pass and set infont of the hitter even if the set was low the player would have good court vision and be able to make a good attack.” – Andor Gyulai
This drill accomplishes several things:
1) Teaches players to get in a low athletic position so they are ready to move fast to set any ball.
2) It reps out low sets and offers new alternatives that can be used on windy days or to changes the paces of the offense for whatever reason.
3) It practices the most common error of a low pass and gets the attackers back in system.
