National Sitting Volleyball Coach Bill Hamiter, along with assistant coach Cara Lang, bring you an "outside the box" idea for training your players using techniques from the Paralympics sitting volleyball team.
Learn how you can improve your players serve toss, arm swing, arm speed, defensive floor moves, hand passing, blocking hands, setting technique and other skills by sitting on the floor.
Every aspect of the game is covered and there are benefits to standing players at every turn. Learn how to teach your team to master several key facets of sitting volleyball:
- Move QUICKLY to the ball at sitting-game speed
- Read hitters while stationary blocking
- Use overhead passing for serve receive
- Close the block
- Find a way around the block
- Use the block
The skill progressions range from a simple set of drills all the way up to the 6v6 game. Net heights and court dimensions are also discussed. The video explains the drills in detail and uses current players from the US Paralympic gold medal winning team to demonstrate.
By taking away their feet, players will get more effective reps as they attempt to correct the problems that are associated with their upper body. Once your players effectively master each of these crucial skills for sitting volleyball, they will begin to play standing volleyball more confidently with greater court vision, control, and efficiency!
If you are looking for a creative way to help your players improve, this training method will completely change your players' understanding of volleyball mechanics.
