In this drill, all players start on the same side of the net. One player sets from middle-front and two players start left-front and right-front to hit or tip at 3 players defending left-back, middle-back and right-back. Remaining players form a line at middle-back.
Players rotate through the drill by following the ball with the passer becoming the setter, the setter becoming the hitter and the hitter getting in line to defend middle-back. A coach can instruct players to alter the type of swing tip (e.g. cross court, line or off speed) depending on what the team needs to work on defensively.
