Andor Teaching Pre Practice Setters Skill Building Drill Focusing on Hands and Footwork – Day 2 – Uni High
The setter is the most important player on the court touching the ball almost twice as much as any other player on the court. This volleyball setter drill helps the setter during a time in practice when not much is going on get better with their hand and footwork technique for setting.
This setting drill is final drill in the progression of setting drills and the focus is on decision making and dumping the ball. The players approach from area 4 and then based upon the pass have to decide are they dumping or are they setting. Chris often changes the drills in the series based upon what he see as the setters needs for that week but he always trys to get at least 1 decision making drill into the setter warm up drills.
The next progression in the warm up / early practice setting drills with Chris Austin is setter coming from area 4 and setting 2 balls: 1 – In system, 1 – Out system. The setters are encouraged to jump set and this drill simulates more what happens in a long rally when a player is blocked.
The next progression of the warm up skill building setting drills is the two setters approaching from rotations 1, 3 and 4 in serve receive type format. Each setter sets one ball and then repeats. 4 Balls each for a “In System”, “Medium”, “Out of System” pass. Focus is getting their feet set then making the same moves and footwork to the ball.
In this video Chris Austin starts by explaining how they run setting drills and clinics. Then the video follows with a progression of the setting drills with a multi-ball stationary drill. The multi-ball stationary drill basically allows the setter to get a feel of just setting, pulling together what they did in drill 1 – where the focus was just hands, and drill 2 – where the focus was just feet. The drill consist of coach tossing 8 balls to the players and the setter setting front or back with an “In system” toss.
