Counter Attack Mechanic

  • Prep is key-  Good ready position out in front – watching for the attackable ball coming at you
  • Do not take a big back swing- meet the ball out in front
  • Accelerate through the ball
  • Finish out in front ready for the next shot to come at you

Speed Up & Counter Attack Drill

  • Players stand straight on to each other at the NVZ
  • Engage in dinking rally and take turns who will speed up the ball
  • Player receiving the speed up must counter attack and stay in the hand battle

Footwork and Body Prep For Volleys

  • Slide sideways and turn slightly to accommodate hitting the ball more to the side of you but still in front
  • A ball  to the side can be attacked more aggressively than a ball right at your shoulder

Slide & Volley Drill

  • Players stand at NVZ straight on
  • 1  Player hits volleys at partner’s chest
  • Partner must side slide to create space to hit volley more out to the side
  • Alternate forehand and backhand slide
