Clinician: Marie Zidek, assistant coach at University of San Diego
Purpose: To make your team comfortable with playing out-of-system balls where the setter is taken out of the equation
How it Works: One coach on each side initiates a hard-driven ball to the setter in right back. This creates an out-of-system ball that has taken the setter out of commission. That team now must figure out another option for putting the ball away. Different options include: The middle hitter swinging at the second ball, the middle hitter setting either of the two remaining hitters, the middle or left back players stepping in and setting, etc. Play a game to ten points and then rotate.
Requirements: 12 players, two coaches, a cart of balls and a full court
