Mark Rosen demonstrates an individual attacking drill that shows the importance of avoiding attacking errors and attempting to kill the ball or keep it in play.
How it works: In this drill, a 'plus' is a kill, a 'zero' is an attack that's dug and remains in play, and a 'minus' is an error. The attacker transitions off the net from the block, digs a hard driven ball to a setter and then attacks. She either attacks a plus, zero or minus ball. Keep tally of her individual score, and give that player a number value to reach - whether that's +5 or +7 or +3. The player must reach that goal before the drill is over.
Requirements: An attacker, setter, full court, full opposing team, coach, cart of balls.
