2015 ACC Coach of the Year - her third coach of the Year honor at Louisville, also earning the award as the Big East (2012) and American Athletic Conference (2013) Coach of the Year; 2010 and 2011 USA Select National Team Lead Coach; past President of the American Volleyball Coaches Association

Learn from the University of Louisville's Head Coach, Anne Kordes, how to train your young volleyball players to master one of the most crucial skills in volleyball - setting. Just as a football team cannot be their best without a great quarterback, neither can any volleyball team be on top without a skilled setter!

In this video Coach Kordes explains the keys to teaching essential setter skills:

  • Ready position and Setting Posture - A good ready position posture enables setters to be loaded and use their legs to help them make good sets (especially when upper body strength is lacking as in younger players).
  • Footwork Sequences to Any Ball - Training various footwork options gives your setters the tools they need to get to any pass and put up a good set to the target.
  • Soft Hands for Clean Contact - Setters must use a clean contact to most effectively control the set.
  • Location on the Net - Based on the level of your team and setter, you may need to position your setter more centrally, or be able to position her more towards the right side. It is important that setters can release to the net in such a way as to be able to see the court and make a quality set to any target.

Coach Kordes demonstrates a number of drills you can bring into your gym to focus on each of these important aspects of setting. As younger players execute drills, Kordes teaches you how to add a level of competition to the drills in your practice plan.

If you coach young and/or inexperienced athletes, or even value "back to basics" opportunities with more advanced players, do not miss out on this great title. Add Setting Fundamentals for Volleyball to your training library, and teach your setters to make a quality set out of any pass their team puts up!

Volleyball players love to attack. Wouldn't it be great to have them do it correctly right from the start? Learn how to train beginning attackers with confidence.

Anne Kordes breaks down the attack into its various steps and then teaches it in a part-whole methodology. Coach Kordes shows the key points for progressing through the approach, hip, arm, wrist, jump, and finally, the location on the court.

Learn how to train athletes to gain momentum in the approach using explosive left - right - left footwork to get to the ball as well as how to successfully:

  • load with arms back on the final right - left steps
  • jump explosively, opening hips and shoulders to setter
  • lift lead arm and draw attack elbow back
  • snap close with both elbow and hip

After showing you how to train players in dynamic approach footwork, Coach Kordes creates an isolated environment in which players can learn proper arm swing, beginning from the loaded position and focusing on:

  • opening hips and shoulders
  • snapping closed with elbow and hip
  • snapping the wrist over the top of the ball to create topspin
  • following through on arm swing

As players become more consistent with the dynamic approach, their attacks will greatly improve. Ad
