with Anne Kordes,
former University of Louisville Head Coach; 2015 ACC Champions;
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

Ever wonder how some setters are able to confuse middle blockers on a consistent basis or why some setters are more difficult to read than others?

In this video, University of Louisville Coach Anne Kordes demonstrates how she teaches her setters to freeze the middle blocker, so her hitters can hit against an unorganized block.

Whether your goal is to give your hitters a 1-on-1 block or get them an ideal set location or both, Kordes shares great teaching techniques and demonstrates drills for training the key elements to accomplishing these goals.

Coach Kordes shows you a simple drill progression you can use in every step of the development process. This drill begins by teaching basic techniques that are necessary for a setter to become more deceptive and progresses into a game of setter vs. middle blocker that will give instant feedback on just how difficult your setter is to read.

This video is ideal for a coach who is ready to take their setters to the next level or for a setter who is competent enough fundamentally that they are ready to learn how to be more deceptive.

By learning how to be more deceptive, a setter can give her team an offensive edge and provide new scoring opportunities!
