Potential Areas Covered Each Session:

Setting & Overhead Passing -   
 The fundamentals of the setting position including footwork to the ball, hand position, and release on the ball will be taught and reinforced for the intermediately level player.  We will transition these skills to Overhead Passing and the proper mechanics for all players to pass the ball quickly and accurately on the first contact regardless of position.  

Passing:  Players at all levels will  work on the basic techniques and footwork associated with passing.  We will transition to reading the server, passing platform and movement to the ball with proper platform.   We will teach intermediate and advanced players to tempo their pass to allow for a quick offense. 

Overhand Serving - designed for players that want to work on their serving technique.  Intermediate to advance players will work on float, jump float, serving aggressively, serving zones, and serving to score points.  We will focus on efficiency of movement, proper timing, and placement of the ball to ensure a consistent serve.     

Hitting & Blocking:   Newer players will focus on skill acquisition and experienced players will focus on reinforcement.  Rhythm and timing in conjunction with footwork is a major emphasis.   During the hitting portion arm action, correct swing technique,  approach and jump mechanics will be addressed as athletes learn to “dial in” optimum hitting mechanics.    Players will be grouped according to age and skill level.
Serving:  Newer players will focus on learning overhand serving techniques, including proper toss, arm swing, footwork and gaining confidence.  Experienced players will focus will be on the mechanics of different serves (float, top spin, jump and jump float).  Serve placement will be a sub focus.   Once mechanics of the serve is established, players will be asked to serve with a purpose, picking a location on the court to serve. 

Setting & Hitting: The fundamentals of the setting position including footwork to the ball, hand position, and release on the ball will be taught.  During the hitting section players will focus on hitting approach/footwork, correct swinging technique and jump mechanics.   At the end of this clinic we will put the skills together so athletes can experience setting a ball to their team mate, and hitters will begin to learn timing and experience hitting from a player set ball rather than coach toss.   For new players all athletes will rotate through the setter position.

Tactical Serving 
- designed to increase the tactical understanding of the serve. The effectiveness of all serving styles [Jump, Jump Float, Standing Float, etc.] will be addressed.  For players who have not yet developed their jump serve coaches will teach the basics of jump serving.   Coaches work with higher level participants to 1) develop different styles of jump serving, or 2) improve an existing serve.  Participants must have a consistent and strong overhand.  Participants MUST have a consistent, strong and accurate  overhand serve.  

Emergency Defense:   Players will practice defensive skills through drills that will help them prepare for the randomness of what you’ll have to deal with on the volleyball court.  Quick reaction for tips that aren’t close enough to play with your platform, balls in the net and odd bounces r trajectory off the block are just a few of the situations that will be covered.
