August's Post of the Month - Four square pepper with Deitre Collins-Parker
In this video, San Diego State Head Coach Deitre Collins-Parker presents a warm-up drill that puts a new spin on traditional pepper. After watching the aerial view of players rotating through the drill, you will see why she calls it Four Square Pepper.
One player stands in each corner, and a setter stands at center court with the ball. The setter tosses the ball to one of the four corners. The player in that corner hits a down ball to the opposite corner where the other three players have already rotated to dig. Whoever digs that down ball runs to her original corner to hit the next set. The other three players run to opposite corner to dig the down ball.
One group goes for two minutes, at which point a new group steps on the court. At any time, the coach can ask the players to switch setters within their group.
