Age/Skill Level: This is a drill for intermediate to advanced players. Requirements: Coach, 2+ players, balls, half court. Execution: Begin with a coach in either the OH or RS position at the net, in the diagonally opposite defensive position, and one more players waiting to come in behind. The coach hits a ball at the player, which that player digs to themselves and then sets back toward the coach.
The players will start in a line far 8 to 10 feet away from the box. The idea is that they are digging from the back of the court and aiming for a target area that the setter can work with. When the coach hits, the digger must dig the ball in a way that they can catch their own dig as close to the target as possible.
The setter is determined by which back-row player digs the hard-driven ball. Once the dug ball is set to the coach, the players cover and the coach tips to simulate a blocked ball. The back-row players cinch up to the net to dig that ball. Repeat the sequence.
