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 however 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.
This video features the players doing warm up hitting lines with Anjinho Bacil during the beach practice. The players are getting more physically ready for the tougher more intensive drills that include more attacking. What I like about this video is it brings up the important point that the passer / hitter should always pass the ball infront of the setter in beach. On a tough serve / free ball / even warm ups the passer needs to work to get the ball in front of the setter to set up the offense.
