Opposite hitters aren’t good at just one thing. They’re good at EVERYTHING. That’s why it can be challenging to train them.
Among their many responsibilities are putting up a solid block that shuts down the opposing outside hitter. Confidently hitting around a tough block. Digging hits that come rocketing at them. Even setting in out-of-system situations. In short, they need to be proficient in all the core volleyball skills.
Prepping players for this multi-faceted role requires a special training regimen. In the Brittany Abercrombie Opposite Training Series, you’ll get 33 information-packed videos covering skill development, technique, footwork, playing strategies and drills—delivered personally by one of today’s best opposite hitters.
And because we understand how busy the life of a coach can be, we’ve made the program entirely self-paced. That means you work through the course when it’s convenient for you.
